Paste text into Gimp from another app (SOLVED)

Post#1 by RJKD » 24 Oct 2016, 19:06


I can only find instructions for Mac, I use Win7. I want to copy text from MsWord and paste into Gimp doc. I can't figure out how to do it, can it be done?

Just copy it (Ctrl-C from MsWord or wherever).
Then in Gimp select the Text Tool, select an area on your canvas, and Ctrl-V to paste the text in there.
Is that what you mean?

I use Windows and MS Office 2007:
Go to your windows document and highlight, copy the the text.
Go to your GIMP document and make a text box.
Place curson inside text box and right click-paste.
Adjust size and other parameters for your text as usual.
