GIMP: How to edit a font file?

Someone on another forum said you could edit font files, like copy and paste images into the layers.

How do you do this?
I tried opening gimpportable but couldn't find how...

I dont think

you can do that but I found a Link where people on the GIMP forums talk about the same problem...
Maybe it helps.

Unfortunately, not possible

The big problem is, in general fonts are vector graphics
whilst GIMP is a raster graphics editor

It might be possible in Inkscape
But it's definitely not possible to create a truetype font in GIMP

If I were you, i'd look into the possibility that Inkscape might be able to do it Smile
