I'm preparing a textbook; mostly text, with some illustrations, and I'm considering Scribus. Does anyone have any suggestions on using Scribus for book-length material, or know where can I find appropriate templates?
Scribus is a high quality desktop publishing program, you are going in the right direction by choosing Scribus over any other open source solution or regular word processor. if you want to find resources like templates and scripts go to http://scribusstuff.org
Hope this help!
