Bug Description

No text can be entered for a .svg title created in OpenShot. A background color can be chosen, and the title file appears in the 'Project Files' list with the appropriate color background, but right-clicking on the file, and selecting 'Edit Title (Simple)' from the contextual menu results in a blank 'Enter Title Text' window. There are no lines on this window to enter text into.

Also, clicking on 'Edit Title (Inkscape)' has no effect (Inkscape does not open), though I do have Inkscape installed.

Hum i am not sure that a bug. When you open the title 2D, you have only two buttons activated. (i.e. choose a template and create a new title). After you have the window of the creation of the Title, after the title and only after you have an access at the button of the colors and for the Advanced Editor (i.e. Inkscape).
If it is really a bug, could you launch Openshot in a console, re-done the same operation and put it the output of the terminal. Thanks.

CLARIFICATION: This only seems to be a problem when a solid-color background template is chosen (that has no text lines on it). When a template with text lines is chosen, this does not seem to be a problem.

summary: - Cannot Edit Title
+ Cannot Edit Title with Solid Background

Could you open an terminal and open Openshot in. Repeat the same operations and report us the result of the output.
What is your distribution ? and the version of Openshot that you used ?

Bug fixed. Patch attached!
I couldn't reproduce the bug that did not open Inkscape, so this patch only fixes the edit text window issue.
