Change Font

Hello gimp gurus,

I have files with many text layers. Is there a quick way to change the font name and font size?
I tried with

sed -i "s/Delicious SmallCaps, Medium/Latin Modern Roman Caps/g" file.xcf sed -i "s/font-size 18/font-size 15/g" file.xcf

but that corrupted the file. Thank you!

Without trying to edit Gimp image files, possible workarounds.

A plug-in changefont.py to change size/font in all text layers except those in a layer group https://github.com/akkana/gimp-plugins/blob/master/changefont.py

A (fixed) plug-in group_chfont_group.py only changes text layers in a group https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-Help-Plugin-killed-by-last-update?pid=2060#pid2060 Two plugins in the zip choose one of them.

A script to group/ungroup layers. http://chiselapp.com/user/saulgoode/repository/script-fu/wiki?name=sg-group-linked-layers

Need to apply as a batch? maybe the first will work.

try using python-fu from within gimp or gimp-console: https://www.gimp.org/docs/python/ . See https://github.com/shlomif/Freenode-programming-channel-FAQ/blob/master/FAQ_with_ToC__generated.md#i-want-to-learn-programming-which-language-should-i-start-with for some learning links.

but that corrupted the file. Thank you!
