Re: Pasting a graphic into InkScape and then tracing bitmap

welcome, jd6strings to the inkscape forum.
Well, only things within the bitmap can be traced. Then you need to expand your bitmap before tracing. What exactly do you mean by cut off?
Could you please attach an example image? Then it should be clear to everybody.

Re: Pin curve at points not its ends

Maybe the LPE Ellipse by 5 points could do what you want. - draw a path with 5 points - apply LPE Ellipse by 5 points - e.g. keep points 2 and 4 fixed and change points 1,3,5 However, if you only want to have a part of the ellipse you need to find a way to hide or mask the unwanted part.

Relative move in % of object size?

In the Transform dialog (Shift+Ctrl+M) you can Move, Scale, etc. ... For example, you can scale by different units: mm, pc, pt, in, cm, px and % For some cases it would be nice if you could move several selected objects by % relative to their size, especially when you select "Apply to each obje...

Re: Resize an object while maintaining relationship to others?

glad that I could help :-) I am not an artist either. And when I need some drawings it's mostly going more to a technical direction. That's why I am missing quite a few CAD-like features, e.g. drawing with some specific scale, linked objects or constraints of points, lines, objects,... well, things ...

Re: Tracing a Bitmap image.

...as I said, the DXF file contains the outline of the areas, independent whether the areas are filled or not in Inkscape.
The CNC laser cutter software should be able to import DXF files or converting them to a format which it can understand.

Re: Tracing a Bitmap image.

Your uploaded image has 183x275 pixels. A bit more pixels would be probably better. But still, with Inkscape's trace bitmap you get nice results. - copy/import your bitmap as is into Inkscape (no need for AutoCAD) - play with the parameters (e.g. Brightness cutoff) in the trace bitmap dialog - edit ...

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...

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
