Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If you want to define default fonts and colors for, say for the default paragraph style, go to Format-->Styles-->Catalogue. Select the paragraph style to modify, you can set the default font and default color. If you just want to change some text in your document, simply highligh then right click-->character, then change the color to what you want. If I missed what you wanted, reply back.
Apparently Scribus is something like PageMaker. I wouldn't know, as I don't really like PageMaker and have never used it or Scribus much. From the little I've seen, it's much uglier looking then Adobe software, but it seems to be essentially a similar thing.
You need to right click on the toolbar and do customize. There you will find the Font Color. There is 2 different ones. Just add it and you will be able to change the font color on the fly. Look through the options, you will find all the settings you want to add to the toolbar for quick access.
mbegovic, yes Scribus is a lot like PageMaker. I have it installed and use to use it a lot. But, after using open office DRAW, I don't use Scribus much. DRAW will do everything I did in Page Maker. Everyone is different so Lleb_KCir, try Scribus and Draw and see which one works the best for you.
No problem. I had the same thing when I started moving over to linux. Don't get me wrong there is still things i have to use windows for, but I use Linux about 99% of the time. Scribus is good, but Draw was the program that I really stuck with for doing Newsletters and things like that.
