Custom Font Paths to Layers for Gimp 2.10: Release 0.04

I have a number of tools for using paths with Custom Fonts but I find this one very useful for stroking character paths multiple times and with different brushes. This update adds an option to make the current brush track the direction of the path - a feature that should be possible with dynamics but doesn't seem to work when applied to path stroking in code. This option is based on the code illustrated by Tim (I have the link somewhere)

on GimpChat that uses a function from an Ofnuts plug-in.

At it's most basic level the filter can stroke character paths - link to resources thread here:

These settings...

Changing the settings to the ones below (without the tracking option) and selecting a ladybird brush...

produced this result:

The following settings, with the tracking option enabled, and setting the option to remove character paths if this will be the final version of the character...

... produced a better outcome:

And finally an example from a recent custom font that used four different leaf brushes with random dynamics (tracking option off) and then the ladybird brush (tracking option on) with slightly closer spacing.

Hi Skinnyhouse,

I just downloaded this 0.04 version and I'm already looking forward to checking it out!

Thanks for this great update!

Is there something wrong with my eyes, or is that a Ladybug not a ladybird?
