Text Along Path option is missing
Hello out there,

I have recently installed Gimp 2.8.2, then reinstalled 2.8.4 because the Text Along Path option was missing from the Text Editor options. I was using this tool just fine in an older version so I knew the in's and out's of it then. Can someone tell me if I am missing something or if this is an issue?

As you can see from the attachment, I believe I have all the necessary items in place. In other words, I have a path, which shows in the path dialog. I have text that was created after the path. In the picture, the Text Editor is currently selected while the path is showing in the dialog but the Text Along Path option is missing.

Please help and thank you.

RE: Text Along Path option is missing
In gimp 2.8.x there are 3 ways to access text-along-a-path
In the layer menu
or a couple of right-click context options
right click in the on canvas text dialog
right click in the text layer in the layers dialog

a video overview of that might help
