Diagonal fonts shapes and use in PSP
You can use them in PaintShop Pro in many ways. You can use them just as type / text via the text tool and simply add them via the keyboard (sadly there is no glyph feature so you will either have to remember which letters create which artwork or print off the supplied guide) such as A B C etc as you would with any other such as Verdana and Times New Roman. You can also turn them into a preset native format by right clicking the characters and select the convert command and you can then save the generated result to a vector file for use with the preset tool. If you do export the file, would recommend changing the names in the layer to unique names otherwise there will be a duplication error from PSP when you re-load them. You can also rasterize the vector and then use that as a source for PNG patterns as well as tubes by exporting the file as a PSP tube file.
Diagonal fonts shapes as displacement maps in Photoshop etc
You can use them as a resource for many different things such as brush strokes, patterns etc but you can also use them as a source for displacements. The key thing to create for the displacements is to save any created artwork as a PSD file. You can use the type in numerous ways such as use them once or perhaps multiple times or combine with other artwork, flatten the artwork via the layer menu and save that as a displacement PSD. You can create more complex distortions and displacements if you combine the type with filters such as the offset filter which can shift the tile origin. Apply an artwork and flatten and then use the offset filter (using 50% and 50% vertical setting) and then continue to add additional characters / artworks. Of course, if you are not concerned about creating a seamless tile, you can just add the type outside of the document but you will see the edge in any future distortion / displacement. Once you have the PSD file, go to the displace / glass distortion / texturizer etc filters in the Photoshop menu and then select the load / browse commands and select the generated PSD file. You can also use them in Affinity Photo as a displacement etc but in that case you will have to use them as PNG files and use them with the live filter / filter menu displace (there is no glass distortion filter or texturizer sadly)
Diagonal font shapes via text tool in Affinity Photo
You can add them using the artistic text tool and frame text tool. Set the correct typeface via the top bar and set the required size. Add the characters via the keyboard and change the color as you enter the text via the fill setting or use the show character panel (you can change the shear, scale etc as well). You can also convert the item to curves and then add fills and strokes as well as add layer effects such as 3D and bevel and gradients as well as add live effects and adjustments as well as gradient fills and patterns. You can also do much the same (other the live effects) in Affinity Designer. AD is a superb app but I would love to see more plugins / vector filters added to the tool in future. You can add other paths (as well as subtract etc) from the created characters
