I want to be able to make oval labels to print out and I am at the point where I can click on a circle shape and get it to become an oval but for the life of me can not work the colours??

I don't think I can agree with the sentiment that Inkscape = easy 
(intuitive) and Scribus = hard (nonintuitive).

I don't find Inkscape especially intuitive at all. It's certainly easy 
to just begin clicking and do stuff on the page, but there are a 
dizzying number of widgets and gadgets and rather obtuse menu items.

I think we're  pretty tolerant of people having their opinions here, but 
that doesn't mean we're happy about people using this ML to tout the 
benefits of Inkscape or TeX or whatever over Scribus.

It's something like being invited to dinner at a person's home and then 
talking about how good the food was somewhere else.
