struggling with my French at bit....

Scribus will not be able to import Xpress files, but if you have the raw
materials (photos, etc.) you could certainly re-create output in PDF format.
Probably good to familiarize oneself with Scribus from the various
information websites:


One thing to add is that, at least to this point, Scribus has maintained
the ability to import files from any *previous* version files, so there
is less concern about obsolescence.


One thing I forgot to add. I'm not a Mac user, so this issue of a G4 Mac ca. 2004 is a bit 
unknown to me regarding Scribus and which versions can work. We do have some Mac users who 
can help with this.
