necessary to say "There is always a reason. Not Gimp, blame the User.". I am new
to Gimp and I had a question. There is no need to talk down to me.

Certainly not talking down to you. Remember in the future, when you come across
the same **this-does-not-work** and it will happen. Could be using Gimp, could
be Photoshop.. or anything.
Always suspect yourself first. I have used since Gimp 2.2 (2004) and seen most
