    I'm new to Gimp and am have spent hours just trying to move some text.

    I created a rounded rectangle, filled with color and then added some text.

    The text is not in the center of my rectangle and I want to move it.

    How can I get this text to move?

    Any other program you would select it and move it. I've been on this for about 4 hours now just trying to move a text box.

    I already clicked on the "Move layers and selections tool" and then made sure the text layer was selected in the layer dialouge, but still not working.

    It sometimes moves an outline of my text, but not the entire thing.

    Please help

    All I need to do is move a text box.

    Thanks

    Carl

    I haven't used GIMP in a while, but this tutorial should answer your question as it discusses moving the text with the Move tool.

    If you want a free picture editor, I use Paint.NET.
