"Great Free Program"
Great Freedom to do what you want. Files come out looking fantastic. Great WYSIWYG pdf compression. Great ability to scale down file size without losing quality.
Lacks spell check in program. You MUST keep the pictures you integrate into the doc in the same location on your computer, other wise the program losses track of them. Somewhat inelegant when it comes to switching fonts.
Scribus has somewhat of a learning curve, and is not as smooth as pay programs, but it gets the job done, and well. I have produced numerous professional quality documents with it. I think I'd be willing to pay for this, so the fact that it is free makes it a great find.
