Quote from: jvecht on October 06, 2014, 11:53:31 PMis there a better way to align text (and having it flow around), images and captions than how I did it for this first one?
Quote from: GarryP on October 07, 2014, 03:49:37 PM* And I probably wouldn't align the text in the captions to the baseline grid. (A slight movement of the image+caption pair could cause the text to jump around trying to re-align itself and you end up trying to arrange the image to suit the caption, which is the wrong way round.)

Quote from: GarryP on October 09, 2014, 02:00:41 PMYou're welcome, and I'm glad you've taken all of our comments in the spirit of advice rather than criticism.If you'd like some advice on design choices for this particular document I don't see a problem with continuing this thread. However, if it's more general design advice then it might be best to start a new thread so other people can find it more easily. (For example, most people wouldn't associate "Aligning multiple text frames" in the thread title with "design choices".) The choice (no pun intended) is yours.
Quote from: GarryP on October 09, 2014, 02:00:41 PMIt wouldn't necessarily be Scribus-specific advice or "hard facts", more of an "If you keep these guidelines in mind you shouldn't go too far wrong for most documents" kind of thing.
