Text tool

A few notes, maybe known, maybe not:

a) Is there a way to put use text other than "gimp" with the text tool yet? :)
b) xtns->script-fu->web page->alien glow->arrow goes into a tight loop sucking cpu
c) file->save as->png is pretty hit and miss with success, half the time you need to "Ignore" merging visible layers (only one layer) in order to save as a PNG. i haven't tried other formats really d) tool panel, the eraser has the same tooltip as the paint fuzzy strokes brush

e) gimp is really looking sweet, thank you for the hard work

Hi,

your notes are obviously about the current developers version. For production use, you really want to use gimp-1.2.3.

no, not yet.

b) xtns->script-fu->web page->alien glow->arrow goes into a tight loop sucking cpu

most probably because of the hackish text tool implementation and PDB bindings.

c) file->save as->png is pretty hit and miss with success, half the time you need to "Ignore" merging visible layers (only one layer) in order to save as a PNG. i haven't tried other formats really

this is supposed to work. Could you describe the problems in more detail.

d) tool panel, the eraser has the same tooltip as the paint fuzzy strokes brush

fixed in CVS a while ago.

Salut, Sven
