The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

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.
