Quote from: GarryP on June 26, 2017, 10:33:07 AMWelcome to the forum asoftwareuser794.There are some things worth saying:A. The version of Scribus given by Mint is not - at the time of writing - the right one. Mint 17.x gives 1.4.3 which is old and 18.x gives a weird version that doesn't have colour management. See http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,2464.0.html for more information.B. Scribus is not a PDF editor. Scribus is for creating PDFs. It can import PDFs but it should not be used for reading/editing them. Even if Scribus 1.5.x introduces some PDF editing functions they will be experimental at best. If you need to edit PDFs then use something else.C. Scribus 1.5.x is a developmental branch of Scribus. All the 1.5.x versions are "experimental" and should only be used if you have a good knowledge of how Scribus works so that you know what is a bug from what is normal. The word "unstable" in the link you followed gives a clue.D. Printing from Firefox to a PDF printer driver really doesn't have anything to do with Scribus.

QuoteThe development branch is currently 1.5.x. It's mainly being released for people who want to help us testing and improving Scribus, so the next stable series (1.6.x) will work well. However, as of version 1.5.1, we consider the development branch reasonably stable, so it can be used for serious work by users who accept that not all new features are already working perfectly. Features already available in the officially stable version will work much better in 1.5.1+, though.It is also possible to install 1.4.x and 1.5.x side by side, so you can work with one version and play with the other.

QuoteSince a PDF is an output of Scribus it might be reasonable to assume that it can open its own output. After all, GIMP outputs PNGs and JPEGs and it can open them...
