Editing text
« on: July 22, 2018, 10:42:31 pm »
Hi, In the past, I have frequently edited text in Scribus, highlighting the text I'm wanting to edit, and making the necessary changes, using [properties].

I successfully edited text today in this doc, but now [properties] appears stuck on /COLORS, even when I highlight the text I want to alter.although I successfully highlight the text, the /TEXT part in [properties] stays greyed out.

Is there a way to correct this problem? Or am I stuck trying to recreate my document?

I found the answer myself, and since I can't delete this post (for some reason), I'll tell what I did: After highlighting the text I wanted to change, I clicked on the select tool (to the left of the text button), and THAT action let the /TEXT in [properties] become usable again!
