Can't find line tool?
Okay so I managed to install the latest version of GIMP again and I know GIMP had a line tool (even a curved one). I'm not sure if on my old computer I had a different version but I know it was there, and now it's not. Any help?

Or Tools>Paths

Or "B"

If not in the Toolbox, check Edit>Preferences>Toolbox and make sure it is marked as visible.

Thanks for the tip but that isn't what I'm looking for. When I last had used GIMP the program had an actual line tool and not a path tool. It's hard to explain but the icon looked actually like a line or curve (depending on which your using). It didn't look like that

I don't know if they removed it or what, but it never looked like that.

Really? Weird. I'm afraid I can't recall what version I had, but I know it didn't look like the icon you put up on the last post.

The line tool is used for of course making lines. For instance if you find a base on DeviantART (look it up and you'll see what I mean) and you want to make the hair or clothes easily you would use the line tool. Basically it just makes straight lines for you. On the other hand if you want to be a bit more in depth, the curved tool (which is like the line one) would be used to make curves in your art like for the clothes or hair too.

Probably. Well thanks anyway for trying to help Smile
