ABOUT







Scribus

Free open source desktop page layout program in the tradition of Corel Ventura, Quark Xpress, PageMaker and InDesign, designed for Linux and Unix. Flexible PDF creation options, PDF Import, Encapsulated Postscript import/export and creation of 4 color separations. Scribus also supports via freetype Unicode text including right to left scripts such as Arabic and Hebrew. Graphic formats which can be placed in Scribus include Encapsulated Post Script (eps), TIFF(Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG), Portable Network Graphics (png) and XPixMap(xpm). The PDF driver from Scribus can embed fonts for postscript printing and you can use and output high resolution EPS files. Other useful features include manual kerning of type, rotating object frames, bezier curves polygons, precision placement of objects, layering with RGB and CMYK custom colors. Unlike proprietary binary file formats, even damaged documents can be recovered with a simple text editor. Python scripts extend the usefulness. Among these, we find Font Sample Generator (which makes samples of your installed fonts). Author and Maintainer: Franz Schmid. Programming contributions from Paul Johnson, Christian Töpp, and Alastair Robinson.
