Text Tool - No Centering option?

hey,

I'm new to using GIMP and love it so far...

I can't seem to figure out how to center several lines of text within the same text box. I've had to add a spaces before each line of text and center every line by eyeballing it... And sometimes it is easier to seperate the text box into several text boxes and line them up by eyeballing them (though I do know there is a "object centering tool". I used it a couple times but it seemed really difficult... I know GIMP is not a word processesor but cetnering text doesn't seem to be that hard of a task to ask for in a text tool...
Thanks.

Happily GIMPing,
D. Brian Weese

Rendering the text centrally is an option found in the tool options dialog for the text tool.

Look in the Tool Options dialog while typing the text - there are justification options there...
