Text Troubles
Hi, new user to GIMP. Trying to add text, but when I type - instead of the letters appearing in the text box, the shortcut keys are being used instead.

For example:

If I type "R", instead of "R" appearing, the Rectangle Select Tool is selected Rectselect

If I type "M", instead of "M" appearing, the Move Tool is selected Move

This has only started today, hasn't been a problem before now. Just wondering if I've accidentally turned on a feature?

That's great, thank you!

Also, just wondering - is there a simple way to hide or remove the default fonts within GIMP? Just display custom ones? Without actually removing the default fonts completely off my machine.

RE: Text Troubles
I have used Fontmatrix fonts manager in linux in the past. Nothing to do with Gimp, it moves the global fonts in-and-out of use, which of course is then picked up by Gimp.

A bit of a pita to tag groups of fonts. In the end gave up on it and reduced the system fonts to as small a number as possible. (still quite a few)

Used to use GURM to move fonts in and out of gimp/fonts, now I use a resources manager by someone called ofnuts..Wink
