Its still the same. I have installed of Kubuntu to try and reset
whatever is causing the problem, as it was felt it was not a Scribus issue.
But, bizarrely the problems, mentioned above, ie not being able to
delete with backspace key the previous line in the Story Editor, etc,
etc dont manifest themselves in 1.3.4 only in 126.96.36.199
So what is different in 1.3.4 than 188.8.131.52?
No-one came back to me with any ideas with what
'QDom: saving invalid character , the document will not be
well-formed', on the cmd line several times.
means - its this a clue to the problem?
I have also completely deleted the .scribus folder again, to try and
allow scribus to rewrite its config's, but again no change.
I'm still desperate for a fix, but its not an easy one to tie down. Even
trying this with a new doc still gives exactly the same errors.
Please any help, gratefully recd.
