[Text field] doesn't work
« on: April 08, 2015, 12:58:39 pm »

I have a question regarding text fields. I have created few text fields, set frames and backgrounds, however after exporting to PDF it doesn't work - I can't write anything, I can't see frames and background color. When I highlight existing fields it shows me my text fields, however it doesn't work at all. I also downloaded from site with tutorial existing template, exported to PDF and text fields also doesn't work.

Scribus 1.4.5
Windows 8
I installed few times.
I have new ghostscript.

Thanks in advance,

What PDF viewer are you using?

I think that's the most important information needed.

Ghostscript isn't involved in this process so that information is irrelevant.
