Short Book/Pamphlet
« on: August 30, 2012, 12:50:06 am »
I'm looking to publish a short book of poetry. Perhaps 30 pages. I'm finding that I may be a bit in over my head. I can't even figure out how to import the text documents. I need all the help I can get.

hi

create a text frame and right click on it to load the content of a text frame...

while the text frame is selected, you can also load the content through the "file > import > ..." menu entry.

ciao

Did you try googling for "scribus tutorial"?

If you can't figure out how to get text into Scribus there's probably a lot of other things that you should learn too.

I figured it out. You have to create a text frame first.
