You can save any text created in Scribus as plain text, either by using File >

You will lose all formatting, though.

In general, it's a much better idea to write and spellcheck your text _before_ 
you insert it into Scribus. Scribus is layout program, no word processor or 
text editor.

1.3.5 might be shipped with a spell checker. The code is written, but it still 
needs some polish.
