Thank you very much for the demo. It helped me a lot!!

At 73 I have just loaded Scribus 1.3.3 on my Vista Laptop and 1.3.6 on my X.P desktop, I am finding you videos very good its just as if you are sat next to me. Some of the changes in the 1.3.6 menu's are a bit tricky do you intend to cover the changes. An overview video of changes would be great. Colin P

Hello Dai,

Thanks for your wonderful tutorials , in fact this being my first foray into the world of DTP I must say that you made a difficult and forbidding territory seem pretty easy to navigate around. But I have been using the scribus 1.3.6 svn which is the latest one in the series and I dare say that I am a little confused since the menus used in your tutorials and the ones in 1.3.6 have either changed or being used quite differently. text style for example. please help.

Lesson 13 was highly valuable in clarifying past lessons re inserting image, text around image, making white space around image, and creating columns.

I really like your slow and relaxing delivery. So ofter video presenters are herky jerky and obviously nervous. Even when you stumble in locating a tool or command, you are quite collected. Good subject matter and great deliver. Only suggestion would be can your recording volume be increased?

The column issue really puzzled me a lot before I saw're great Dai..Keep up the good work

The latest version of ubuntu (gutsy) comes with scribus 1.3.9

Review of Scribus multiple columns and svg images

Hey Dai -

These are great little tutorials. It really helped me understand Scribus - how it works, and how to work it! Now I want to get the later version. (Ubuntu is supplying 1.25 in their repository)

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
