where is the krita text tool?

Sun Apr 12, 2009 6:52 pm
Love all the changes on Krita. Nice work!

One thing I can't figure out is where to find the text tool. Its icon is not present in my "Tools" toolbar, and I have looked at every icon carefully.

I've installed Koffice2 from OpenSUSE YaST2. I've only installed koffice2 base, Krita, Karbon, Kword and kchart.

Everything else works fine.

Any idea why I can't get that to show?

The version of Krita says: "2.0 Beta7". Is this the correct version, or did the opensuse pull an older version?

Thanks for any input.

2.0 beta7 is an old version, 2.0 rc1 is the current one :)

text in krita2 is a shape, you can find it in the "add shape" docker, i believe is in a tab somewhere at the right, or you have to add it from the menu settings -> dockers

there are two different text shapes, one is the "text shape" and the other is "artistic text shape"

You rock. I got really busy over the past month, sorry for not having replied earlier.

I also decided to wipe out my openSUSE desktops, and I installed Kubuntu on VirtualBox on my WinXP laptop instead (amazing results). So I just gave Krita 2 RC1 another shot...

...You were right on!! it's in a right docker, within the shapes.

I would say that it's not the most obvious spot for it to be, but as long as it's there, I am happy.

Thanks a million

@marrydavidson101 sounds like you are using Krita 1.6 ? Could it be simply a problem of selecting a visible color ?

For anyone else wondering about how to create and edit text in Krita, there's a short video tutorial at:

I've found the Add shape -> Text and added the shape and resized it. No problems with that.

But I can't find the "Text Tool" in the Tools Docker.

I'm using both Krita 2.1.2 (in Kubuntu Lucid) and Krita 2.3.3 (in Kubuntu Natty).

I watched the tutorial video and that guy has a Text Tool but I don't!

Ok, I finally got the answer from the KOffice Tutorials for Artistic Text Shape (at http://userbase.kde.org/KOffice/Tutoria ... Text_Shape ).

It says to double-click on the newly created Artistic Text (or Text) shape and that will bring up the Text Tool options.

I wouldn't have guessed that in a million years. (I haven't double-clicked anything since I stopped using Windows many years ago.)
