I think his problem is that exporting to Postscript converts the text
to outlines, hence it is no longer text. The same thing will happen if
he prints to a Postscript file (I think). I don't know about the
Windows PDF creator that he used, but it probably does the same thing.

I might suggest exporting to PDF with Scribus, then changing the file.
I've had good luck opening the Scribus PDF in Evince and then saving a
copy as a PDF. Another option is to do the same thing with Okular
(formerly Kpdf). There are a lot of other PDF creators that might solve
the problem as well.
