Towards more automated creation of (single line) fonts
« on: July 25, 2013, 03:54:49 PM »
I've written an Inkscape extension and tutorial to automate the process of creating an svg-font in Inkscape. The process is based on cleversomeday's tutorial on creating a font in Inkscape. I've used it to create single line fonts, but it should work for normal outline fonts also. I hope it might be useful to some of you and that it might result in an inceased amount of single line fonts available out there ;)

I haven't had a chance to try the font generation extension yet, but I have tried the unclose path extension and I am very excited about the new capabilities this affords us.
For instance, you can purchase any of the OPF fonts from LetteringDelights.com, change the .OPF extension to .TTF, load it, type a phrase out with it in Inkscape, then run Ellen's extension to get beautifully designed true single line text for pen plotting or rhinestones. Woot!

Finally I found time to work with single line fonts again. I created my own single line font and would like to share it with you if you are interested. I created it with the technique described in the first post of this thread. You can download it from my blog.
