New Scribus Users

Scribus newbies may enjoy starting with the tutorial

The Wiki Category:Contents page may be a good starting point if you are looking for a particular category or a how-to.

The category tree on the left side strives to present a structural view of all articles in the wiki. Be sure to click the [+] to see the various subcategories for help in finding what you're looking for.

If you are using 1.4's release candidates, please be sure to check the online manual (F1), which will likely give you much more up to date information than you will see on the documentation site.

The Official Manual is available for order and shipping!

Our own comprehensive manual, detailing everything you need to know to get started and use Scribus, is now shipping from Amazon and other online booksellers.

See all Scribus books on the Scribus Books Page.

Scribus developers

The Scribus Development section lists all developmental sub-projects and opportunities for interested people. The Development category is the main hub of documentation related to Scribus development, which can be used for a rapid lookup of the relevant section. The main areas of Scribus development consist, but are not limited to coding the Scribus core in C++/Qt4, writing plugins and scripts in C++ and Python respectively, translation of the Scribus interface and documentation, writing and maintenance of user documentation in the wiki and svn for the help browser, and user support in #scribus IRC channel on Freenode and on the Scribus mailing list.

What has happened to the Wiki?

We can understand if you're having trouble finding things here, since the appearance and structure of the wiki have changed. For the most part, the content is the same. Some notes on the Wiki should help you, and we'll try to keep it up to speed with changes, since there are likely more to come.

Latest releases:
