editor's review





Having access to a comprehensive desktop publishing solution is very important if you want to create professional looking documents without too much hustle. Scribus is a Mac app designed to help you manage various types of publishing projects in an intuitive, streamlined manner.

Effortless to install desktop publishing solution that can handle multiple layouts

For your convenience, Scribus comes with a collection of layout templates suitable for different purposes: brochures, business cards, cards, newsletters, PDF presentations, packaging, or posters. Each time you start a new project, you have the option to employ a template, hence reduce the processing time.

At the same time, the application enables you to start from scratch: you can quickly create blank documents designed to be a single page or projects sporting double sided, or 3 / 4 fold sheets. In addition, you get to adjust the margins or bleeds sizes, the page orientation, the width and height, and more.

Personalize the document layout by using powerful yet intuitive layout editing tools

Within the Scribus main window, you get to preview the document content and perform various adjustments: you can make new frames, edit text, include images, customize styles, draw various shapes, and so on.

Most of the editing tools are placed in the main window’s top toolbar, while the bottom area allows you to change the measurement units, navigate the entire documents, or adjust the viewing mode. Further customization options are available via the Scribus Preferences window: here you can adjust the default parameters for each specific tool.

Resourceful desktop publishing solution for creating professional looking documents in no time

Scribus comes with a straightforward, intuitive design, but includes a plethora of powerful editing tools: you get to work with frames, vector objects, various color sets, Ghostscripts fonts, and much more. The final projects can be easily exported to text, EPS, PDF, SVG, or image files, and then quickly shared with others.
