Hi Anke

Of course you are!

The help via the help menu is the topic of the discussion. If you don't have it because you use
Ubuntu or Debian, then please add it if you accept its not DFSG compliant. Take what you want from
it - just don't take it as a whole and republish it as a book and sell it (which obviously is not
your aim anyway).

If you are teaching on 1.3.3, then
http://www.amazon.com/Scribus-Open-Source-Publishing-Christoph-Sch%C3%A4fer/dp/0956078001 might be
useful for you as a reference.
