Introduction

The following beginner's tutorial on the use of Scribus for page layout and PDF creation is based on Get Started With Scribus by Niyam Bhushan which has been published in April 2004. In July 2006, a bunch of experienced Scribus users and Scribus Wiki authors (contributors, as we call ourselves) decided to update and extend the old tutorial. Our goal is to adjust the valuable texts, designs, and images by Niyam Bushan to Scribus's current capabilities. While we intend to keep to the original spirit of Niyam's tutorial, this work is not going to be its mere continuation, but will finally go its own way with respect to content and concepts.
