RE: pop-up window when using text tool
No. But this window isn't just a display, it can also be used to change font, size, spacing and vertical alignment character by character.

RE: pop-up window when using text tool
You can also enable the classic text editor found in gimp 2.6? (& earlier)

Click on the []Use editor" checkbox

The editor does all the settings the pop-up does, except maybe live text preview (which you can still see while you type in the editor)

One plus is you can type part of the font name in the font name box & it will bring up the names of all the fonts that start with that letter.

Thanks for the replies...
I am a little saddened that I can't rid myself of that annoying box, but I think if I am the only one that complained about it, perhaps I should just shut my mouth.Blush
Again thanks for setting me straight.

You aren't the only one and the devs are aware of this, so they may come up with a solution in future releases.
