GIMP stopped to work
My GIMP stopped working, like it frozen. Anyone can advise, how can I fix it?
I figured out that tool box is not responding after I tried to flip image. This is Windows 8, and GIMP usually was working fine until I started to use tools I did not use before.

RE: GIMP stopped to work
What tools cause it to freeze?

What were you doing before it froze?

Can you click the layers in the layers window or select another tool when it freezes?

Do you have any selections active?
Select > None

Just trying to narrow down issues...

GIMP is doing weird thing for me sometimes and this was one of those. Finally tool box became responsive after I opened it in saved gimp files. As I mentioned it stopped to work after I used flip tool trying to convert image into mirror reflection. I probably did something inconsistent with layers, brushes, etc., acting erratically because I did not know what I am doing. May be someone can help with hint what should I do to flip not just element but the whole picture?

Thank you very much for your response and helping out.
