In 2.8 the "text-laing-path" button has been removed from the Text tool options, but there is still a "Text-along-path" menu entry (right click on the text layer in the layers list: one of the entries with a big A, with "Discard text information" and "Text to path")

If you are talking about my text-along-path plugin(*), you are correct that in Gimp 2.8 it doesn't work from the right-click menu of the Layers list, but you can still use it to layout text against a path by accessing it from the "Path" list (right-click on the path to be used as a guide).

(*) the one at http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-pat...y/download

oh dear God thank you finally a straight forward answer thank you and ur right i noticed they were all 2.6 i was like wtf omg ugh thanks
