I spent 4 hours creating a document layout for a resume using Scribus. I'm new to Scribus, but I picked it up pretty easily through tutorials. I created two master pages (one for a first page, and one for all others) and when I was satisfied with the design, I saved it as a template. But, when I do "New From Template" it creates a document, but I am unable to edit the new document text. In fact, text frames are somewhat selectable, but not editable.
I can bring up the story editor and I can edit text in the attached master pages. But, I cannot edit text in the actual page itself!
This doesn't seem to be an issue with Story Editor like others have had. The main symptom is that -- even after I've closed the "Edit Master Pages" dialog, and then clicked on a regular page in the outline, "Edit Text" is grayed out in the Edit menu, and there is no way to access that option at all from right-clicking a text frame in my document.
I hope that helps clarify what I am experiencing. I've heard Scribus had some problems, but I've been impressed so far with what it can do. It's just this bug or whatever that is preventing me from going any further and I don't want to recreate everything from scratch. Isn't that what master pages and templates were supposed to help one avoid?
What am I doing wrong?
I'm not sure what information is needed to troubleshoot this further, but I can tell you my system:
- Windows 10 64-bit Home
- Scribus 1.4.7
Original question in case somebody edits it:
How to edit text in Scribus 1.4.7 after in new document created from template?
