Having looked at the price of InDesign & reeled in shock, I looked for an alternative. Scribus looks
great. I already use Apache OpenOffice, so I'm used to Open Source software.
What I'm looking to learn to do is format books for ebook & paperback editions. I don't really fancy
doing it on the CreateSpace website & I definitely don't fancy their charges for doing it for you.
I picked up a copy of the Scribus 1.3.5 Beginner's Guide by Cedric Geary and was a little worried
when I read in the preface that Scribus was ideal for helping create business card, brochures,
newsletters, magazines & catalogues, but books aren't mentioned. Is Scribus up to the task of laying
out paperback books and are there any limitations I need to know about going in?
Thanks - Dave Brzeski
