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

It's unreasonable to use gimp to recreate a logo of maybe two to three words? I certainly don't need a full 
blown text editor for that and would look elsewhere when I do. Not sure if you read my reply, but I only 
spoke about an existing feature that is unusable in certain situations such as being zoomed in while trying 
to get an alignment correct. Unless this is by design for some reason, I would think this would be considered 
a bug or an incomplete feature. I just wanted to bring light to it as others have in the hopes that a 
solution might be found.

I will continue to work around the problem as I always have. I wasn't bitching or complaining about it, only 
adding another voice to let the devs know this isn't just an edge case problem and effects more than just the 
OP. Feedback is usually the path progress which was my goal.

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?
