What Can You Do With Scribus

Two things. Use Scribus to design and produce magazines, newsletters, print-advertising, brochures, calendars, and pretty much anything that requires text to look visually appealing on paper. Scribus is also a great tool for authoring PDF documents with advanced features such as forms, buttons, passwords, and more. You can make your PDF documents even more 'intelligent' by using Javascript from within Scribus. Our tutorial focusses on how to use Scribus for professional- grade design of publications. It also shows a brief glimple of how to create an intelligent PDF. So let's get started.

For our project, we'll design seven pages for a magazine, including its cover page. Yet within these seven pages, you'll learn enough to create an entire 100-page magazine, or even a full-blown newspaper.
