Figures, beat to the punch. I am 70% done with a Web-font to SpriteFont converter, written in Construct2.

However mine does allow for adjusting widths of each character, putting the results in a text box you can copy to the proper events.
Should I keep working on it?

Give me a couple of days to see how far I get. My next step was to auto-calculate placement/sizing-values. I've been reluctant to jump on this as there seems to various threads on how the plugin should be using some of the 'standards' out there for spritefonts, which would make my tool irrelevant.

Edit: Actually I've already got it auto-positioning and sizing. Just need to build the character-width strings/values.blackhornet2013-07-30 08:15:18

Actually, it's your tool that makes changing the plugin irrelevant.


Edit: If it helps, my width routine wasn't automatic, you select one or more letters, and change the width, which moves a red line next to each letter. One exported it was meant you would load the transparent PNG into an editor for embellishment, resized smaller and save.
Back in my editor it asks what size the final image would be saved at, and recalculated the "copy and paste" widths to match.

(Not that much of that part was done yet.) Paradox2013-07-30 21:47:33

Can you also do Height Adjust greater than -100? I found that for some reason Cambria Math Font create a massive gap between lines and -100 wasn't enough to bring it to a normal amount.
