Hi Dai

Thank you for a very good tutorial. I looked for a long time, but this was the only one who said clearly that you have to mark the shapebox and not the text when you click text flow around box.

Do you have any videos on how to make 3.fold pages (eg. for a brochure). When I click 3 fold it looks exactly the same as just one page. How do I get the right help lines?

Kind regards

Very useful tute, many thanks.

Slight problems with finding controls in ver 1.3.6 as they are quite different in places to those used in the tute version.

This tutorial gives me courage! The intimidating first impression of Scribus dissolved. Knowing how-to makes me feel at ease with Scribus.

I love using your videos to learn Scribus! Your descriptions are easy to understand and you are answering the questions I have about the software. Thank you!

Informative - but you seem to stumble your way through it.

26. anonymous Thu, 31 Dec 2009 20:16

I have viewed this before and come back to it as a reference. This whole Scribus series by Dia is very helpful.

25. anonymous Wed, 02 Dec 2009 22:46

Great video, its simple to follow, and not too many people have tutorials out there on Scribus so I'm thankful for your Video.

Keep em coming!!!

24. anonymous Mon, 23 Nov 2009 10:34

Very good, simple, and straight-forward

23. anonymous Sat, 19 Sep 2009 09:05

Thank you, David, for taking the time to create these video tutorials. I am a very new usser of Linux and I'm interested in creating a web page, so I thought that it would be instructive to first learn how to use a DTP package, so Scribus was an easy choice for me. It may take me some time to master it, of course, but it's great to be able to go through your tutorials and get an pover view of how ut all works, before having a go at creating a page for the first time. Good work! Thanks again. I've watched the first 3 so far. . .

22. anonymous Thu, 10 Sep 2009 10:31

Even I understand this, great.

Cognitive, but I did not here answer "Why it so?" Why we can not just say "Make it proportionally and move right line of picture little bit more right. I mean make construction without box, only picture.

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
