Scribus Help & Tips

As we've said before, it is a good practice to put all your project files in one folder


Frames are used to place objects like pictures or text into your document.


Right click items and choose Properties (F2). This is where you will find many options in Scribus.


As with other programs we've used, you need to Save/Save As if you want to keep working on a file and Export the file when you're finished working.
