Comment from Marvin Dickens: "May I suggest the possibility of adding a reference to scripting due to the power that this feature adds to the application."

Fontconfig support in 1.2.x


            Fontconfig, the library used by Scribus  to  locate  fonts,"

Scribus 1.2.x actually doesn't support fontconfig, according to this mail from Craig Ringer:

Please someone clarify this issue and correct this man page draft.

100% Guaranteed, 1.2.x does not support fontconfig. Its supported in 1.3 when you have the F flag in Help About. --Cbradney 08:12, 3 May 2005 (UTC)


  • add info about the Short Words config files (now a part of Scribus)
  • remove notice about $HOME/.scribus/prefs.xml (only relevant for 1.3.x series)

This is not only relevant for 1.3.x series. Its used for storage of window locations, previous directories used etc. --Cbradney 08:12, 3 May 2005 (UTC)

  • is the list of Scribus options up to date?
