The file->open feature for PDF is confusing. It's supposed to create a
new Scribus document and import the file, but it currently doesn't seem
to work for many people.
More importantly, it won't do what you want. It can't edit a PDF in the
style of Adobe Acrobat; rather, it's the same as converting to EPS and
importing as vectors.
If you want to fill form fields in existing PDFs, I think some other
tools have been discussed here for that. Check the archives.
