wena send me the file...

i can edit the text frames...

it's 100+ pages, probably one single set of linked frames.
if it's only one flow of text, please consider cutting it in several
scribus needs lot of memory and processor to handle long flows... my
computer has enough of them to somehow manage to get into edit mode and
change letters. but it's sluggish.
i can imagine that on slower computers you have the feeling that the
frames are locked :-)

and the last page is probably a separated frame, so it does not show
the problem!

have fun
