Thanks for all your wonderful videos!

Thanks a lot for making this video tutorial. I like watching that so much more than reading a wiki tutorial!

Maybe you could make the video a bit shorter and cut out the time it took to find the picture file. But this is just my perception

Well done!

Thank you so much for your videos. I have used Adobe Indesign before and never used Scribus. All your videos really made the difference to learn Scribus and see the differences and the power of the program.

Thank you again

I watched all of your series. I just want to thank you for your time and energy you have spent on the videos. They have been a help to me.

I would like to know how to use scribus to create a booklet. For example letter sized paper set to landscape laid out so that the pages can be folded in half and stapled together in a booklet. Any tops for that?

I have seen your video tutorials on Scribus and I have no words to thank you. you have done wonderful work.

Your website is also very impressive and just goes to show how much time and effort you have spent to help others learn different things related to the computer.

The section on How to Make ShowMeDO screencasts is very helpful. I am Indian, stay in Mumbai, India and I am tempted to make some screencasts in Indian languages, so that others can benefit.


Great thanks for all of your scribus tutorial works! I've some experience about this soft. but with your succesfully help I've been more... Thank!

great tips on manipulating shpes. i would like to see more on this subject. thanks

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
