Hello Peter

It already took a lot off effort to get a CMS running on my
Linux-Desktop (and to understand the whole CMS-background myself). And,
as programs I use are able to handle it, I do use it. 
Dont like to go back to pre-CMS times, although I understand that an
experienced graphical designer was and is able to handle programs and
CYMK-color mixes very well without a CMS.

Thank you for the inkscape tip, I already had a look on it, lets see, if
I'll finally do my work in inkscape.
The point was, that i used OOdraw rather like a layout program than a
drawing application (or a t least as a mixture of both), thats why I
came to Scribus.

In fact the one thing i really miss at the moment in Scibus (but might
find out that there is a solution) is the ease to place graphical
objects/pictures and do fast copy and past of one object on one single
For example I use about 70 times the same little cherries picture on one
page for a algebra working-card. 
This is done fairly quick in OOdraw, with scribus at the moment it seems
to take a lot more time. (But as I wrote, I might find a solution for
this, or find out, that i can do this quite fast in Scribus too).

Well, but I still would like to get some answer to my first question ;-)
Liebe Grüße,
