I have text cutting out pieces (letters) from background layer using alpha to selection on the text and using that selection as mask for the background layer (like in this question how can i make alphabet like this from any image in GIMP?).
Is it possible to use the text layer as mask for another layer directly so that any changes are immediately reflected in the result?
Any other way to have the (modifiable) text as mask, perhaps some special mode of layer blending?
I am using Gimp 2.10.
