having looked at the graphics, i would suggest you, to delete all the copies you have made, import again the ps file, recreate the table with scribus' own lines and rectangles, move the vectorized letters into the newly created table, group the whole thing. make multiple copies of it.

imported ps files may include complicated and not really used artifacts which will make the whole group much too complicated.

have fun
