black rectangles that show up in the icon preview

What are the black rectangles that show up in the icon preview of my ubuntu (thurnar) file browser? See the image? You can see the file preview on the left has black rectangles. I don't see them on my drawing... [img]https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lWQUyxpZzmQM1VFL3GM7W6y4djikMBNJ

Edible Landcape Food forest Design

Hi. This design is become very difficult to work on. The biggest problems occur when turning layers on and off. Sometimes takes 15 minutes. I have almost 4 gig of ram and my system uses 1.5gigs. Sometimes I run out of ram and the computer shuts down. I'm looking for some geeky advice that doesn't in...

Re: Food Forest Design

Thank you for your replies. To further investigate the issue I made a copy and deleted every image from all of the layers. Then I deleted all of the layers. The file size of the original was 74.5 MB. The new file with no layers or images is 74.1mb. Here is the blank file with no layers. https://driv...

Food Forest Design

I've finished this design and I have a problem with the file size. Why is it so big? I've made a copy of the file, deleted all of the layers and the image is still over 70 megabytes.
Check it out!

Re: Maintain length while moving nodes.

Here are the warnings etc. This may not work in all versions of Inkscape. This requires you to activate the appropriate icons on control bar and select preferences correctly. I'm using inkscape 0.48.3.1 and I can't get it to work. I have activated :tool_node: and click on a segment to select the tw...

Food Forest Landscape Design

WIth only 1Gb of RAM I"ve decided to put this on hold until I get a better computer because it takes to long to do anything and sometimes it crashes and I have to get an older version from dropbox because the file is impossible to open. What do you think? I can't attach it (I don't know why), s...

Re: Blend Mode Darken problem (Ghost offsets)

THank you brynn. I hope that someone more knowledgeable somewhere some day will be able to figure this one out because solar maps are so great to have when planning for growing plants.

Maintain length while moving nodes.

I'm creating scale drawings for landscape design and I have a fixed length of fencing. I'd like to know how I can draw a line and then add nodes to it and change the angle of certain sections without resizing the length. For example if I know I have 100 meters of fence :tool_pen: and I draw a line m...

Thank you very much for your reply. Your alternative method worked very well of my application using rectangles. To further complicate things I would also like to achieve the same results using other polygones and circles. Unfortunately the fix for rectangles does not work the same for circles. I'm ...

Blend Mode Darken problem (Ghost offsets)
