In my experience the safest way to print from 1.3.3.x is via PDF. I've 
had a couple of files that have had bits missing if printed directly 
from Scibus. While this does seem to be fixed in 1.3.5svn, you probably 
don't want to go there !

I've yet to encounter a Scribus PDF that gave poor images, but yes they 
can be big. I did a pretty dense two side A4 flyer earlier in the week 
which was very well received, but came to 11.1 meg, which pretty much 
precludes emailing it to most people.

Cheers, J/.
