Scribus Document Information


There are a couple of important points to consider in the doc info fields:

  1. Scribus supports an initiative called the Dublin Core Initiative. Dublin Core, for short, is a set of specification on document meta-data.
  2. The other feature is the fields on the First tab are used in PDF export, as well as also being part of Dublin Core meta-data. This data can be used by special indexing servers which can index PDF files, as well as Acrobat Reader. The Second tab contains meta-data in Dublin Core form which can also be used for using a database to track Scribus files.
