Gimp freezing on path tabs

I'm converting some text to paths. Has no problem performing the function (although when I initially click on the paths tab, I have to wait several minutes for it to stop spinning the color wheel and show the tab with the new layer), but when I try to make the new layer path visible, I get the spinning wheel of death and the application stops responding. Please help.

Guessing your computer has run out of resources.

That font Amatic Bold is described as "simple but effective hand drawn".

Looks to have about 8 times as many nodes as a regular font-to-path. see screenshot.

From your screenshot the text looks fairly dense. You could try creating a line at a time then merge the individual paths.

A better solution might be not-gimp. Use a vector application such as Inkscape.
