Unfortunately it is not that simple. For a quick compare/contrast, on my GIMP (2.8.4, Windows XP Pro) the "Fonts" folders listed in my GIMP preferences are: C:\Documents and Settings\User\.gimp-2.8\fonts C:\Program Files\GIMP 2.8\share\gimp\2.0\fonts The first folder is empty. The second folder doesn't even exist. And yet I can use pretty much all the fonts on my OS (including one I generated myself via FontForge). So it sounds like the problem with your GIMP is that it (for some reason) isn't actually detecting the fonts installed on your system -- typically those in the C:\Windows\Fonts directory. -- Stratadrake strata_ran...@hotmail.com -------------------- Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
