Re: Custom fonts into characters paths layers?

Been a while since I used FontForge myself. Sounds like you are going to be very busy for some time to come.

Re: Custom fonts into characters paths layers?

I believe that I will spend a few days entertained with this activity.
I have already downloaded and installed the plug-in. On the first attempt there was an error, but ok.
I will go over the error message in the plugin topic.

Thanks Tim!

He hasn't posted anything since November 29, 2018. At the time, I only had about 4 or 5 months of subscribing to this forum.
But I haven't been able to see even 25% of what he has exposed here on the forum.

Re: Custom fonts into characters paths layers?

How I wish I had one K. Life would be so much easier... post #32 from this thread: https://gimplearn.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2115&hilit=Trace&start=30 Tom used the Trace plugin (is it bundled with Inkscape?) to create centre lines that could be stroked with the path tool.

Custom fonts into characters paths layers?

Hi, Is there a plug-in that makes custom fonts into characters paths layers? I know that among the tools of skinnyhouse 's Custom Fonts Tool there is the Custom fonts paths to layers v 0.03 plug-in, which does the reverse.

Re: installing GMIC

Version 2.10.24 of Gimp has many bugs.
Both script-fu and G'MIC are just some of the problems caused by this version.

I suggest using Gimp version 2.10.22

Re: Help centering text in Gimp

Hello, I must not be understanding something, and possibly it is a simple question, but is there an easy way to natively center text in a text box vertically? I am not talking about left or right justification, nor am I talking about the alignment tool to align the whole bounding box, I am talking ...
