  • Drive Thru Rpg Savage Worlds SWAG Scribus Template

    I have managed to install Scribus, GhostScript, and the Savage Worlds SWAG Template available on Drive Thru RPG. I have navigated the 1.4.7 - 1.5.4 Scribus strait, and come out on the other side.

    I have a concept for a one shot and a setting, but am at a loss on how to actually use the template. When loaded, I appear unable to modify any of the current content of the template or add my own.

    Can anyone direct me to a useful source on how to use Scribus to create a new document using a pre-existing template?

    I have never used Scribus, but from what I have read, it seems that Scribus has limited support for importing IDML files from InDesign (better support for importing .ps and .eps files). I'd start with making sure you are importing the IDML file versus the INDD file. See if that gives you more control over what is imported. I have a suspicion this might be where the issues are occurring. If I get a chance, I'll try and throw scribus on and see what we can uncover.
