Google Fonts (via skyfonts) not available in GIMP
#1
I'm using GIMP 2.8.22 on Windows 10.0.16299. I used skyfont to install several fonts on my system. They're available in libreoffice and other programs, but aren't available in GIMP. How do I get GIMP to recognize these fonts?

Thank you!

Surprising, since normally Gimp will use the system-installed fonts.

But you can always find your Gimp profile, and drop the TTF/OTF files in the fonts subdirectory and restart Gimp.

I think it has something to do with how skyfont shares the fonts, but I don't know.

Copying the new fonts into the profile worked - thank you for your time!!

Didn't know this, thanks!
