I use Scribus a lot. I manage printing from Acrobat Reader. It is not 
an MS program but rather an Adobe program. 

One of the things about Linux is that things that are combined in one 
huge program on MS are broken up into many smaller independent 
programs. So I can use Scribus for layout, export the file as pdf, then 
print it from Adobe.  True, Scribus also has a print function but 
Adobe Acrobat Reader has more bells and whistles. You can of course 
use Foxit if you prefer.
