Hi :)
Thanks! :) It didn't quite work for my newsletter but it may open things
up a bit for other documents we have struggled with here.

I'm beginning to see why Charles tried to find out about what sort of thing i'm aiming for. Scribus has a LOT of options and templates and stuff early
on.  Form over content, of course.

I think i am going to struggle on with it a bit first to make a prototype
and learn as i go.  Then do the real thing another week.

I had been thinking about using Draw as a stepping stone - using lots of
linked text-boxes but i think it's going to be easier to just leap into
Scribus from the start. I'm not sure how work-flow is going to go in the future but i have a feeling most of the content is going to be best done in
Regards from
Tom :)

Hello Tom,

Draw is an option - if your newsletter is a bit "basic" I understand this as being text-intensive? In this case Draw is not necessarily the best part of LibreOffice for you: Writer has all sorts of features to offer: text over several columns, text frames, half transparent images insertion. Writer is (and I know anyone from Scribus will scream reading this) designed as a DTP software just as much as it is a word processor. If you consider Writer (okay, Draw would be similar) then indeed, exporting your document to PDF will work out perfectly. By the way, what is your output format supposed to be?

Hi Tom:

I check the Scribus open file format and it accept .pdf, I made a
with one document of mine, and Scribus open it.

I suggest you to export your .odf file to .pdf and then open it
Scribus. I don't know how it will configure the pages opens but it would
be well.
