GIMP Fonts
Can someone please tell me where I can download some GIMP fonts that are compatible with 2.8. I did find a site some time back but the fonts that I downloaded caused a problem with my Text selection dialogue box (see earlier thread). I would like to download some "Heavier" type fonts than are currently available. Many Thanks Gary

RE: GIMP Fonts
Anything ttf will be compatible, unfortunately no way of knowing which ones will cause problems. Put them into .\gimp-2.8\fonts one at a time and see.

Resources
Just the usual I am afraid, if you do a search for heavy or bold you get a few hits and usually have to steer around the 'pay-for' fonts. Otherwise, trawl through what is available

http://en.fontreactor.com/search/bold?search_for=all
a few here

http://www.dafont.com/search.php?q=heavy
turns up only 12 fonts

some strange ones here but worth a look.

Hopefully someone will come up with some alternatives.
