I've been using instantOS (https://instantos.io) for the past 2 or 3 weeks and so far it's been a really enjoyable experience. Definitely recommend it if someone is looking to try a new distro.
Using Scribus for my workflow is starting to become really annoying. I feel like every project I use it for I bump into a new bug which often requires an annoyingly large workaround. The Affinity package is starting look pretty nice but I also don't really like working in Windows which puts me in quite the pickle.
Any #Scribus experts here that can tell me why capital letters with diacritics (especially the ´ ) adds a linebreak for no reason? is there any way to avoid this that does not involve reducing the text size by a lot or increasing the baseline grid spacing by a lot?
I think it's kind of funny I have a backup/archive of all the projects I've done in the past 6 or 7 years which seems to be the norm except that in those years my workflow and choice of software has changed so much that I am unable to open/use any of the files.Not that I really need to use them for anything

I found a 1985 vintage Daisy Wheel #printer recently. It's basically an electric typewriter (sans keyboard) with a serial port. I have no docs but it seems to have similar guts to an old Atari printer which has PDFs floating around. It's enough that I have sorted out how to print all characters, and tweak the vertical and horizontal pitch.
