I'm running Gimp 2.0.4 on Linux and I've got an image with some colored text loaded and I want to create a new image with different text with the same color. So, here is what I do:

1. Load the image with the colored text
2. Use the color chooser tool to choose the color of the text
3. Create a new image with black background
4. Choose the text tool

At this point, the color I chose using the color chooser tool has changed to black.

5. I repeat step #2 above
6. I repeat step #4 above

Now, I'm stuck in a manual "loop". :) So, I figured once I choose the color of the text using the color chooser, I can double click the box with the current foreground color to open the "Change Foreground Color" box and leave it open. Then I choose the text tool and drag the color from the "Change Foreground Color" dialog to the color box in the text tool and now I can create the new text with the desired color.

Is there an easier way of doing this?

Thanks in advance!
