Re: Custom Font Help?

Having issues with the Font-to-layers plug-in.

Seems that it's generating the letter and cutting them off.
Looks like the removed portion of each letter,
corresponds to the size of the space.png.

Thanks for your reply.

The Font-to-layers plug-in,
generates the space.png.
There doesn't seem to be a way to avoid this,
that I can see.

I sent a message to MareroQ ,
over at Gimp Chat.
He's the one who created this plug-in.
Perhaps he can tell me what's going on here.

I've used this plug-in before,
with the same installed version of Gimp.
This is the first time the letters have been cut off.

No problem.

The Break Apart by Alpha script,
is certainly a good alternitive way of getting a custom font made.
Which could be said to be another essential script to have,
for making custom fonts with Gimp.

Just a thought but did you try selecting 'Image/Fit Canvas to Layers' in case the image was not big enough to allow you to see all of the layer

Thanks for the suggestion Graechan.

I tried your suggestion and it didn't work.
The letters are still cut,
as in my previously posted image attachment.

Every layer seems to be cropped to the space.png's dimensions.

I think it may have something to do with the font WIDEAWAKEBLACK.ttf,
that I'm using.
Other fonts turn out alrignt,
ie. They are within the boundaries and don't get cut off.
see screenshot below.
