basically, it's a good idea to have your text checked for spells before
you load it into scribus...

for the rest of us, scribus offers a spell checker at the bottom of
the item menu... it's available on any platform, where it can found
aspell, iirc.

i know that there were some efforts to get it to work on os x, but i
don't recall what the result was.

i admit that i've almost never used... but i fear that the last time
i tried to use it, it didn't really work correctly... but you might try
it yourself!

have a nice day!
