Change text size in all text layers
Hi,
I am creating a layered marine chart with reference points. I've imported the chart and am creating text layers with a reference number in them.

I have about 700 of these to add - a daunting task - but it's for a NZ coastguard unit, so is worthwhile.

The idea is to have a layer with all our reference points on it, so when a chart is updated, we can just import the chart; add back the reference points layers and print it out.
(Why? NZ baynames, danger spots etc usually have 2 names; an english name and a maori name - sometimes we have to cross reference when on the water to find the correct place).

2 questions:
Is creating text layers the best way of doing this?
Is there any way of increasing the size of all the text - instead of having to edit 700 text layers?

Cheers,
Ian

Sometimes at *the start* you have to ask yourself if Gimp is the best tool for the job.

In this case Inkscape does it so much easier. Background image (the map), text objects, select all, change text properies.
