Scribus is an Open Source program that brings professional page layout to your desktop with a combination of press-ready output and new approaches to page design. Underneath a modern and user-friendly interface, Scribus supports professional publishing features, such as color separations, CMYK and Spot Color support, ICC color management, and versatile PDF creation.

Scribus Portable works best with the PortableApps.com Platform
Add-On Note: Full functionality requires the addition of Ghostscript Portable.
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 color 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 - sometimes a challenging problem with other page layout programs. Scribus has been translated into more than 25 languages, and more are coming in the future.
The Scribus 1.5.x series of releases is designed to test upcoming features for Scribus stable. To help in testing, we package a portable version for users to test without impacting their standard local or portable Scribus install. This release will install in a ScribusPortableTest folder alongside your standard Scribus Portable install.
