Text effects
A while ago I found a really easy way to make text effects - like fire text etc. It was from a drop down menu and was something like "create logo". I can't find it now though. Can anyone point me in the right direction. Cheers Fiona

RE: Text effects
Was it File -> Create -> Logo?

RE: Text effects
Brilliant, that's it. Thanks. I'd created a normal file and then was looking for it in tools. There are loads of videos giving really complicated ways to do stuff which can be done in a couple of clicks using this functionality. Thanks for saving me a shedful of time. F

RE: Text effects
Argg, trying to add an effect using this and the system is telling me it can't run two scrips and I'm already running one..... but where. Sorry, I'm very new to Gimp, don't know my way around at all and I must have set a script somehow when I was looking for the logo. Cheers F

RE: Text effects
So, how do I turn off a script once it's on. Closing the file and coming out of gimp altogether hasn't done it Confused

RE: Text effects
So, I'm getting this error "Script-Fu cannot process two scripts at the same time.

You are already running the "Glowing Hot" script."

Having just closed down gimp (every window I can see) and started it up again.

RE: Text effects
Are you using M$ Windows?

As ofnuts says, probably hidden behind the main Gimp window or the dialog has been moved off screen.

You should be able to see what is running from the icons in the taskbar. AFAIK click on one to bring it to the front or better still, right-click and close it.
