Re: Align tools on components of a group

If I understand you correctly... depending on what you want to align to what in which way... Can't you use snapping to guides to align subelements of different groups? Additionally, - if the moving group should not change its x-position hold Ctrl-Key while dragging. - if you have a lot of points che...

Re: convert svg to jpg

@Gitte, are you still here...? If not, the following might also be helpful to others. I still assume you want to include an SVG into MSWord(?) and you don't want to lose the quality of the SVG by converting it to .png or .jpg? Try the following: - open the SVG with Inkscape - select all objects (Ctr...

Re: Export to PDF without changing file type

@Moini, yes, Win7/64.
gtk or native? Sorry, I don't know. How can I tell the difference? Maybe a hint... the save dialog buttons are in German (probably because my Win7 is in DE) although I set English for Inkscape.
No, I don't see a "recently used" section in the save dialog.

Re: Export to PDF without changing file type

Hi @pcarvalho, welcome to the forum. Maybe a small simplification might be: Open and work on your SVG, do changes and also save it as SVG (Ctrl+S). That's your "Source or working File". If you want a PDF use "Save a copy" (Shift+Ctrl+Alt+S). With this, you keep work working with ...

Re: How to avoid distortions with Stroke to Path?

Actually, it's difficult for me to believe that this should be numeric imprecision. A concrete example: One node of a crossing which should be at coordinates x=73.12, y=264.17 is actually located at x=73.023, y=264.348 (that's about 0.1% off. Well, a detail, who cares ;-)).

I have set the precision to the maximum (Numeric precision 16 digits and Minimum exponent -10). But I'm not sure whether this at all influences the calculation precision of Inkscape or just determines the SVG number output. Well, if I enlarge the path e.g. by 500% and do the "Stroke to Path&quo...

OK. Yes... The intuitive, direct way doesn't seem to work without distortions: 1. select combined path 2. Stroke to Path You get distortions. Workaround without distortions: 1. select combined path 2. break appart (fortunately, all the subpaths stay selected) 3. Stroke to Path (fortunately, all the ...

Re: How to avoid distortions with Stroke to Path?

My guess is you have some path effects on the original objects. Not that I know of. I haven't used any LPE. These are just some Bézier curves. There is nothing to convert with Shift+Ctrl+C. The status bar tells me: Path 8 nodes on layer Layer1 Well, if I break this path (Shift+Ctrl+K) into its 4 su...

When changing a stroke to path you get unwanted distortions. I wouldn't call them minor. 1. Why? 2. How to avoid them? Is there a preference setting which I haven't found yet? Example: To duplicated paths on top of each other. Black bottom, red top. After "stroke to path" of the top red pa...

Re: Lines of Zero Width

For laser cutting you typically (at least I do) export it to DXF and send it to the laser cutter. So, the stroke width in Inkscape doesn't really matter. Strange things can happen if you have a stroke width of 0, so I wouldn't to this. In general, I also would recommend to set Menubar | Edit | Prefe...

Re: Connect intersecting lines
