Scribus: a Reference

"Scribus: a Reference" by Greg Pittman (2012).

Scribus a reference 2012 gp.png This is a work in progress, though I think it's usable in its current state. It is a different sort of book from most of the manuals that have been published, in that it is pretty strictly a reference. So far, at least, there is nothing about layout, mostly the mechanical aspects of various menu commands, context menus, and so on.

I don't have any plans to release in anything other than a freely available eBook format.
