GIMP: Font Directory

I want to add fonts to GIMP Portable 2.8.14 on Windows portableapps, not to Windows to use them on any PC.
1- Is there a Directory already planned for this in GIMP portableapps?
2 - In GIMP: Edit> Preferences> Folders> Fonts, you can point font folders. How to Write a relative path (relative to the path and letter of changing drive where GIMP is depending on the PC)?

thank you

The best thing to do is add them to the Platform so that GIMP can use them as well as all your other apps:


You can also add them only for GIMP Portable here:


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

GIMP Font Directory

Here is the solution:
It is better to install a single directory containing all relevant font in all applications. So "PortableApps \ \ Data \ Fonts" from John T. Haller.
It must then go to preferences : "Edit> Preferences> Folders> Fonts" and specify a RELATVE path in GIMP.
"..\..\..\..\..\Data\Fonts" (without the quotes) ... It works.
Or if you want to place the fonts in a GIMP directory. For example "GIMPPortable \ Data \ gimp \ fonts". The RELATIVE path is :
"..\..\..\Data\.gimp\fonts" (without the quotes) ... It works.
