Hi Tom,

I would prefer sending this to the list, so others can contribute to. But anyway: I really had the same problem: BS and DEL working, but no typing at all. What I did was: create a textbox, and get ready to type in it, then change the font of it to e.g. Arial (not the default font in the preferences, because your textbox has already been created with another font). This worked fine for me. Changing the default works if you open a new texbox after that (and maybe you need to close/restart scribus for this).
