Do you mean this? A couple of screenshots for you

The top one: Make your text, Put the text to a path. You can do this in different locations. The layers menu (shown) or right click in the text dialog on the canvas or right click in the text later in the layers dialog.

The bottom one: Stroke the path. This is best done on a new layer, but if you want to outline the text it can go on the text layer.
The black outline is a new layer, I moved the path for this or the red around the blue is straight into the text layer.
