Laidout is desktop publishing software for Linux. It is designed especially for multipage, cut and folded booklets, with page sizes that don't even have to be rectangular.
Here are some key features of "Laidout":
· A splittable window system, reminiscent of Blender and the Ion window manager.
· You can dock, float, and move and temporarily maximize the panes of any main split window you have up.
· The window configuration is also loaded and saved with whatever document you are working on. The panes of each splittable window can be:
· Page view window, for working on objects within pages
· Spread editor, for rearranging the page order
· Palette Window
· Command prompt window
· Help window (very basic at the moment)
· A (non-functioning) button window
What's New in This Release:
· Introduction of a Paper Tiler interface for making big posters out of small papers.
· Also there is now a PDF, Scribus, and Image export that work with varying degrees of success.
· Laidout can basically handle multi-page documents that are meant to be cut and folded.
· The pages can contain images, gradients (radial, linear, and patches), EPS objects, and groups.
