first: ciao means "hi" and "good bye" in italian. in many languages
it's used for goodbye. as you can see in the "from address field" of
most of my mails, i am called "ale", and it's the short form for
"alessandro". an italian name. i like to put some dots around the "l"
for aesthetic and social critic reasons.

second: there are several ways to create two parallel straight lines
in scribus. some of them are even quite easy.

there are also rather simple ways to center some text on top of some

seeing the efforts me and other people are putting in explaining you
lot of basics scribus skills, and seeing that you're still not
happy with it, instead of spending lot of words in trying to get you to
click the right button, i prefer to suggest you to buy a good scribus
book and first learn some basics.
i like the one written by cédric gemy for packt publishing.
as an alternative, please consider attending a scribus course.

have a nice evening
