hi,
i created one text-layer with: image->filter->render->freetype2. after some time i want edit the text. but the layer can not be edited only a new one will created. of course i've selected the right layer and right-clicked on it but the plugin shows only the settings of the last created text-layer!

i use freetype2 with gimp 1.2.3 in windows 2000

No, there is no way with freetype. You can use the gdyntext filter if you have it, that one allows editing. For gimp 1.4 there is hope that the good rendering of freetype is mixed with the edit capabilities of gdyntext, but for the moment, nothing yet.
