<h3><a name="1"></a>User Interface (not present in Document Setup)</h3>
<h4>Main Window</h4>
<p><img src="images/prefs_userinterface_tab1.png" align="center"></p>
<p>You may have started up Scribus in a particular <strong>Language</strong> &ndash; here we expect to see the system default language, but you can override that setting, which will remain on future startups until you change again.</p>
<p>The <strong>Theme</strong> will be whatever your main system theme is when none is selected, but otherwise your choices depend on your operating system or desktop environment and its available themes (if any). You can also change the size of the font used in the user interface. The various other settings are straightforward, and experimentation will be your guide.</p>

<h4>Story Editor</h4>

<p>The <strong>Page Size</strong> section should be easily understandable, with a large selection of standard sizes to choose from, in addition to <em>Custom</em>.</p>
<h4>Layout</h4>
<p><img src="images/prefs_documentsetup_tab2.png" align="center"></p>
<p>The <strong>Page Layout</strong> choices have been reduced, so that now, one only has a choice of Single Page and Facing Pages. <em>Facing Pages</em> would typically be chosen for a book-like layout, and thus the First Page selector at the bottom allows the initial page to be Right or Left. This helps you use the appropriate <a href="pagetemplate1.html">Master Page</a> layout.</p>
<table width="90%"><tr><td width="275"><img src="images/prefs_document1.png" width="250"><p>Here is an example of Facing Pages, Right Page as the first (also happens to be two-column). If you print these on a local printer, they will print as individual pages.</td></tr></table>
<p>The <strong>Page Layout</strong> choices have been the source of confusion for some. These simply apply to the relative placement of pages on your screen, and each will have the size as indicated, not some subdivision of it. <em>Double Sided</em> would typically be chosen for a book-like layout, and thus the First Page selector at the bottom allows the initial page to be Right or Left. This helps you use the appropriate <a href="pagetemplate1.html">Master Page</a> layout.</p>
<table width="90%"><tr><td width="275"><img src="images/prefs_document1.png" width="250"><p>Here is an example of Double Sided, Right Page as the first (also happens to be two-column). If you print these on a local printer, they will print as individual pages.</td></tr></table>
<h4>Margins & Bleeds</h4>
<p><img src="images/prefs_documentsetup_tab3.png" align="center"></p>
<p><strong>Preset Layouts</strong> will be available for anything other than Single Page layout. What these represent are some time-honored ways to set the margins of the page, many based on some mathematical approach related to the dimensions of the page. Below we see the contrast of these various methods &ndash; these are all right pages of a double-sided layout.</p>

<p>Remember that the settings here simply change the default values for PDF Export. You can still override any settings with the PDF Export dialog. For more info on PDF look at <a href="pdfexport1.html">PDF Export Options</a> and <a href="pdfx3.html">PDF/X-3 and Scribus</a>.</p>

<h3><a name="24"></a>Scripter</h3>
<p>If the <a href="scripter1.html">Scripter plug-in</a> is activated at startup, you will not need to make any changes here to use the included Python scripts.</p>
<p>Scripter Extensions are special Scripter module or scripts which are loaded at startup to modify the abilities of the Python Scripter plug-in within Scribus. Details are <a href="scripter-extensions.html">here</a>. The Console tab is for choosing syntax highlighting colors within the Scripter Console.</p>
