dear madam apfel,

>  I am enjoying using Scribus.  Even with my limited knowledge of computers, I feel I can obtain a good product with Scribus.  I am having trouble with justification as evidenced by my document attached (text box "When One Expert is not Enough").  I would appreciate any help you can give.

as other users also noticed, you have pressed the carriage return (or 
enter key) at the end of each line instead of letting scribus reflow 
automatically your text.

you should use the return key at the of each paragraph and not at the 
end of the lines.

in order to solve your problem, you may go to the end of each line which 
does not allign correctly and press the delete key to pull up the next 
line. you may have to add a space between the two words if they get joined.

(on a mac (or any computer without a delete key) you may have to go to 
the next line and press the backspace key instead of the delete key.)

finally, under the view menu, you have a "show control character" which 
will show you the space as a colored ° and the end of paragraphs as a 
strange reversed P: showing the control characters may help you to fix 
more quickly the issue.

i hope that this helps you sort out the problem and don't hesitate to 
further ask if you're still stuck!
