Printer as in one who operates a print shop or a machine that places text
and/or images on media?

The printer in question is Lightning Source Inc., the digital printing arm
of Ingram Book Group. LSI is widely used by publishers large and small, some
of whom frequent this list. Being able to produce PDFs that conform to the
PDF/X-1a:2001 standard is a high priority for many publishers. It is my
understanding that this feature is planned for a future version of Scribus
but is not yet available for Windows even in a bleeding edge version.
