That's really easy enough. Now I feel extra stupid, thanks *grins*

However, the combo boxes don't seem to behave as I am used to.
Usually, in a combo box, you are allowed to edit the value if you want
to enter something that's not in the values. That does not seem to
work in the combo boxes created by scribus. Am I still doing something
wrong here?
