I've had this issue with pasting text from Acrobat Reader, but haven't
had time to properly investigate yet.

Try selecting the text in the source application then middle-clicking to
paste in Scribus, instead of using CTL-C and CTL-V . This sometimes
works more reliably.

Also try to paste into another app like kwrite and see if that works.
That, and the source application, would be very useful to know.
