Re: Alphabet Blocks

Thanks much and thanks for the critique, they aren't suppose to look realistic, they are part of a larger comp that has a cartoon teddy bear. Thanks again

Re: Alphabet Blocks

I don't seem to have "path effects", the closest I see in the path menu is "path effect editor" anyway thanks to durban's illustration I was able to understand and get my letters on correctly:

Re: Alphabet Blocks

Thank you for that link Byrnn, I didn't get much of it but understood enough to get the letter on correctly. Use the perspective LPE, it's much easier. Select text, then do Path > Path effects > + > Perspective/Envelope, switch to node tool to drag the nodes. Where is that located? I can't seem to f...

Re: Alphabet Blocks

Thanks very much for the link! I tried adding a letter to the cube with the perspective extension but the letter on the left side of cube gets turned sideways, what am I doing wrong?

Re: Alphabet Blocks

Thanks, that's exactly what I want to achieve, but I don't know how to use the 3d box tool to get the perspective or shape that I want. Is there a trick to drawing the cube manually?

Re: Making Seamless Tiles

Tiled clones still have the rendering gap issue. Slightly related article . Probably you don't see gaps because you are using a certain zoom level and your tiles are perfectly aligned to a pixel grid. You're right, when I zoomed out I could see lines running through but when I saved it as an eps fi...

Re: Making Seamless Tiles

Thanks everyone for the help. I haven't tried the extension, maybe I'll give it a try. Thanks Raspi for explaining how you would do it, I want to give it a try but I'm not sure what you mean by "displace"? The bug they're talking about was fixed because I didn't get any gaps when I cloned ...

Re: Making Seamless Tiles

The tutorial specifically says to use geometric bounding, I tried the visual box option and I end up with huge spaces between the clipped tile when I clone it. What is fill pattern, do you know of a tutorial that explains it? I would love to be able to make seamless tiles in an easier way with less ...

Is it possible to even open an eps file in Inkscape? I can save eps files in inkscape but Inkscape will not open them even though they have no gradients.

Mouse pointer

I don't know what happened but now when I move over an object with the selection tool a little hand icon appears. Can anyone tell me how to disable it? I find it kind of distracting. Thanks.
