GIMP: Diffrent fonts?

I've been using portable gimp to do my photo editing for a while now, and I've always wondered if there was a way to either add or change the fonts available in the text option?

I've tried downloading fonts into my windows font folder, but no luck. also, I've tried to find a font folder in the gimp folders to see if its a way to add more fonts to the program, no luck either.

If anybody knows a way, please fill me in.

Please & thank you

I think it uses the Windows installed fonts by default. And it *should* work with the upcoming portable fonts feature in the platform, but I haven't tested it yet.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

it does work with the

it does work with the portable fonts program now avaiable (forget the link here - just do a search here. I'm feeling lazy today). this is what I use when I carry a copy of GIMP on a flash drive.

I have also stored a bunch of ttf's in a directory on my HD and I point my local copy of portable GIMP to that dir (just ADD the location in your GIMP prefs). works fine.
