Simple text box
I just need a square image with a letter on it. Here is what I have done:

1) File - new. 256x256. OK.
2) Click the 'A' button in the toolbox
3) Click 'Use Editor (since nothing seems to work)
4) Drag a rectangle onto my image.
5) Click on the editor
6) Type the letter 'x'

Guess what happens? Absolutely NOTHING! If I type other random letters, the editor disappears. What am I doing wrong? (and why is this so difficult?).

RE: Simple text box
Operating system? Gimp version? If you are using OSX might never work Wink
edit: Ofnuts knows more than me on that subject.

Nothing works is a sweeping statement.
In the following what does not work for you

Following your sequence of actions, an x, albeit small (default font is only 18)
works here
