Re: Paste into Layer

The insert position apparently depends where your mouse cursor is at the time of pasting. Probably similar like importing a picture. If your cursor is outside the visible working space it will be pasted at the center of the working space. And if you have centered your page/layer beforehand with resp...

Re: Linewidth of scaled polygons

@Moini, ok, that's how it is. However, I don't understand the logic behind. A stroke is a stroke and can be scaled or not. If I don't want it to be scaled I deselect the option "scaling stroke proportionally". Polygons and stars also have a fill and a stroke. Why shouldn't it be possible t...

Re: Linewidth of scaled polygons

Thanks, @brynn, for the links. They didn't show up during my search. It somehow seems related. And as I see so far, no simple fix...

Linewidth of scaled polygons

If I scale a polygon in one direction, e.g. a triangle, I would expect the result shown on the left. (back=original, red=scaled) However, Inkscape creates the result in the middle. As you can see in the sketch on the right, apparently the thickness of the scaled line depends on the angle of the line...

Have you tried the Bezier Envelope ? It works.
maybe, then I am using it wrongly.
That's what I get when I apply the Bezier Envelope...
and that's not what I would expect.

Re: How can i draw an envelope path with perfectly symmetric handles ?

It could be all so easy if that Extension wasnt so picky about handle position. are you sure it is the handle position? Isn't the conclusion more: it doesn't matter whether you have a perfectly symmetric 4-point envelope, Inkscape cannot (yet) distort the path in a way you want it to be, i.e. compr...

Re: How can i draw an envelope path with perfectly symmetric handles ?

if you allow for another node, the following could also be a simple solution:
1. create an additional node in the center
2. make this node symmetric
3. drag this node vertically while holding Ctrl-key
4. drag one handle horizontally while holding Ctrl-key

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.

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 ;-)).

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.
