I am trying to use Scribus on Ubuntu 10.04.1. I downloaded it from the software centre. I am used to Publisher and have watched the tutorial vidoes and everything is clear. However when I drawer a text box and click on the "Edit contents of Frame" icon I can only type in numbers. Text will NOT type which is rather a big problem !!!! I can get text in other ways but would rather it all worked properly.

Is this a known bug or is it the an operator brain fade?

Clicked on this post because I had the same problem and saw it was solved, but there was no answer.

Fix: Choose a different font. Some fonts have only numbers available. The default font when I first started scribus had only numbers available.
