Scribus Template

This is my first ever  template made with Scribus. I took it from a magazine that I’m creating for Unity Linux and turned it into a template that others can use.

  1. thanks for sharing, could you tell me please HOW to actually insert the template into Scribus. I did it a long time ago, but do not remember 😦 Have been searching online for a long time…

    • These are the instructions to use for installing and using templates. Found this on th e internet:


      To install, simply download the .zip archives for the templates to your computer. Then extract it and open up the main document file, which ends in the .sla extensions. For the Swiss Modern template this is “Swiss-Modern.sla”, and for the Catalog Modern it is “Modern-Catalog.sla”.

      Once the file finishes loading, then select the “Save as Template” option from the “File” menu. Be sure to place a checkmark the “Include font” and “Include color profile” boxes. Then, type in the path to the Scribus user templates folder:


      After you enter the Scribus templates directory, press the “Save” button. This will launch an information dialog where you can enter details such as the template name, a description and any special usage instructions. Once you have added descriptions that rival the aesthetic perfection of the documents templates, press the “Ok” button.

      When you save a template into the Scribus Templates folder, it will copy the template file, photos, and fonts to the directory you specify. It will also add the template to the template gallery. Be sure to save these files into either the master template gallery, or to your users templates folder. If you do not, they won’t appear in the Template Gallery.
      Template Use

      Once you have downloaded and installed the templates, you can create a new document by clicking on the “New From Template” link in the “File” menu. When the template file first loads, it will provide you with several example pages that can be used in your layout. Simply delete the sample text/images and replace it with your own.

      To adjust the appearance of a particular block of text, you can apply character and paragraph styles from the “Text” Section of the “Properties” dialog. To modify the appearance of a whole page, you can make use of the “Apply Master Page” option under the “Page” menu.

  2. Thanks for every other wonderful post. Where else may anybody get that kind of info in such an ideal means of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am at the look for such info.
