[Scribus] Typing directly into a text box - speed.

As a newbie to Scribus (though not DTP or Linux) I'm beginning to make
inroads into using this DTP. Presently, I am trying to type some text
into a text box directly, without having prepared a text file from which
to import it. The process is extremely slow, about two characters per
second appearing in the box until the type-ahead buffer is empty.

This is so on three different machines, all of which have processors
over 1G and nothing elase (significant) active.

Must I import from a text file, do you think?

With regards,
Derek Harding
