Thanks everyone for your patience and support.

in your screenshot you just selected the circle, not the text field. you need to select both items.

utnik

edit: …and if you're working with the linked .svg file, you should replace the values with a real text field. otherwise there's no text to be aligned anyway. (those numbers are just polygons – no text so far…)

That seems to be the issue in trying to select both.  If I hold down the control key while clicking on circle, I lose the text field. Dosen't seem to hold both?

I just posted those as visual examples. Wasn't sure what format would be visible here when I did.

Ah, the package installs both the otf and t1 versions of the font. From looking at the Font Preview window, it appears that Scribus is choosing to use the t1 version. If otf is better supported, is there a way that I can force Scribus to use that version instead of t1 (without removing the file, since it's managed by the package)?

            x              (x)                    Ok what version of gtk, and it is time to send us an example of a document that you are having trouble with. either the one that is gibing you the issue, or you can make a sample document for us to examine.

Jammy (22.04) : gtk+3.0 package (3.24)

This is the tutorial I'm trying to follow https://thenewstack.io/off-shelf-hacker-draw-analog-gauges-graphics-program/
Attached screen shots of where I get stuck. (You can see where the buttons are not available)

The thing that I am trying to create is a printable speedometer faceplate that is in both Mph and Kph to replace the one that I have.
I was using "blocklayer" and made a few versions, but was limited in individual number sizes.

Any other menu items not working?  and are you using a gnome version of ubuntu? I'm thinking this is issue with the differences between gtk and kde versions

As far as I can tell, just some of the "item\ Path tools\ ..."

Yes, using Gnome version with GTK.  If so, :-(  Hoping that it's something else that I am just missing.

            x              (x)                    Have you renamed your old .scribus file and let scribus rebuild the configuration file and see if that is the issue?

Yes, sorry, replied to that above. May have been missed.
