[Scribus] Get Text in Scribus

My problem was a password protected file. Once I took out the
protection, it worked perfectly.

Subject: [Scribus] Get Text in Scribus
Open new document in Scribus.
Create a Text Area
Right Click in area
Select get text -> browse and select the document - > click open Nothing
Do the same with Append text, and nothing.
Am I doing something wrong? I have never tried this before, so I am
just trying to expand my knowledge a little.
What is the dot extension of your text file, if you have no dot ext then
Scribus won't insert it. I found it annoying at first but it is really a
safety precaution that should be observed.
If you have .txt or .sxw it should placce in the text box, however if
you have a text file with no extention it will not show up.
I ran into this problem some time ago so every text file I put in a text
box is now saved in the Story Editor as name_version.txt where name is
the name of the text and version is the latest change to the original
text file. for example Locations Of Events_2.txt I use plain text files
and no longer use external formatting, doing all formatting within
Works well for me.
