[Gimp-user] text tool chanes text properties when i paste over old text content

Thanks for the tip, at least i have that feature back with setting my gimp to Single Window Mode from Windows 
menu. But it made my workspace area smaller, i got used to work with floating window mode. 
I don't know if it is a bug but it is annoying.
Is this the official forum of gimp and where can i report a bug or request something about gimp, because the 
developer team do not seem to be around, or they have so  much work to do in their daily life...
Anyway, thanks for your help...


I don't know the sourcecode and therefore cannot be sure about this, but 
here's what I've concluded from observation:
Text in GIMP saves it's properties in two different places: One set of 
properties that is the standard for the entire text layer and then the 
modified parameters for every letter you change. Unfortunately, by using 
the floating menu you can only change the modified parameters, even if 
you have the entire text selected. So when you delete the entire text 
and start entering a new one (that's also what happens if you selected 
the entire text and start tipping), it uses the layer-wide standard 
To change those, you have to change them in the tool properties of the 
text tool instead of the floating menu.
Maybe it'd be worth a bug report if there isn't one, requesting to alter 
the layer-wide properties when the entire text is selected.

Hi, i switched gimp 2.6 to 2.8 and new text tool behaves strangely, as i remember in gimp 2.6 when i try 
to change text content with selecting old text and pasting new text i could use same text size and same 
font with my old text without doing anything but now in the gim 2.8 whenever i try to change content of a 
text layer i need to choose again font and text size from toolbox options, but why do i have to do this, i 
have a text placed on my image with a certain font and certain font size and i just want to alter my text 
conten not the size of text or font , it changes automatically to back text size and font whatever i used 
last  time in another work.

summary: i want to change my text content without setting my font and font size properties, i want to use 
my text layers old properties, please give the feature back...
