Are you sick of fools who assume you have to be perfect to use their oh so sacred app?
 
My name is Alan and I want to learn how to use Scribus. The other Scribus community of G+ is run by a bigoted ass who hasn't the foggiest idea of what he's talking about.

Scribus for Dummies is for people who do know what they're talking about, and how to explain it.

This is an experiment, I’m checking a number of option WX allows to see what it looks like. If I like what I get I’ll get doing it with a number of documents later on just to see what they look like. There is nothing wrong with your browser, I promise.

Purpose [css_columns] I’m doing this for two purposes. One is to see if I can set the text into columns. The other is to start a new series, under the title “Mythus”. This should be then extended—in a way—under a second series since I have two series…

I have learned that the Scribus print layout program uses XML for layout. I also understand that HTML 5 was developed to take the place of XML. Can HTML 5 be used for what Scribus uses XML for?

I wonder, can you name a system that allows for easy scaling of characters from the small to the large?

Now most systems are set at the human scale; though some such as Cats, Bunnies and Burrows, Mouse Guard, and Michtim are set to handle much smaller animals. But can you think of any that allow you to adjust things so that one could play a dragon for example, and have such as humans fit in comfortably with the drakes.

In all honesty, I have no idea. I use Pathfinder for that type of setting, even trope reversals of it.
