Actually the problem even occurs whilst I am working on a Master Page. Say I'm creating a colored
box, with a text box on top of that. If in the middle of entering dimensions into the various
fields of the properties palette, I inadvertently click anywhere within the Scribus window
(except the properties palette), the selection box with the 'handles' disappears and I can no
longer edit anything.
Any suggestions welcome.
