Static text box adjacent to an animated GIF
I have noticed that there are images online that combine an animated GIF with a static text box. When I load one of these and watch it play from Filters/animation/Playback I notice that there is a button labeled 'Detach' I presume that there must be a way to create that static text box. Can anyone help me achieve that please?

Thank you for your kind assistance.

Just out of curiosity... what does the handle ofnuts mean imply?

Thank you for the Mirror script you wrote for the GIMP program… it is brilliant… exactly what I needed.

Among the many animated GIFs upon which I have attempted to use your mirror script there have been many that came out clean and perfect. However, during playback of the mirrored layers, some layers have exhibited multiple artifacts of the previous layer(s).For example, a dark object moving across a light background leaves a trail of dark dots behind the receding edge. Likewise this occurs for a light object traveling across a dark background, leaving light dots behind. These seem to occur, primarily, when I have used your excellent script on GIFs that show layers (in the layers window) with a gray checkerboard overlay. It seems to occur only in mirrored layers and then only when the mirrored layer has the gray checkerboard. overlay
If you know of a method to mitigate these artifacts I would greatly appreciate your advice as to how to do so.
