Open Office Draw vs. Scribus

How do they compare and which is better/ easier to use/ more stable?

My experience with Scribus has been it's a bit of a pain. There seem to be a zillion places to set font size, each of which behaves differently to the next.

I agree that Scribus is overly complicated. I prefer Draw and inkscape to it. Depends on what you wanna do.
