Re: Webpage Shield

It seems that when I try to widen the point somewhat I really lose the shape at the bottom I realize this is an old post, but I looked at your SVG and came up with this idea: 1. Duplicate 2. CTRL+Drag a corner to make it somewhat larger. 3. CTRL+Drag that bottom node at the point to make it longer/...

Re: Clipboard Issues with Inkscape under windows...

You need to make sure that the 2 inkscape windows are from the same instance. So once you have inkscape open, open all the rest of the files you want by using the open dialog, not by double clicking in explorer. if you double click in explorer, it will start a 2nd inkscape, and they wont play nice ...

Nice!

You are an awesome illustrator and artist. And I don't mean that based on this drawing. I perused your site in-depth.

Take care.

1. Starry Ball I made this for my daughters. I didn't bother putting any rotation or randomness, well, because it was for kids. :D http://img408.imageshack.us/img408/1712/starball100x132ar5.png 2.

My avatar.

This wasn't my first Inkscape creation, so I figured I'll put it here. I finally decided to make an avatar. Bear in mind a couple things. 1. I really like tribal. 2. I love scarabs. Actually, I just like the overall image. I remember back in my Macromedia (now Adobe) Fireworks days, there was a scar...

Re: Clipboard Issues with Inkscape under windows...

I know previously, I was able to CTRL+X an SVG object from Inkscape, and paste into another Inkscape window.

Now, I have lost that ability. Not sure why. I guess I have to remove my SVG stuff by editing the markup? :|

Oh, and by removing I mean putting all my little icons into the same file.

Glad you got waht I mean once you played with it. Not the easiest thing to explain in text, but having it remain editable is a big plus. Yeah, I know.

Re: How do I recreate the specular heights in this picture? Or.

I'll admit, I still didn't understand that until I was able to play with it.

Now after toying with clipping a bit I see why it is so much better than working with Path Operations.

Thanks for that tip!

If all you want is maximised, saving the template maximised and checking inkscapes set to load window geom from files should be enough. Thanks, but like I said before... Now, I did try that, and it did open up awfully large, but not maximized. And in fact, once I drag it completely into view, I see...

[solved] Several usability questions.

1. Is it possible to make Inkscape always open up fullscreen? 2. Is it possible to "clean" your current workspace? To explain this, sometimes I get to mucking about and wind up with a screen full of garbage I don't plan on keeping. So, I do CTRL+A then DEL. (Select All then Delete) I hate ...

Re: How do I recreate the specular heights in this picture? Or.

Duplicate, offset and then clip would be my suggestion, rather than the intersect, as the shape of your highlight stays easily editable. I don't see how clipping would be beneficial in this regard. Could you provide some generic steps, please? Nor do i understand how "the shape of your highlig...

Re: How do I recreate the specular heights in this picture? Or.

that's basically how i would go about doing it. except when i duplicate i also do a dynamic offset and bring it in a little before i draw my path and cutaway. You know, I hadn't even thought of that. I normally just use SHIFT+Drag, but I definitely see using a Dynamic Offset being the better option...

Re: How do I recreate the specular highlights in this picture?

That may work for something simple, but the entire reason I use an intersected object is because it will have the exact shape I need (the original).

For something complex I couldn't possibly imagine having to draw an intricate shape. Especially if I've already created it once.
