Text along path
Hi

I am having some trouble with Gimp. From reading various sites and tuturiols, its possible to curve a text, with the text along path feautre.

Ive made a path, and written a text. Problem is, that the so called option, text along path never shows at all. The button isnt there. There is no place to click in the toolbox, for that possibilty.

Im pretty sure its because Ive misssed some stupid step, but for some reason it just doesnt show.

Hope you can help a really green Newbie at this.

Thanks

RE: Text along path
Gimp help is a bit terse on this.
Right click in either the layer dialog or the text editing dialog.

remember it generates another path which you can/have to stroke or fill.
