Re: Make the highlight on a shirt button

At this point, google is your friend - but, if you could post some examples (for logo`s and animation as well) we could narrow the scope.

i.e. - what do you consider to be a sexy feature? ,)

Re: New group of extensions related to guides

Unfortunately, it also does not work on 48.5
Duplicate options on drop-down menu and some errors reported when deployed.

I followed your remark regarding the working versions (48.0 and earlier) but apparently it includes 48.5 as well.

Re: Why is it so much trouble to select text?

I`ll never get used to this need for convincing someone why does the IS operates in a particular way. Since you find it that difficult to select the text properly, whether or not it`s selected, I presume you were not that often in situations to deal with a lot of text, a lot of editing but with not ...

Re: Why is it so much trouble to select text?

Not necessarily... because in some cases estranged designers do tend to stack, reorder and align text and other textual elements all over them self ,) When "+A" is shown, when Text tool is active, IS presumes you`re about to create something new (new line, new flow text box...) while "...

Re: Why is it so much trouble to select text?

@ Ged Text is selected when cursor can "read" the text`s position. Some fonts, even without sub or superscript, have a baseline (small rectangle at the beginning of the word, lower left) distanced from the actual letter. Whenever you have trouble with selecting, just make the cursor active...

Re: Help using Pencil type for the calligraphy pen.

Indeed, but there is a workaround...

Draw the desired shape with Bezier tool. While still selected, activate the Calligraphy tool and then hold Ctrl in order to have the initial shape as a guide. It is kind of tricky to manage but it is doable.

You do realize that :tool_calligraphic: has several options, where one of the defaults behave quite similar to the provided example?

Which part of the tracing process do you find frustrating?
Should be easy - Pen tool, click, move mouse/cursor, click... end so on.

Re: Morphing with Inkscape?

^ It`s back. IMO, comparing morphing with interpolation, as we know it in IS, is not quite appropriate. Limitations related to interpolation are the true difference among these processes and expecting the desired (yet automated) results is closer to the crystal ball than to the reality. Also, expect...

Re: Shape Builder Tool

If you`re drawing in Inkscape once a month, you`ll fail to speed up your drawing with the existing behavior of the drop-down menu BUT if you use it frequently enough, you`ll get used to the existing shortcuts instead ,)
