However, it can't be clicked on to bring it forward.

I've yet to see a proper document ready to be worked with.

When I'm back in the office I can do some screenshots for you if you'd like.
Some people have seen this: I did once but fixed it in some way I now forget. One trick is to delete (or better, rename) the "invisible" scribus13.rc file in your user root directory. This file holds all your preferences, including, I think, window size and location.

If you have access and inclination to IRC, I suggest tuning into #scribus on IRC freenode.net. Andreas Vox ("avox"), who did the Mac port, is there all the time and can deal with more specificity.

It's worth the effort.
