So for me, the copy came first and I didn't need to employ another program to get the flyer, poster, newsletter, etc. into production. This was and is very common workflow in a print shop.  So let me add my voice to those who would like to see an operating spellchecker in Scribus!

Oh, and as I have said in other posts.. that *is* how it works on Linux now aspell. When you install
those commercial apps you do not see what libraries or binaries they install if you don't go
looking. Scribus also includes lots in our installers for various reasons. Just because we mention
aspell, doesnt mean its a separate app.
