Help! text is stretched and can't make it normal
I don't know what I did, but now when I open a text box and type in,
the text looks stretched out sideways.
Closing the file and closing GIMP doesn't help.
When I open a pic and try to put text on it, it is still stretched.
Huh

Well, after deleting the gimp folder and letting gimp replace it,
I still had the same problem. So I tried opening a different file,
and the problem was gone for that file.
Then I reloaded the original problem-file, copied and pasted the picture to the other file as a layer.
Then I was able to write normal letters on top of the picture.
I still don't know what happened, or why I needed to do that....
