Important note from Mrdocs (maintainer of the Scribus official documentation)
Any bug reports with free fonts or issues with Scribus using free fonts will be looked at very skeptically. There are extensive warnings and notes why this can be an issue in the main docs about using free fonts because of quality/correctness issues. --Mrdocs 22:05, 19 Feb 2005 (UTC)
