Scribus: Open Source Desktop Publishing App

Scribus is a free open-source desktop publishing program that offers powerful features across platforms. It provides support for CMYK color, separations, ICC color management, and versatile PDF creation. Scribus Aqua, a port of Scribus using Qt Free, enhances its appearance and functionality on OS X.

However, Scribus can be unintuitive in certain areas, particularly when it comes to formatting. Importing text may result in formatting issues as everything needs to be done manually. Changing fonts requires a separate preview window, rather than real-time updates. On the positive side, dragging and dropping elements is easy, and documents can be exported in EPS, SVG, and PDF formats. Importing PDF and EPS files, however, requires GhostScript, which can be challenging for beginners without scripting knowledge.

Although Scribus has potential, it falls short compared to industry-standard tools like Quark and can be difficult to use at times.
