    Can't draw line in Gimp.

    Using on Mac. After loading new screen. I can't draw a line.
    Screen shows pencil but no line.

    If I draw a square, I can bucket fill but can't draw a line.

    If I press shift to draw straight lIne, a cross appears but line is invisible.

    Change pen colour?

    Sorry if that appears to be an obvious answer but you don't tell us anything about your experience so I'm shooting in the dark here.

    Re: Can't draw line in Gimp.

    Hi Aj. Thanks for the reply. Tried changing pen colour,but that makes no difference. Open new screen and press ok for template. Click on pencil. and an arrow pears, but no line when I draw. If I press shift, to draw straight line, a cross appears and a line but no line is drawn on the screen. When I draw a rectangle, I can fill it with colour or a pattern. but no pencil line.

    Re: Can't draw line in Gimp.

    To try out your current configuration for gimp, make sure all gimp windows are shutdown, rename the hidden .gimp-2.8 folder in your home as .gimp-2.8backup and restart gimp.

    Try drawing a line now; does it work? If so your old config was corrupt in some way, if it still does not work I am not sure what else to suggest except for purging gimp and then reinstalling to see if the whole installation was corrupt in some way.

    Double-click the pencil icon to see its properties sheet. How big is the pencil point? If you enlarge its size, does the line appear?

    Hi Aj, tried that but still no sign of a line. Have reloaded Gimp from their site, but still no joy. Maybe I should try different program.
