Editors' Review

Scribus is a free desktop publishing program that lets you create all kinds of documents, from brochures to business cards, quickly and efficiently. You can use one of the included templates for your project, or just start from scratch and use the included tools to design a finished project that's perfectly in line with your vision.

Pros

File compatibility: In addition to creating completely new documents, this program also allows you to open existing ones. Most file formats are supported, so whether you've used other programs previously and want to keep working on items you started there, or you need to access files sent to you from colleagues, you'll be able to continue your work with ease.

Template options: There are templates available through this program for just about every type of document you might want to create. Additionally, each document type offers multiple templates for you to choose from, and you can then customize them to suit your specific needs.

Cons

Incomplete documentation: Due to the open source nature of this program, the documentation and Help resources are a little scattered. There are several options to explore when you have a problem or question, but it can take some time to find the answers you're looking for.

Bottom Line

Scribus is a good alternative to more expensive and elaborate desktop publishing programs. It provides a lot of functionality and supports multiple file types, making it a versatile choice for moderate creative needs. It's not as polished or high-powered as many top-tier programs, so power users might not find everything they're looking for. But since it's free, it doesn't hurt to try it out and see if it's a good option for you.
