text tool options dialoge box doesn't open.

Postby mrid » Mon Mar 19, 2012 3:22 pm

I am just geeting started and for some reason the "text tool options dialoge box" never opens when I try to text. I have tried opening the "fonts" on dockable windows but nothing opens. I want to change the size of my text.

You have to use the "Tool Options" dialog box (In Gimp: Windows > Dockable dialogs > Tool Options)
This dialog will change depending on the tool you're currently using. When you select the Text tool for example, you can set spacing, size, font, color etc there.
Maybe that dialog is already opened somewhere, it looks like this: Image
Hope this helped.

I have to admit it would be nicer to be able to right click a text layer and change the attributes from a menu list.This could probably be possible if the text layer is never rasterized.
Something to bring up to the developers for Gimp-2.10.

Can't you give that idea to the Gimp brainstorm site?
