Re: [Gimp-developer] Gimp Texttool Native Language

Well, would you tell what you mean by "you must type  红房子" and then,
select a font with support for this character set"?

You can see in the image that I selected a font and selected "use
selected font".

Does this not imply that if my keyboard is inputting a specific series
of 2-byte characters, Gimp should display those characters? In other
words, if the keyboard is mapped to specific character set, should it
not be displaying those characters?

So, it's not obvious to me. :(

Here is a screenshot.

Is there something I am missing?

Forgive me if I tell you anything is obvious to you, but I see you typed
"This is a text" so, "This is a text" is what Gimp shows.

If you want to type anything in other language, I think you must type " 红房子"
and then, select a font with support for this chararacter set.

In other words, the language is not defined by the typefont itself, the
typefont could have or not support for one language or other, but the
language is defined for the words you type.

I Repeat: May be I'm wrong and I'm tell you something that you know yet,
then forgive me. But I think you typed "This is a text" on english, so,
maybe this message could help you.

Tell me if this helps you or I'm telling nonsense things! ;)
