Hi. My PC died and I am thinking of switching to MAC. But, I have many documents I created using Scribus on my old Windows PC. Will Scribus for MAC successfully open and work with these documents? Has anyone ever done this before? Thanks.

hi scmooney     
 
i had a lot of .sla files created under windows on my mac. the only problems will be font related – at least if you used microsoft standard fonts.   
(you have to copy them with your projects…)

Thanks, utnik. This is very good news. I think I can negotiate the font issue OK
