Re: [Gimp-user] Let's discuss about the text tool

I use the text tool a lot myself and have just come to work around most the annoyances. I realize that it's 
a tricky situation as there are a ton of variables to consider as well as multiple workflows. I am just 
chiming in to agree wholeheartedly with #4.

I recreate logos and have to match fonts to text in an image. In doing so I am constantly zooming in to get 
the kerning correct which puts the floating box with the kerning adjustment out of view. I have to zoom out 
to make an adjustment and back in to check it. This can get painful after a while. Of course I wish the 
floating panel would "float" within the viewport, but I'd be just as happy to have the adjustment available 
in the tool panel if that's the only way to get it to work.

Baseline and any other controls that are exclusive to the floating panel should be available in the tool 
panel if the floating panel cannot be kept in view at all times.

I think it is unreasonable to expect gimp to be a full blown font editor. 

Why not try your corrections in say Scribus?
