[Gimp-user] Gimp freezing on path tabs

I'm converting some text to paths. Has no problem performing the
function (although when I initially click on the paths tab, I have to
wait several minutes for it to stop spinning the color wheel and show
the tab with the new layer), but when I try to make the new layer path
visible, I get the spinning wheel of death and the application stops
responding. Please help.

Guessing your computer has run out of resources.

That font Amatic Bold is described as "simple but effective hand drawn".

Looks to have about 8 times as many nodes as a regular font-to-path. see

From your screenshot the text looks fairly dense. You could try creating a line
at a time then merge the individual paths.

A better solution might be not-gimp. Use a vector application such as Inkscape.
