Summary0003118: Aqua interface does not accept or respond to keyboard input
DescriptionWhen the application is in the Macintosh(Aqua) interface theme, the GUI does not respond to or accept text input from the keyboard. It is most noticeable with text frames: when selected with the Edit Contents of Frame tool, the I-beam displays when the cursor is over the frame and can be placed, and text can be highlighted, but the interface refuses to place typed text. None shows up. It works in all other interfaces, and in the Aqua interface all dialog boxes (and the Story Editor) accept typed input, but this will not work in the layout display in the text frame.
TagsNo tags attached.

I just tried the newest version ( "Printemps"), which was apparently billed as the lastest snapshot. It was dated 27 March 2006, but still had the same build ID as beofre (C-C-T-F-A Mac/Aqua). The symptom persists.

I did not replace any of the frameworks. It is not clear if that is necessary.

I also have this bug. Two possible things might be contributing to it, I could suggest: one is a vast number of installed fonts and the other is use of a Wacom tablet. Just a thought.

No, this is a known issue caused by the properties palette getting the focus all the time.

As a workaround, enable textframe editing with the corresponding tool button or click
on Scribus' titlebar. This transfers the focus to the correct widget.

This is an issue with the QT/Mac <-> Scribus interplay and it comes and goes as development
processes. Current 1.3.4cvs works correctly at the moment.
