What do you need to do? I need to insert some text in a drawing How would you like to do it? I would like to have a Text Tool, which would allow inserting some text onto the drawing.

I hope this feature won't increase the startup time of the app with the need to find/load fonts from the system.

I would also like this feature.

Vegeta897: It wouldn't necessarily be a problem if the fonts are only loaded as needed.

Just using Gimp as a reference: I don't think the fonts are actually "loaded" on startup, but they do have to be "discovered" to generate the list of fonts to choose from, and that does take a few seconds, more if there are newly installed fonts.

Then again, MS Paint has a text tool and that loads instantly.

I think a list of fonts could be built in a background thread when the text tool is used/selected by first time (the most common case is that the user will not use the text tool). This list could be cached and when the text tool is used again in other session, the cached list is loaded while a background thread search for new fonts.

Sounds logical. I just wanted to express my love of lightning fast software load times.

A partial implementation will be available for the next release. It's not an interactive tool, but we'll be able to insert text (T key as shortcut):

Just for reference, there are plans to convert the Edit > Insert Text into a real interactive tool, where you select a box (which will be the bounding box for a text paragraph) and you can start writing text with the keyboard, and the context bar show the font options (font family, font size, etc.)
