Rainbow Rotating text as individual layers
Hi, last week I followed the tutorial linked below to successfully create cartoon text.

My Macbook was then updated to Lion and I checked I had the latest version of GIMP and have been trying all morning to create some more text in the same manner.

However no matter what I do when I select the layer that contains the single letter and I try to rotate it nothing happens?

If I do Alpha to Selection the selection rotates but then I cant do anything with it, stoke fill etc?

To clarify this is what I do:

Create a word
select a letter in the word
ctrl-x
ctrl-v
select new layer
name the new layer to match the letter just cut and pasted
ensure that layer is selected
choose rotate tool
....no rotation takes place?
