I’d like to give this a try, but there are no steps provided to reproduce this.

I think I managed to get a CJK input method setup and I can see what is broken now.

The problem here is that our handling of inputMethodEvent ( in ScribusView::inputMethodEvent() is very primitive. It will be a bit of work to get this working correctly, and I don’t think I’ll be able to work on it.
