I will answer from the user?s point of view. Scribus is normally capable 
of handling text editing directly in a text frame with very good 
performance provided the amount of text is small (ie. a few paragraphs 
or less). When things get heavier, it is *highly* recommended to use the 
Story Editor. You may also find useful to work in a text editor or word 
processor prior to import your text into Scribus for layout. Also, 
please note that correcting typos in a large text will be a *slow*
