In Scribus, you make text columns "inside" a text frame, like
InDesign, QuarkXpress or Ventura. In PageMaker, you may draw every
single column.

The most important shortcut in Scribus is F2, the toolbox.

>  Hi All,
> I saw this application on filehippo.com and decided to download it. I see it resembles my current document application PageMaker 7.0a. I am a newspaper publisher in my family business and never made the jump to any other program like InDesign. I wanted to know from you all if Scribus is powerful and dependable enough to use as a primary newspaper maker. My papers are published once a week every Friday. PageMaker has been great, but I'm ready to move on to something more updated. Any feedback and comparisons of the two programs would be greatly appreciated; especially the pros and cons.
