Learning to learn again
The release of version 1.4 of Scribus was the trigger for an entire series of blog posts („Krieg der Welten — War of the worlds“), because I wanted to know if I’d be able to create a printed version of a flyer that I can easily set up from scratch in InDesign within about an hour or two.
And yes, it is very much possible to go to press with Scribus. My test showed only two major shortcomings during testing:
- There are no true transparencies.
- I can’t get a quick print on my home inkjet printer.
All other stuff works; pretty well, actually. After holding the printed flyer in my hands I even have to conclude that RGB to CMYK transformations are very nice and neutral. And on top of that Scribus can do some things that make it a very interesting tool for some special use cases.
