Considering that Draw and Impress share a lot of code, this is probably a duplicate of bug 138855.

Do you have any input method engine like IBUS installed?  You may try stopping ibus or any input method related daemons as bug 138855 comment 3 suggested.

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
