Question Missing Arial Narrow font
Greetings!

I use GIMP 2.8.0 on Windows 7.
For some strange reason Text Tool doesn't have Arial Narrow font in its list.

How can I use this font?

Thank you in advance for the clear reply.

I put the font files in the Gimp profile (see attached screenshot).
However no results so far.

Maybe it's because of 64-bit Windows 7?

It's not a Gimp thing because this is also how my Linux font utility shows them.

Are you sure?
I copied Arial Narrow from Windows Fonts directly to Gimp Profile (see attached video).
