The T layer
Is it possible to finish a project without a T layer. In other words, can it change depending on how it's used?

Thanks, guys!

RE: The T layer
Please clarify a bit Huh
do you mean the Text Tool?
"A" Text

If so, you can remove the text layer by merging it down to your other layer/s
or flatten the image (right-click a layer > flatten, Image > Flatten Image

You can do all these edits with the text layer before you merge or flatten it
(text along path, etc.)
http://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-tool-text.html

If you just want to change the text layer to a normal layer, right-click the text layer and click "Discard text information" when your done formatting it(size, color, spacing...).
