<h4>Overview</h4>
<p>The open and XML based file format used by OpenOffice.org in all versions, share some common traits with Scribus. The clear documentation and specs have helped the Scribus Team to create very useful import features. Expect more enhancements in the future. One of the pleasant surprises to see in the OpenOffice.org version 2 beta releases is the improved EPS exporter. The 1.1.x version sometimes had difficulties exporting correctly. The exporter in V 2.x in testing here seems to create better, more conformant files, which Scribus imports with little difficulties. Except for OpenOffice.org Writer files, the magic trick to get high quality imports into Scribus depends on using OO.org Draw. Almost any type of OpenOffice.org file can be imported into Scribus with high fidelity, provided you export from Draw as EPS. Native Draw files can usually be imported directly into Scribus. </p>
<h4>Importing from OpenOffice.org Writer</h4>
<p>The importer for Writer imports <strong>only</strong> the text contained in your document. Images and drawing need to be saved separately outside of the Writer document and imported separately. Thus, a compound Writer document with tables of charts will not import the tables or charts. Tables, charts or other embedded objects, need to be separately placed in a Draw file and exported by the methods below.</p>
<p>The importer for Writer imports <strong>only</strong> the text contained in your document. Images and drawing need to be saved separately outside of the Writer document and imported separately.</p>
<p>The singular most important issue to take into consideration for hassle free OO.org Writer import is well chosen usage and correctly applying styles in OO.org. Doing so will greatly reduce the amount of time needed within Scribus to format and style text. Any special paragraph styles in your Writer document will automatically be imported into your existing Scribus layout.</p>

Activating Color Management *requires* installation of CMYK and RGB ICC
profiles. Please see the included help files, FAQ's on www.scribus.net and
http://docs.scribus.net for details. As of the 1.3.1 release, Scribus ships with
http://docs.scribus.net for details. Current versions of Scribus 1.3.1 ships with
2 icc profiles, which are installed only to enable color management functionality.
The profiles do not provide meaningful color management for printing. Additional
profiles are downloadable from www.scribus,net and depend on your hardware and

There is a bug in font outline handling for some fonts in the freetype
libraries. It's being worked on upstream. Don't file a bug report. Instead
change the font used if you need the outlines. This is not a Scribus bug.
Some testing has shown that this bug is not present in freetype 2.1.9+, but
Some testing has shown that this bug is not present in freetype 2.1.9, but
we counsel caution trying to upgrade freetype2. Upgrading freetype2 on some
distributions can be quite difficult.
 
PSD/CMYK TIFF Support
 
1.3.1 now has support for CMYK PSD and 8-bit CMYK TIFF support. RGB PSD and
1.3.1cvs now has support for CMYK PSD and 8-bit CMYK TIFF support. RGB PSD and
16-bit TIFF support is being developed. PSD and TIFF support includes layers, ICC
profiles and embedding clipping paths.

3)To enable direct CUPS support which recommended, make sure both cups-devel
and openssl-devel are installed. Suse enables ssl support in CUPS. The
current Scribus config checks do not test for this.
4)There is an issue with certain dialogs in Scribus with Suse 9.3 and 10.0
and Yes, No order. This is adressed in:
