I'm creating a CD panel + label design. I have a a color background layer, I use the text tool to create a text layer, add the text. Then since the text box with fonts is in the way of my view I open the move tool. Many times I have trouble getting the move tool to select the text and move it. It may select the background color or the whole template guide underneath. I usually then look and see if the text layer is selected over to the right. I try reselecting it.
If none of that works i go to the Selection tool and hit select all, select none and keep trying different combinations until I finally get the text to move. I run into this problem all the time with different panels I'm working with in this CD panel template. Some panels have a picture along with the text and color background. Either I'm doing something wrong or there may be a quirk in GIMP and I need the workaround. Or maybe I don't need the move tool if there is a way of moving the text box with fonts is in the way of my view when using the Text tool Thanks, -- GerryPeters (via www.gimpusers.com/forums) _______________________________________________ gimp-user-list mailing list List address: firstname.lastname@example.org List membership: https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user-list List archives: https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-user-list
