[Gimp-user] Can't edit text xcf copied to new file


I wanted to
reuse the season text layer over and over so saved it as a separate
xcf file hoping to copy it on each new poster .....

It worked great to copy it to a new file but I can't edit the text.
Gimp doesn't seem to recognize it as a text layer. The steps I took

1. I copied the xcf as a new layer in my new file then..

Am I doing something wrong or is it not possible to copy a text layer
that has been saved as an xcf to a new file and edit it?

Do not copy and paste.

You saved the file with text layer(s) as an xcf file. In the new file open that
xcf using File -> Open as Layers.


You can drag and drop the text layer from one image to another.

Click and drag the text layer from the layers dialogue to the tab of the
destination file. The focus (canvas) changes to that file. Do not let go of the
mouse, continue the drag into the canvas.
