So, for example to change back to regular speech I would change the font name to Wild Words, size to 14 px, and the line spacing to +1.8. It would be nice to instead just select a menu option, say maybe Filters/Manga/Regular Speech and have all of those set for me at once. The only Script-Fu procedure I could find for any global font options was "gimp-context-set-font" which will set the active font for subsequent operations.
There are gimp-text-layer-set-** procedures for all font options, but they only act on the current text layer and do not affect the text control toolbox settings, which is what I want. How would I go about implementing scripting procedures that would be equivalent to gimp-context-set-font-size, gimp-context-set-line-spacing, etc. if they existed?
Well it seems I posted too quickly. After exploring the Tool Options Menu activated by clicking the little button at the top right of the Tool Options dialog, I found my answer. It seems that the functionality I was looking for is already built into the GIMP. It is possible to save, re-save, rename, or delete sets of selected options. Now I can save all my different font settings into presets!
Sorry for the noise.
