Scribus: Professional page layout for Linux

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 71.102.164.126] on January 03, 2008 06:46 AM
I am using Scribus to port over my cookbook from InDesign, a slow process since there is no way to export and import different formats. Basically, I am starting all over again. The one thing I find lacking in the application which is a must for any book is the ability to create and automatically update index pages. Sadly, no feature exists yet. At least you can create a contents page and update that, although not intuitive to do so. Still, for an open source desktop publishing program with no big corporate backing, it is a nice app overall. Looking forward to future updates and additions.
