font scrolling

Is it just me, when you can't recall the font name and you keep scrolling trying to find it, and you scroll so much you forget what you are looking for? Happens more often than I should admit :) I'm trying to think of ways I can organize to make it easier, but wind up making lists of other lists to put in more list, see where i'm headed :lol:

My suggestion is include the font name in the xcf title, also as Issabella previously suggested, do 'save as' your xcf at the very start of your project. I identify with your 'font wrestling' 😃

Add the fonts dock: menu Windows -> Dockable Dialogues -> Fonts

Click on the little left pointing arrow

Select Fonts menu then Render Fonts map

Unselect any filter in the Filter(regex) box

Click on OK and get a seriously long image showing the fonts you have installed.

Sometimes when a Gimp xcf file is opened, the font is no longer there. Maybe comes from another computer or if a resources manager is used, the font has been disabled.

Ofnuts has utility, text-info.py about 19 down here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-to ... s/scripts/ which will give all the details. Then it is off to dig out that missing font ;)

Same here Tin :D , I hadn't really thought of adding the font name, maybe in the name of the file when I save it, thanks RJKD. Rich I appreciate the tips along with the photos, helps a lot!!

I'm glad I am not the only one having trouble remembering fonts. Thought it was my age!
