The pdf contains all the information to get you going so I will just let you get on with it yourself. Basically the plug-in uses character paths to generate custom font character layers.

Skinnyhouse, another wonderful useful tool to create new custom fonts. :gimp_clap: :gimp_clap: :gimp_clap: :yay_yay_purple:
Thank you so much.
I still practicing it but I can see there will be beautiful results.
Questions; to get a whole font with only paths of characters, which tool is the right one?
Why is it that in your samples you add the extensions "char" and no char in the whole fonts? is it no necessary?
I'm going to post the first custom font I have got with Custom Font Single Path Stroker v0.01 :yay_yay_purple:

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

Thanks RJ.

Issabella:
The single character letter paths work fine - the paths ending with char are ones that were initially made for the other path stroking filter - Custom Font Paths to Layers. The last version for that one was 0.03.

I'm afraid there is no utility for converting a font to a single path - it's got to be done by hand.

Looking forward to your results...

Issabella:

Just adding to the query about the naming convention for character paths.

It is quicker (i.e. less typing involved) to create single character path names and they work properly with Single Path Stroker.

If you want to make the resultant character path file also work with the earlier Custom Font Paths to Layers you will need to add the five character extension of a space character followed by char. This can be done very quickly with the option in my Custom Font Layer Utils plug-in. Just change the default label string.
