Re: Custom Fonts for GIMP

Lovely font Issa - the blue makes it really special - and as usual an interesting font shape to complement.

Ella - agree with Issa that MareroQ's Font-to-Layers script will make life even easier for you in creating your fonts. In my last font I found that the letter j was clipped and also the copyright and registered trademark symbols were also clipped.

There is nothing in the script to make this happen - must be the original font and how it handles the left and/or right character margins. You just have to check the file with a sample output.

Have fun.

Thank you for the explanation, Skinnyhouse. Using the Font-to-Layers script I noticed the clipped letters.

What I wanted to ask is, when you make a text with the new created font in a new document, do you have to place each letter one by one. Or is there something you can just type your text with the keyboard and Gimp automatically uses the new font?
Sorry, but it's difficult to explain my question really well :oops:

BTW I've edited the space layer in my font.

Ella, go to filters, Text, Font to layers (you'll get each letter and symbols in a isolated layer) Have you installed the script I posted? if so, don't worry that each letter or symbol you chose previously will come quickly. Only check the letters I said before just in case they can be wrong cropped. Try it! :thumbsup:
Running the script you get all of the letters at the same level (no guides are needed) :D
Sorry, I understand now your request:
Yes, look for Custom Font Script, Tin created it to write your text by choosing the custom font created and it is really quick. You have them just in first post of this thread to download.
Also, there is another one Script-fu named Custom Font on Path. With it, you get the text following the path previously created in a canvas.
Go to resources and you will see them. Luck!

Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a new chance to rebuild what you want.

Thank you again for the explanation, Issa. The font-to-layers I'd already installed. Now searching for Tin's script and the custom font to path. And then find the time to practice. Also thanks for the screenshots, they help a lot. I don't now why, but the more I read about all this, the more confused I get :hammer_head: :oops:

Well, I believe I will make it... Just take my time :)

Wondered whether to create a topic for plain white custom font faces to share here on GL? Folk can sort out any issues with clipping, spacing etc before they upload (smaller file sizes) and save everybody doing exaclty the same thing on their own. What do you think? Any issues to consider?
