The two we have are completely reasonable as they are, but it might make sense to move the Preferences to another menu. I very much doubt that Craig will rewrite the DocSetup/Prefs dialogues without convincing data that the current model impedes the use of Scribus.
That's right. I'm not rewriting it. There is no convincing data, just some loud talkers.
Maybe we can clarify some stuff but people also need to compare functionality to other apps.
Preferences or Options are standard terms for the same thing. On OSX, Preferences is in the standard location under the Scribus application menu. Some apps have File->Preferences and others have Tools->Options or Edit->Options.
We could consider a document menu but that is also what the file menu is for in all apps.
Document Setup is also clear enough.
Ale's last response covers it well.
