   Subject: Ventura Publisher
I am trying to drop Windows altogether, and go to Ubuntu.  But I run a  
baseball league for kids every summer, and depend on Ventura Publisher ( a  
WYSIWYG desktop publishing program) to make all necessary forms, and to  
produce good-looking many-page manuals for coaches and parents.  I wonder if  
moving to Scribus would be workable for me?  I don't need absolute  
compatibility with Ventura, but I have found Ventura to be very convenient  
over the years, so would like a Linux DTP program that has similar  
attributes.  Would Scribus be good for me?  Or is it mainly just a  
single-page layout program, that might bog down when tackling something like  
a 35-page user manual for example?
