Ok, John I used your cover template generator and everything was fine until
I exported to PDF. All of the information comes out great except for the
text where I am using Edwardian Script. Is there something wrong with that
font? Do I need to do something first before I export to PDF. Or do I just
need to use a different font? Any help would be appreciated.

...and do have a nice day!!!!

My help is listed in my sig block below. Cheaper and less trouble 
than InDesign.  Why people using Scribus bother with the LSI 
template is beyond me.  You can draw up your own template after a 
visit to:

Some authors tell me that they sent LSI a cover in the form of a 
TIFF file and it worked just fine.  Haven't tried it myself but 
maybe I'll experiment.
