Scribus is a premier desktop Open Source page layout program. Underneath a user-friendly interface, Scribus supports professional publishing features, such as CMYK colours, spot colours, ICC colour management and versatile PDF creation. Scribus has many unexpected touches, such as powerful vector drawing tools, support for a huge number of file types via import/export filters, emulation of colour blindness or the rendering of markup languages like LaTeX or Lilypond inside Scribus. The Scribus file format is XML-based and open. Unlike proprietary binary file formats, even damaged documents can be recovered with a simple text editor.
