Re: [Bug] Can't open inkscape files without critical error

*grins* Thank you, Brynn. I see you're a Windows guru too!

Thanks for tightening up the terminology: "Use Other Program..." is indeed "Choose Default Program...".

Re: [Bug] Can't open inkscape files without critical error

I was just examining the error your system is throwing. This error seems to be linked more to the fact there was an upgrade rather than it being Inkscape as an application. My first choice would be an application that corrects common Windows Registry errors such as CCleaner over at filehippo.com. (Y...

While small in number (8 videos), Derek guides beginners through the essentials. Highly recommended for those wishing to get ...

Re: A Method of Creating Cartoon Word Balloons

BobSongs, that's exactly what I suggested ;-) Those buttons are for determining the order in which stroke, fill and markers will be drawn. Nice suggestion! And they couldn't have been added too soon. The ability to order the components within an object is a welcome change. Edit: However, the idea b...

Re: A Method of Creating Cartoon Word Balloons

Heya Brynn! Glad to see you're still posting away! I downloaded the new Inkscape 0.92.1 and noticed six new icons under the Stroke style tab (fill and stroke). One of these nifty new little buttons thinned the outer stroke. At first glance it reminded me of this technique of creating a word balloon....

Re: Measuring in inches

Changing the Inkscape rulers from pixels to inches:

Ctrl+Shift+D to summon the Document Properties.

First tab = "Page Tab". Under "General" click the drop-down list and select in.

That should do it.

There are some other aspects that could be handled better, but it wont effect the quality just the file size. And the point of adding this post? You're telling the artist how to do his job? Lazur? If you're not going to answer the OP's post, then surround your message in [offtopic] plea...

Re: Cannot get HQ quality PDF from SVG for printing

Mm, that would be my guess as well: high quality, probably meaning: 300 DPI print quality.

I'm going to download one of the listed files. A bit of experimentation and I'll see if I can get a 300 or so DPI PDF out of it.

V1nce is probably using a development version of Inkscape. The number stamped on the Inkscape development version might resemble 0.48+devel r12xxx. Not technically 0.49 ... but closer to 0.49 than 0.48.

Re: Nelchai's Memory Enhancement

I agree that in a day and age of terabyte drives and PCs with up to or beyond 16 Gigabytes of RAM that a 9 megabyte file ... or even a 34 megabyte file ... should not be too much for one application to handle.

Good point.
