RE: Gimp text editor broken (crashes)
first thing, remain calm. What was the last thing you did when the text editor was working?

With your gimp open, you can try using the editor window of the text editor.

Click Text the text tool, then under "Toolbox options" check on:

[]use editor

Try typing your text in that window. Does it still crash?

You can try to reset your gimp profile.
If that doesn't work, check your ram, hard drive free space, then maybe uninstall, reinstall gimp or update to 2.8.8 if possible or downgrade to 2.6.

Please reply to this after trying all the above, if you want/need further help MR
