Dai - thank you so much for taking the time and effort to make these helpful and informative lessons, have really learned a lot from watching your video tutorials. Recently I volunteered to compose our woodturning clubs' newsletter and am finding your video lessons SO very helpful in helping me navigate through Scribus. Thank you - thank you - THANK YOU!

PS, Ilove the way you say okie doke at the beginning of each lesson :)

Good lesson. A critical one.

Was looking for a tutorial on doing a whole book in Scribus. Yours was the first tutorial I could find that explained how to link text frames. Still not quite there, as I'd like to know how to bring in a 300 + page document and have the pages / frames generated from the length of the document, so I will keep searching. But thanks: you've gotten me a bit further. :-)

Hello Dai,

Thank you so much for your time to help people out there. I really appreciate your dedication ever first in its kind so far I have come accross. I am at the moment learning Scribus and trying to combine with Latex as well and flip-flopping in the best of these two magnifiscent softwares. Keep it up and I will count on your help in the future.

Dai: I must say you are a great teacher, everything you show is cristal-clear, and your calm and easy going style to do it, is relaxing, really. I never went to such great amount of knowledge for an application in a single day...

yuo should be doing DVD´s on this :).

6. anonymous Fri, 04 Jul 2008 22:26

Thank Dai, I appreciate all the effort that went into making this. Its easier to watch a video than hunt around for text on the internet.

Best Regards,


Thanks a lot Dai

I just watched all your 27 videos about Scribus and I have learned a lot. They are very helpful. Keep up the good work.

I wonder, if you could tell us a bit more about exporting to PDF. I'm trying to make a little booklet and have bit of trouble working sorting the pages in the right order to make a A5 booklet by printing A4 paper. Do you have any idea?

Yours Eleanora

Cette fois , j'ai encore appris quelque chose de nouveau!

Merci encore!

Bon week end

Thank you so much for your tutorial series for Scribus.

I just finished watching all 27. They are awesome and so helpful. I thought I was in way over my head when I first downloaded the program but now after only two day I'm already editing the newsletter I wanted to do.

One thing, if you need an idea for a video could you please do one explaining BEZIER CURVES. I just just can't figure out the principle behind them and so I can't get to look like I want them to. They just end up being a squiggly mess.

Thanks again and great work!


Review of Linking Text Boxes

Thanx Dai, I have just watch 27. Whenever I have had a play with linked text boxes, I realised that when I have done something one box that action can affect all of the subsequent text boxes

Video published, thanks for contributing to ShowMeDo

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

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
