I am have huge problems in importing real editable text from any (e) ps 
file I create then import into Scribus.

Firstly is this possible? I would think so, but whatever I have tried 
only will import the text as polygons.

I really want to export some files from Coreldraw into a semi-editable 
format in Scribus, but although bitmaps and some vectors come through 
ok, text never has. I have tried various permutations of piping stuff 
through GSView with 8.53 GS but to no avail.

I have tried some really simple tests where I create a file with just 
text, and although GSView can export text correctly from it, and PDF 
export also keeps the text editable, these files as PS files will not 
import as real text in Scribus.

I'm using 1.33 full, both Windows and Linux versions, and 8.53 of
