Workflows and Collaboration

Q A
When I email Scribus .sla documents to others, they have trouble opening them. How do I fix this? Some have noted, some mailers add extra lines to the Scribus doc. Saving as a compressed sla.gz seems to fix this. Plus, Scribus files compress very well.
So, how can I work with others who might have other DTP applications? Use EPS, SVG or PDF as an exchange format. Scribus created PDF files can be easily imported into a number of commercial applications. SVG import is excellent for vector artwork. Scribus can import EPS files as long as they are conforming to the specs - this includes spot colors in DCS 2.0 files. The documentation has detailed notes covering these subjects. You can also improve EPS import by ensuring you have the newest Ghostscript installed.
