Sorry, if my post was somewhat unclear. What I was
trying to say is, that in the context of The Gimp, 'gfig'
doesn't make any sense to me (partially due to the very
difficult handling). For those tasks programs like
Inkscape are much better suited (and much easier to
handle). So, it would seem logical to me to abandon 'gfig'
and concentrate more on important things like the text tool.
Since I'm not a programmer, I didn't know that the text
tool already *does* include the text in vector format.
What I had in mind is a tool where you can scale/rotate
etc. the text /before/ is is rendered as a bitmap. In Photoshop,
there are text fx available as well.
