The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

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.
