    Default Gimp text

    How do I get it to let me journal! The text box opens, but nothing appears, I went to their help tab, but I still can't get it to work. Please Help!

    I don't use GIMP, but text layers drive me crazy sometimes.

    Here's how I do it in PSE (probably all crazy, but works for me!):
    • Find a kind of empty space on your layout and click there (after you have selected the text option)
    • Begin typing
    • As long as you didn't click where you have an element or a paper, you should be able to see the text.
    If you can't see your text it may be that it is behind another layer. If this happens, I:
    • Look over to where all of my layers are displayed (for me at the bottom right)
    • Your papers/elements will have a file name, but your text layer will just be named whatever you were typing.
    • You will need to "bring text to front"
    But sometimes you can't get to the text unless you move the paper/element that is in front of it. Which means you may have to change back to the hand tool to be able to "grab" those things to move them.

    Also, I can't bring my text to the front until I am out of text mode.

    Well, no idea if that made sense, but hope it helps!

    Can't wait to see what you come up with.

    See new post, I got it too work, the font size was in (insert not nice word here) pixels instead of point, so I couldn't see it! But I figured it out!
