Re: New user question re: break apart/ungroup

Yeah, that trace is a bit too sketchy.

Hand trace is pretty easy:

Better if I took more time... :?


Plus, for symmetric designs, you only need to do half, and you can mirror to get the other half.

Re: Why is there a calligraphic effect on my strokes?

That group (#1883) won't always be showing in that dropdown menu, which is the Layers indicator menu... Oh, really? NestedLayers_In_Status.png The selected object is in a deeply nested group, but as we see the status-bar dropdown menu shows the indented nested groups with the top-level group right ...

Re: Why is there a calligraphic effect on my strokes?

Is there an easy way to select the highest group? I just kind of fiddled around for a while until i happened to select it somehow, but i don't know what the conditions for selection it are.

To quickly go to the top group, select from the dropdown selector in the status bar.

Re: Why is there a calligraphic effect on my strokes?

This is likely related to a known issue with strokes inside a transformed group.

If the top level group is ungrouped, the strokes will be even.

This is good to know... pattern along path LPE works fine.

In this case, the three paths were named differently, so they would run concurrently, with the same duration.

Two things you might check out: 1) The pencil tool makes a line with many nodes.

Thanks for the explanation.

Please share the svg and jpg files via dropbox or google drive (etc), and we can give you better advice.

Re: Change font size but keep text centred in its current position

I'd try using the transforms dialog... use scaling by percent with proportional selected and separate objects selected.

Easy to select a text object and use select-same to get all the text selected.

Re: Help cutting a "circle" image

Familiarity is the issue here, not the toolset. Gimp is a great tool... That said, vector is the way to go for logo design. Many of us here use both Gimp and Inkscape, for the things they are best at. Check out the built in tutorials and other resources like youtube Inkscape videos by Nick Saporito ...

Re: SVG image looks terrible in Safari.

I'd try saving a copy as a "Plain SVG" and see if it works better.

I'd be happy to test, but Safari is no longer available for Windows OS. :/

Maybe, but the screwy architecture of masks and images in the defs makes me think it isn't a simple issue (which Poppler seems to make even worse).

Here's how I would proceed: Open the original PDF using Internal import. Ungroup everything repeatedly, until no more groups. Clean the document (Menu: File>Clean up document) Select the top chart image, it will say "Path 4 nodes" or such since it uses the image as a pattern fill. Make a b...

Re: Let lines simultaneously been drawn

I really like the CSS trick to make the dash-array draw the stroke... is there a way to include that CSS within the SVG?

(A working example would be greatly appreciated.)
