[Scribus] Scribus Digest, Vol 53, Issue 14 Item 6 - importing WORD
Thu Jul 12 10:56:28 CEST 2007
I believe that for Scribus to be really useful in the general DPT community it
must import Word and Word Publisher text and graphics WITH FORMATTING.
There are other low-cost DTP offerings which need this feature - but at least
they have a full booklet mode. Lacking both, Scribus is way behind.
Using a mixture of Windows and RISCOS I can achieve a conversion which is
essentially Word/Publisher -> pdf -> RISCOS DRAW ->SVG - surely Windows can
offer something here. Complete RTF import would help.
The alternatives are to standardise on Word Publisher! (please no!) or Ventura
