font style
I just downloaded GIMP, so it must be the latest one. In the past I have had some experience with GIMP, but am having one problem with this one: Font style selected is no always that which I have chosen! It might be involved with ScriptFu but, if it is, I can't figure out what to do!

Appreciate any help.

For Windows the two legit sites are gimp-win.sourceforge.net and partha.com (there may be other legit sites, but the first is somewhat official, and the second has a very good track record).

In the latest version (2.8) the text font/color/style can be defined character by character in the on-canvas dialog, or for the whole text in the Tool options dialog. So which one are you using?

And what has Script-fu got to do with this?

Using 2.8 downloaded from GIMP. And I thot Script-fu was necessary to get the results you want from Text Fonts. I'm a newbit, really. All I know is that when I choose Aparuntik (probably don't remember the name right) it's SUPPOSED to look like Old English and Bold Italic.

It doesn't. Why not???

RE: font style
Yes, I realize that. I just select the font that is listed as 'bold' or 'italic' or both. But my prob is that the font I request is NOT what I get, not always that is.

RE: font style
Do you mean I'll have to DOWNLOAD each font I want?
