It was quite fine but what about putting text into table?

Many thanks for a great set of tutorials, your laid back style works well!

I'm sure I'll be all makes perfect sense whilst watching but doing is another thing entirely....

colors, borders, etc. all very nice. May i recommend to add something about actually putting text into the table? I think that is the most common use. Boring, but IMHO essential.



As a new user of Scribus, I really appreciate all the work you have done to make these tutorials. They have been a huge help and I hope you will keep going!



Hello Dai - another great screencast on Scribus, thanks.

I really think you'd benefit if you wrote longer descriptions - Google would have more keywords to use to help send curious searchers over to your fine tutorials.

I do think we could increase the number of people who watch your videos just by increasing the length of your descriptions to several paragraphs.

I have begun to write some notes here:

and I'm happy to receive feedback on the ideas.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Dai
