Ok here’s the problem. I need to produce fast documents with images, and I want to control the layout of the images.

Word is a pain for this. So is Lyx. Obviously this is not a job for straight Latex. Neither is the restructured text I use for most of my day to day notes good for this either.

So, I’m giving Scribus a spin.

Macports compiles it just fine. Took about an hour or so, I think a fair chunk of that was compiling qt3. Hmm, qt3. Is the macports version an old one?

UPDATE: would you know, I gave up, and just used Powerpoint…
