a question about drwaing circles!

i have a question, imaging im in terrible hurry to draw an empty circle around a text and go on for others, whats the fastest way???

something like this: http://up.vatandownload.com/images/vgv2kprqm8bckk6yfhy.jpg

i already know some ways, for example: using "Border" (in Select menu) or "Stroke Selection" (in Edit menu) i want the "fastest way", those two ways need too many delays.

my teacher read the book fast and i should draw as fast as him.

thank you all in advance

That sounds like sketching to me. Why not just use the brush or the pencil tool?

There is no faster way to do that in GIMP currently. You can set a shortcut to the menu command that activates selection stroking, but you still have to confirm stroking settings.

Alternatively, you could use Inkscape that has a nice text tool and easy drawing of geometric shapes.

It really depends on a few factors like whether the circles should be pretty or geometrically correct. If you only need those circles around text for yourself, brush/pencil could do the work.
