Gimp and the text tool

Postby 7gods1 » Tue May 13, 2008 12:17 am

Hello Everyone,

Has anyone had a problem with Gimp and the Text tool not working?
I select the text layer and try to use the text tool to resize the font or change the font and nothing happens.

Once in a blue moon it will work, but when I select a different tool and come back -- it will fail again.

Any help would be great. Gimp version 2.4.5.

I think I solved my own problem.
For some reason I have to select the text layer in the layer dialog and then use the text tool and click on the layer in the image.
Then I can change the font. Weird.
