Bob, I had trouble finding it too.  In Scribus 1.4.3, if you have the 
*PDF Tools* toolbar enabled (under *Windows* on the main Scribus menu), 
you will have the buttons they talk about in Method B.  Screenshot here: 

However, as you can see, the hover tooltip doesn't say "Insert PDF 
fields", it says "Push Button" instead.  But the rest of the 
instructions seem to match what you get when you click that option.

I've never actually used Method B, so I can't vouch for it.  I use 
Method A.  It's not ideal.  You have to change the appearance of the 
underlying text in a separate operation to make it look like a link, but 
it does work.

Hope that helps,
