From the main menu, select "Windows" then "Dockable Dialogs" then pick whatever you want to open. Or else "Windows" then "Recently Closed Docks" if you haven't done much with other windows since you closed them.

How to import a word text into gimp ?

It is impossible to import a word document file into GIMP, but it is possible to COPY the text in the document and PASTE it onto a text layer in GIMP. This, unfortunately, destroys the formatting (for instant, tabbed spaces are removed for paragraph beginnings.)

Please contact me at if you have any other questions regarding text layers in GIMP.

Hi, I can't drag and drop an image in gimp

You cannot drag and drop an image into another in the Gimp. Open Both images in Gimp then, Select > All on the image you want to copy and click Edit > Copy. Move the destination image and click Edit > paste and it will add it as a new layer. From there you can name the layer and anchor it.

I am simply trying select half an image and flip it so that I end up with a symmetrical image. However Gimp keeps closing itself out every time when I reach the point of pasting into a new layer the half...

How big is the file? Have you got plenty of hard disk space? If its a huge file, it could be simply struggling and it may solve it to shrink it down.... Or if you have stacks of layers, lose some/flatten/merge some and try again.
If not, sometimes there is glitches in running Gimp on a Mac.... It could be this is simply a bug...but I would have thought they'd ironed out the creases by now....
Might be best just to do the operation but slightly differently? For instance, copying the layer into a new document ... if it is a bug, a small variation in the process may avoid it.
