Text Along Paths
I am trying to place my text along a path. I have followed the guides but gimp only places half the text along the path. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I have selected the path, text is on dynamic. It's a curve path but the text only goes up one side and it it not the full text. I have change size of text font everything I can think off.

Please help cheers!

Otherwise I have a script that does essentially the same thing, but without the truncation bug and with much more control over the position of the text.

Cheers of nuts. Yep only had (2.8.3), upgrade worked a treat. One last thing now text is along the path how do I get it so it shows a a layer?
