Freetype plug-in

Hey,

Okay, I've installed the freetype plug-in for Gimp (1.2.3). And it shows up in the plugin details list...

But how do I use it? Nothing seems to have changed. What does this plug-in do? Is it something I can access?

I was told this was a good plug-in for text, but I'm not seeing any way to use it, and certainly no instructions. :-/

Can someone explain exactly how to put this plug-in to use?

While I'm at it, I'm noticing none of my True-type fonts are showing up at all in the text tool. And I've got quite a few installed. I'm running KDE 3.1beta and the TT fonts are available in KDE programs as well as OpenOffice. Is there something I need to do to get them accessible in a GTK program? I have Gnome2 installed, but never use it.

Thanks, Joe

Move rendered output where you want it to be on the image. It creates a seperate layer for each render.

Aha, there it is! Freetype is the only plug-in I've installed that doesn't come with the SuSE Gimp package. Man, that thing hides well. ;-)

And now I have access to my TT fonts as well. Wooo-hooo!

Thanks, Joe
