Move Tool Not Working
I opened gimp today and for some reason the move tool will not work. I have attempted several different ways. When I select the move tool from the toolbox it comes up as transform path, but won't do that. Transform path still works. I am on a Mac running Maverick and using the Gimp 2.8.10...any ideas?

RE: Move Tool Not Working
Never used a Mac so I can not comment. But I will get the ball rolling.

What do you mean by transform? Does the move tool options look like this?

If it does, which option does it start on? Can you switch options? (sounds like you can not)

In edit -> Preferences -Tool Options is Save tool options on exit ticked or unticked?

Same place, have you tried Reset?

Thank you that was enough for me to figure it out...somehow the move option had been unticked and the line transform had been ticked. I don't know how that happened as I have never messed with that or adjusted it. I was able to bring up the tool options dialogue and click the appropriate one.

Thanks!

RE: Move Tool Not Working
open the tool option window and see if the "move current layer" or "select layer to move" option is active.
