Scribus imports In Design produced IDML format files,
but resulting scribus document is far from perfect and requires tweaks afterward.

Scribus also imports In Design PDF produced files.
Resulting scribus document looks as desired, (all the more when you use scribus 1.5.4)
but text is now considered as vector shapes, not glyphs, which prevent text edit.
