    Hey, i accidently pulled down the measuring tape thing at the top of the Gimp and now it kinda froze everything on my computer except for my internet. I know that I can just shut down my system and log back on, but I really dont want to loose what Ive been working on...is there anyway to set it back to normal?

    I don't think there's a way to save it once it crashes, but if you can get a screenshot you can at least have something to work with.

    yeah like blade said, attempt a screen shot, but if not, your gonna have to restart, thats why its important to save frequently.

    Well, if it does crash again, let it sit there. When I say let it sit there, I mean completely leave the computer alone. Don't do anything on it. Sometimes the program will come back from its "tech coma" and sometimes it won't. Just hope for the best and you can recover your work.

    If you don't feel like waiting, then attempt the screenshot like bladesonic suggested. ^-^
