you don't need to ungroup the table to edit the content of the cells.

depending on the version, just double click on the cell or
alt-double-click on it.

in many cases, it's better to avoid using the tables tool in scribus.
as you already found out, it needs more work to be a ready for
as an alternative you can use tabulators or import the table as a
vector drawing / bitmap.
