Hello I have some question. Understand the script also national additional characters? 2. witch Font is best with most Charters to start build my own ? Can I use guilt lines for high, width, ascending letter and descender?

Everything is based on the individual layer's dimension if vectors are not defined.
If you don't define a vector with the same name as layer, layer's dimension will be used for character.
If you do define a horizontal vector with same name as layer, that vector will be used to for placing characters.
Then there's kerneling, where you define for example AW.png as a vector and that will be used to for placing A in front on W character.
as A and W are usually closer together than say AH.
so for AW.png vector you might make the horizontal vector narrower than A.png.
If you don't define kerneling, then it'll use horizontal vector defined for A.png or the layer's width if vector A.png is not defined.

You can try to define "Ö.png", "Ä.png", and "€.png". It should work as long as they're one character with ".png" at the end.
And I have no idea what "A.PnX" is. The script will only look for for ".png" ending.

Rod: Will there be a single site that has all the fonts for downloading? or does each person have them in a different place. Guess I am afraid of missing some!

For mine i prefer to use Sourceforge. I can watch downloads and other details about each file this way.

A few of Graechans fonts can be found there also. I believe the rest can be found here. Only 4-5 of us creating them right now. :)

I have read the 'how to' in previous posts but the terminology has gone over my head. I'm struggling to get the letter spacing (kerning?) to work, I post my xcf, if anyone could assist I'd be grateful.

Try "View>Snap to canvas edges" and snap each character in your font to the left canvas edge. Once you have them all snapped to the edge crop as closely around the entire group of characters as you can. Go to Layer>layer boundary and adjust the width of your "space.png" layer. Be sure you move that "space.png" layer all the way to the left also. That should get you pretty close. :)

Tran also wrote a filter for me to crop all layers and set those layer boundaries to the image height. You can find it on his Gimp Learn website i believe. Or search for it here in Gimp Scripts and Plug-ins forum board. This filter is handy for smaller characters containing small y,p, g, q, ect... as they set under the large capitol letters somewhat. Usually though i only do numbers and caps now. Much easier to create them. :bigthup

This custom font thread and the others where fonts are posted have lives of their own.
They won't die. :hehe

How are all of you doing this so fast? I read the instructions but it would still take me a long time.
