This version removes the angle toggle option for rotating characters; the character angle is now enabled by using any value other than zero.

A new option has been added to the filter dialog to fit user text to the active path in the image.

When set to ‘Yes’ this option will ignore any size step options, modifier and repeat values to simply fit the text along the given path.

It can be applied to both custom fonts and ordinary fonts within Gimp.

In the following examples the active path has been stroked in red.

A font called Alice used here.

And the same text and font - coloured from a gradient (originally donated by Wallace I think).

A shorter piece of text applied to the same path.
