Some books
« on: May 10, 2020, 01:34:49 pm »
Hi everybody!
Some years have passed since I definitely moved to work with Scribus and, in order to thank all the people working to improve its code and develop it, I would like to share some works in this forum.

Some covers made with Scribus and exported as print-ready PDFs for the printing house:









Some of the graphics were created with Inkscape and imported to Scribus (note that Scribus imports directly .svg documents, which is pretty nice).

Some “insider” pics of the books:











Notice that it is possible to create a table of contents, even a larger or complex one. Or even several within a document. The procedure, though, is quite tricky, because it implies lot of handwork. If some one is interested, this link should help:

https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Creating_a_Table_of_Contents

As a summary, I would say everything needed to create a book with Scribus is there. Some feature could have muuuch less steps (as the creation of a table of contents, or the edition of several pages in “arrange pages” by selecting more than one each time), but it works. Without a question, the feature I miss most is to split documents in order to work with larger works (as mentioned here http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,2620.0.html).





Big thanks for the Scribus’ Team and best regards!
