Yes, Martin's answer was very complete. We were able to add the text box

The advanced abiword activity is a reference implementation provided in the
examples folder of pyabiword (please have a look at the examples folder in
the attached pyabiword file).

"Enable menu selections" was a typo from my side. My apologies. Selecting an
option from the menu bar is very well implemented in this example.

We are trying to extend the write activity, and develop features on top of
it, so that it could be used for authoring school newspapers and magazines.
Template builder tool is an integral part of the activity.
