This bot is the same as Highway Route Marker Bot (talk · contribs); however, that bot has gone inactive and there is still a need for its services.

This bot can edit text in SVG images, to output a sequence of similar images. It then converts the fonts used in the SVG to a path, thereby removing any necessary font support issues. Finally the bot uploads the image to Commons along with a custom description.

This bot is very useful for creating highway route markers, which would otherwise be a tedious task. This bot fully supports the Roadgeek series of highway sign fonts.


  • An SVG template
  • Must use free / open source fonts, e.g. Roadgeek
  • Must provide text that has not been converted to outline
