Cannot see text tool in GIMP 2.8.6
Very odd can't find text manipulation tool in 2.8.6

Got the Text box tool but nothing else available to add in the Dialogues. Image of my Gimp Page attached.

Just want to center the text in text box.

Thanks!

RE: Cannot see text tool in GIMP 2.8.6
Are you saying that, in the text layer you want to edit
and with the text tool enabled looking like this

when you click on the canvas in the text layer you do not get the text dialog.

like this

could be a big problem or are you waiting for some miracle to occur.

What you really need is the tool options dialog showing (or a complete overhaul of the interface)

Look at the Layers box and see if there's a "Tool Options" tab to the right of the layers tab. If not, you need the "Tool Options" menu. To bring that up, go to the Layers dialog, click the ("configure this tab") arrow at the top right, then Layers Menu, then Text Tool. Good luck!
