Hey, thanks for the reply.
i think it has something to do w/ the layer underneath being so big that
everywhere that i am clicking, GIMP thinks i want to change the current settings
in the text or something.
because if i click off of the canvas, then it lets me add new text.
apparently, it has something to do w/ the layer size. it seems like all of the
layers are 780x1280...
here is the link to the file i am editing...
i think i am going to just recreate everything in Inkscape, that program makes a
lot more sense in my mind than GIMP.
