RE: Talk bubbles
you can also hold shift while using the circle creator to keep adding circles to the selection and then right click>edit>stroke selection when youre done, if you are like myself and hate that damn paths tool. you can use the rectangle and the circles in the same selection as well.

- Create ellipse/rectangle/rounded rectangle selection
- Select/To path
- Edit path with Path editor
- Add three points to the path (Ctrl-Click *3)
- Drag the middle one
- Ctrl-Shift-click the inward tangent handles on the two corner points to remove them.
- Adjust the tangent handles on the dragged point
- Stroke the path

Thanks for your reply.
I tried it unsuccessfully. Can you please assist me further?
I created a New Image. Then using rectangle tool, I created a rectangle inside the image.
I don't know how/where to "edit path with path Editor".
I tried Paths Tool, Tried to add three points, shift-clicked the inner-most points, selected stoke path, but no color filled in.
I don't understand how to add three points, I guess, or how to stroke a color.
Thanks again for any additional help.

RE: Talk bubbles
Thanks for the info.
I've tried it again, but can't seem to make a square talk bubble.
Here is the image of it. It seems when I drag the point down it makes the curve down too. Any additional help will be appreciated.
