Hi Ken. What sort of DTP software are you used to using? It could help for ideas to help you transition.

Before actually trying 1.5.1, I thought about making manual bullet line
and turning it into a style. Opened Style Manager, there were bullets
and numbering in the paragraph styles tab.
But I'm finding making styles work not to be all that intuitive. To be
frank, P1$$ed me off. Tomorrow, I'll decide whether to continue with
Scribus, or try something else. Simply running out of time and
enthusiasm here. :-(
I rarely find software to be this difficult for me to get a handle on. :-(
