renaming problem- layers
Totally new to gimp, so this is probably a dumb problem. I seem to be unable to rename either layers or images if they are being exported. When I use alphabet letters to rename a layer, for example, GIMP toggles through tools. It is using shortcuts to open different things? ..Clearly I have something checked or unchecked that will allow alphabetic renaming....where do I look ?

I am running Mavericks, but have Gimp 2.8.2.
If I remember correctly, this didn't always happen; at some point in the recent past I was able to rename images at least; suddenly now the only letter that doesn't cause a toggle through tools is 'y' ! weird.

RE: renaming problem- layers
OK you hit the nail on the head! Thank you so much. 2.8.10 has solved the problem.
I'm guessing, now , that it "used to work" before I went to Mavericks! duh.

really appreciate the help.
