Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

No, my distro is allright, only in Inkscape I have issues. I have built an 1.0 beta, so the problem might be gone with some change.

Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

Exactly as I expect. Still does not work my disrto's build, but works the one I have built myself from your git repos.
What do you use to capture to gifs, btw?

Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

Really, I think I'm drunk. :)) I recap. When I say "overlapping", I say I have a drawing with several segments, where the segments are lines with 2 nodes, in my case Beziers, but straight, each segment being in continuation of other, so each segment node has same (x, y) coordinates with a ...

I was drawing with "Triangle in" active, not applied it after closed path (if that is possible).

Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

Interesting. Chosing Bezier with triangle in shape, drawing some shape with 2 segments only, will break Inkscape (0.92.2). It won't set a stroke and fill again, no matter what I set and do with the tools.

Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

No, I have an issue here, don't know which it is. Long ago, when I've started with Inkscape I have found working with nodes very handy and superior to Illustrator. Now, something is different or broken,, seemingly. Could be KDE itself, I don't know yet. Or te current build. I have an Intuos tablet t...

Sorry to be unclear, I was not asking to know where the line/path/shape extends, but how to make it extend in a certain direction by setting the value in those boxes.

Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

Joining points is a basic feature of any vector tool.
Also, selecting. That does not work here.
Anyway, joining should be available for free lines too (that are not a part of an object), despite this is not my case.
I know LibreCAD, in some cases took so many time to perform import operations.

Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

So how do I select the end nodes I want to join? That's my issue. They are overlapping perfectly and I can't select them both at once. I find no shortcut for that, like shift and mouse or something. Also, what is all about shortcuts? Does Inkscape obey the Gnome principles? I've seen many applicatio...

join lines at overlapping nodes

Hello, I revisit Inkscape 0.92 under Linux with KDE and I try to do such a simple task! I have a drawing with lines, drawn for a simple technical schema of a wall. I try to join the lines, as they are not yet joined, and I see the points are overlapping. Do I have no means to select the overlapping ...

Re: If you could choose 1 thing that must be implemented or fixed in Inkscape 1.0, what would it be?

Hi, I have landed here by looking for scripting. I think a scripting and debugging tool would be very useful, instead of looking for extensions and writing them in a pretty much closed way. It's inflexible. Illustrator has it (along with Photoshop and other tools). Scriptographer is another example....

Re: New gradient mesh tool usage

Yes and no.
My idea was to create a gradient mesh starting from the path definition and how to do this in the first place, as a UI process too.
The feature request above is related to what happens after, which is a fine idea.

Re: New gradient mesh tool usage

Why not starting from the path nodes (with their handles)? At least as an option? This would simplify the process, starting from a further step. Why creating a squared or round mask and struggle to match it to a shape (when a match is needed)? All the data is already there. You have some arbitrary s...

Re: New gradient mesh tool usage

I have experience with Illustrator and I must say it is pretty hard to fit a shape sometimes. Anyway, if the possibility to decide by one click where the corners of the mesh are would help for a rectangular mesh. For circular mesh, no corners are needed, just a center point, probably.

Re: New gradient mesh tool usage

Bending is a solution, but not the only one. I took a segment and created a mesh over and worked on it to bend it approximately: sm bent.png In this case, I see probably more steps to have a gradient between the outer and longer arch than on the inner arch, which is shorter. IMHO, this would be a so...

Re: Would you buy Inkscape if it wasn't free anymore?

Me, I need to export Illustrator EPS vector files from Inkscape first. Right now Illustrator rasterizes vector objects when it opens the EPS files. So I have no reason to buy Inkscape. I would rather buy Illustrator. If Inkscape exports Illustrator compliant files (the future gradient mesh included)...

Re: Gradient mesh

In my case i use many GTK apps under Windows, both 64 and 32 bit.
Inkscape is 32 bit I guess, so GTK 32 bit should be too.
Anyway, it could not use the GTK I have on my path at all, but its own GTK. I don't know for sure, the devs of Inkscape should tell what happens in this case.
