Custom Font Tools - The Guide Part 3

Post#1 by skinnyhouse » 21 Apr 2019, 05:38


Custom Font Layer Utilities:

This tool mainly provides a set of utilities for working with character layers in order to speed up the process of creating custom fonts rather than altering the appearance of the characters.

Most of the options are self-explanatory.

The option to create a set of lower-case letters does require an additional path (base_line.png) to be first added to the custom font.

This tool provides the options for writing text along a path using both normal and custom fonts.

It provides a number of options for doing this:
Colouring normal fonts
Changing the size of text along the path
Altering the space between characters
Reversing text along the path
Repeating text along the path
Rotating characters

There are a series of five tutorials for Version 0.02 of FontSlab that cover these options and are still relevant to the latest version of this plug-in. Search gimplearn.net for FontSlab Version 0.02 for Gimp 2.10 Tutorial.

Below: An image from the tutorial series that illustrates the FontSlab effects applied to a range of custom fonts.
