Custom Path Characters

Post#1 by skinnyhouse » 19 Feb 2019, 07:49


Thought I would create a new thread to add these resources for use with Paths to Fonts:

Here is an Uncial style set of character paths:

Here are some paths created in Inkscape using Hershey Text. Then imported into Gimp as paths.

Thank you, Blighty. that is a great help. :thank_you:
I need your help. I did a font quite thin so that the paths weren't too thick after applied the brushes.
But I don't have the right path symbols as I don't have them on my keyboard. Would anybody be so kind to correct them for me? Thanks in advance.

Hi Issabella
I suspect you did a Text To Path which gave you paths like the one on the left in the image below. That will work, but what you actually need is a path like the one on the right.

Inkscape does not do centre-line tracing, so can't be used. I don't know of a utility that does centre-line tracing, maybe someone here can recommend one. That would produce something like I did for the Hershey Text and can be imported into Gimp as paths.

As for characters that are not on your key-board (like the heart) - just delete them in the paths dialogue.

Than you so much Blighty. Yes, it's just one of the problem but also when having the paths I can change to add
... char on most of the letters and symbols but not all of them because they aren't on my keyboard.
Thanks for your help.

Blighty, I have tried your Hershey Font, and the plug-in doesn't recognize the paths. Is it only me with the problem? Thanks.

I have just downloaded HersheyTextPaths1.xcf from post #5 above. For me it worked without problems.

Maybe someone else can give it a try and post here how it worked.
