Custom Font Layers With Fixed Margins: Version 0.03 for Gimp 2.10

This version offers more choice in the selection of which groups of characters to convert to custom font layers. It also provides options to create custom font layers from unicode characters. Download and install to your user plug-ins folder. Create a new layer and access from Filters>>Custom Font Tools>>Custom Font Layers With Fixed Margins

The script started life out as an attempt to make it easier to add kerning data to custom fonts by forcing the left and right margins to set sizes. While I was at it I thought I might as well allow the user to specify which groups of characters to create from an existing font. Since I was also in need of some stars for another little project I decided to include options to add batches of unicode character layers.

The filter dialog:

The forced margin size options.
Set the ‘Font size’ option and the ‘Height of scaled font’ option to the same size to avoid scaling issues.

Highlighted in yellow:
The character group selection options.
MareroQ requested that Polish accented characters be included; follow the option menu to include non-English characters.

Highlighted in orange:
The unicode character options.
Groups of unicode characters can be created by typing in a keyword for the ‘Add some unicode symbols’ options. The keywords can be viewed with the ‘Display keywords’ option.

Those who wish to use unicode characters as normal layers may want to ‘Crop unicode layers’ and set the ‘Rename unicode layers’ to ‘Yes’; the filter will then use the unicode description, where available, or apply a generic title to the layer. Copy and paste the layer/s you require and apply other filters as required.

I am busy checking my other filters, to see which need updating to work with unicode symbols.

Think this is related to the version of Gimp you may be using GJL. (If only there was a smiley for weeping buckets of tears to insert.)

I cannot use 2.10.14 to 2.10.18 from gimp.org until they fix the problem. :hammer_head:

I use Gimp 2.10.12 as a rule on my desktop with Windows 10 Home Ed together with SamJ's portable version of Gimp 2.10.18. Both work perfectly for me.
