Because color matters

Creative desktop publishing without color is like cooking without spicery. Scribus is being shipped with almost 200 color palettes, and we will add almost 400 more for download in the next stable version. Most of these are commercial color systems, but the collection also includes national and government color standards or open source color collections. Scribus supports RGB, CMYK and spot colors and, most importantly, provides a robust and very reliable color management that leaves you in control of color display and conversion. Moreover, in Scribus you can emulate various forms of color blindness to see how your color choices affect people with color vision deficiencies.

Because you want predictable results at the printer

Reliable PDF creation is the key to a successful print run at a commercial printing house, and it has been a pillar of Scribus development since the early days of its development. Scribus was the first DTP program in the world that supported the demanding PDF/X-3 specification. Scribus also offers a wide range of options with respect to PDF export. Issues with PDFs created by Scribus always enjoy the highest development priority and will be solved immediately.

Publishing for Everyone

We left in pretty good time, and came after nightfall to Klausenburgh. Here I stopped for the night at the Hotel Royale. I had for dinner, or rather supper, a chicken done up some way with red pepper, which was very good but thirsty. (Mem. get recipe for Mina.) I asked the waiter, and he said it was called “paprika hendl,” and that, as it was a national dish, I should be able to get it anywhere along the Carpathians. I read that every known superstition in the world is gathered into the horseshoe of the Carpathians, as if it were the centre of some sort of imaginative whirlpool; if so my stay may be very interesting. (Mem., I must ask the Count all about them.) The impression I had was that we were leaving the West and entering the East; the most western of splendid bridges over the Danube, which is here of noble width and depth, took us among the traditions of Turkish rule.
