Hello, I create adverts with Gimp for my magazine
www.sardegnaannunci.com <http://www.sardegnaannunci.com> .
A feature that I need would be to create border around text.
I reach this target with multiple shade effects or selecing the text
using selection by color, then selection->border and the filling it
with color on a second level under the text (if I do this in the same
level I loose antialias on the text).
Better method for a very clean result: create a "Path" for the text
(right click on text layer, + "Text to path"), then "Edit/Stroke path"
with a sufficiently wide line.
The problem is that when I want to change the text I have to delete
the levels for this, edit the text and then create the effect again.
Isn't possible to add a feature or a plugin with wich I can edit the
text and the effect together? Or better, a real editor with border an
Like the one there's on Libre Office.
Not right now, but there is an underlying structure change in Gimp that
will make this built-in in the future (it's easy to do in LO because the
set of possible transforms is limited).
