1) double clicking on the Text Tool button will give you a dialog that allows you to choose Dynamic Text. the default text tool is terrible, imo. this might not fix the font problems though. 2) there is another text plug-in located here http://freetype.gimp.org/gimp-freetype-0.2.tar.gz seems to get around several font problems. good luck! carol _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
