Using text tool to import a paragraph??
The Text Tool is active.

I have copied and pasted a paragraph into the tool.


How do I end the Text Tool process and save the paragraph?

Also, is it possible to import text with its font and size intact?

RE: Using text tool to import a paragraph??
Just switch to another tool, there is no explicit "save". You can edit the text/font/size/color later as long as the layer is displayed with a "T" icon in the Layers list. But geometric transforms make it lose its text status and transform it into a plain bitmap layer.

The "size" of text is all relative... you cannot even be sure that the characters will be laid out the same way (character spacing and kerning). If you want the guaranteed very same thing then take a screen capture of the text and import it in Gimp as a bitmap layer.
