Thanks for the welcome to Scribus.

I do know about the manual for 1.3.5.  I haven't bought it yet, trying to
catch up with some bills at the moment, and reverse the current cash flow
situation!   LOL

If I find Scribus becoming more important and useful to me, I'll certainly
buy the book.  I am a sucker for books, and rarely go into a bookstore with
out leaving with something.  Used books are my real downfall!  :)
