Furthermore, for really crisp results it is better to avoid appling 
gemoetry transforms to the text layer. It is luch better to generate a 
"path" frol the text ("Path from text" button), and apply the 
geometrical transforms to the path (all transform tools can be applied 
to paths), and once everything is in place to make a selection from the 
path and fill it.
