Working in Gimp, I frequently need to label different parts of a diagram with sequential numbers (say, 1 to 30 or so). Is there any tool in Gimp which can make this more efficient (ideally 1-click on each spot with a number)? Alternatively, is there any other software that can streamline this?

    Could you use another app instead? I'm sure there are many apps that can do that easier than Gimp... Though I can only remember one annotation app with this specific functionality: Snagit (Windows, Mac). It does come with a standalone editor if you don't have any need to capture the screen using it.

Check ofn-points-sequence.

Basically you create a path with the Path tool:
