Ah yes, sorry for not replying. Both programs seem to work on raster 
images. I, however, would like to "simply" split the Scribus A3 pages 
when exporting them to pdf (as two-pages A4 documents). Text would 
remain text instead of being rasterised. I was wondering if there were 
some settings in Scribus that would allow me to do this.
