Using the Path and "Intelligent" Scissors Tools to remove text
Hi there,

I'm just getting the hang of GIMP and up and running on a project, until now. For some reason, I'm not able to get the kind of selections I want from using the Path and Scissors tools. Large pieces of the letters get cut off and its frustrating to say the least. I've heard about the edge logic problems and actually found out how to use the Path tool as a result. This still happens with Scissors after I've jacked the contrast all the way up, and its already in bw.

Now the obvious fix would be to just type what I'm wanting and go from there which should be simple. BUT, I'm not quite to the point where I can build it from scratch and the font is fairly specific.

Any ideas/methods you guys could suggest to help me remedy this problem?

Preliminary statement: I have little use for the scissors and I removed them from the toolbox palette Smile

This said, they work quite well, and if you don't like the segment they generate, you just click somewhere in the new segment to add another point and drag it, and the path will readjust. Maybe you expect too much from them? Can you post the picture or an extract?
