the scribus list is not only a good place to talk about scribus, but is a very good place to talk about editorial workflows and alternative way of handling a problem.

in this specific case, i wonder if you're using the right tools in the right way...

but, before i can give you any hint -- what to use and how to use it -- i guess we all need to know a bit more about what you are trying to achieve.

- what are the features of scribus, that made you think that it is *the* software you want to use for your project?

- which workflow do you want to support with your sowftware collection?

- ...

have fun
