Why does only some letters become effected
I am using Gimp in danish, so excuse if I am not using the right words.

I am using text on a picture and for some weird reason, when I am using the tool to mark up the letters so that the look nice, only some of the letters are effected. I don' t understand it. I have done this before, and this never happened to me before.


I am on debian wheezy, with a standard install.


thanks.

RE: Why does only some letters become effected
Hallo thanks for the answer. That would actually save my sanity. I am using Gimp 2.8.2

RE: Why does only some letters become effected
So it was the bug I was effected with. Can I ask in this thread if there is any good tutorials of how to upgrade Gimp if one is running debian stable?

The Gimp 'truncate text bug' affect text-to-path and text-along-path & might/might not have some effect on regular text.

Debian Wheezy is very conservative and as far as I know is still on Gimp 2.8.2 (but might be updated)

You might need to enable the Debian 'Testing' repos to get Gimp 2.8.6

Look for the 3 packages: gimp, gimp-data, libgimp2.0

Maybe try the 'buntu ppa, make a backup of your system first, could well be dependency issues.
