Bitmap font generator script
I have searched this forum but cannot find something related to my problem.

I found some Python script plugin witch generates "Bitmap font texture".
Here is a script.

The problem is when i generate it adds some offset on Y axis and its not starting from X=0, Y=0:
Plugin options:
[Image: pluginoptions.jpg]
Texture generated:
[Image: fontgenerated.jpg]

Text is cut off. By browsing this script i didn't find nothing that could add this offset except Gimp it self.
I need precise placement of each char/glyph. Any solutions?

RE: Bitmap font generator script
Thanks for answering.

Can you clear something to me please:
When i choose 16 as font "size", is that value in pixel units?
Is it precisely 16 when asked or it depends on font and chooses by it self the nearest size it have to 16?
If largest height of glyph is 16 pixels there should not be cutoff like in my image above 1520 x 16?
Can you tell me how can i obtain width of some glyph? Does "font" variable has some attrribute for "widest" glyph width?
I want each cell/box for a glyph to be:
char_begin = 32
char_end = 127
cell.w = widest_glyph.width
cell.h = largest_glyph.height
image_w = (char_end - char_begin) * cell.w
image_h = cell.h

Thanks for your time.
