I too have found the text tool hard to deal with in GIMP. You really can't do anything else on the same layer you create a text box. let alone create more than one text box.

Basically one has to put a text box to a layer.

Hi,

I just tested and every time you use te text tool it could happen the
following:

 * If you click on an existing text you will edit that text
 * If you click outside any text layer a new /text layer /will be
   created where you can add your text.

The text layers are special because you can edit the text later on,
unless you apply any filter that can convert it to a image layer.

If you want to create a text just in top of another text you can either
create it in other place and then move it where you want to or you can
hide the layer and then put the new text where you want (you can hide
the layer with the icon of the /eye/ in the layers control)

Create a new document and play a little with the text tool, that will
give you an idea of how it works, its quite intuitive.

BR,

Mikel

I am trying to add new text to a document, but every time I add a new layer and
try to write the text, it jumps to the text layer that is already in the

I can't find any info on this issue anywhere. Hoping someone can help. Thanks
so much!

I should mention that I am new to GIMP.
