Re: increase/decrease object by a given border size ?

The extreme distortions in the OP's file are due to the scale set in the document properties. (See attached revision)

I suggest using a default template of display units px and scale=1 ( or: mm, scale=3.77953).

As for the creation of smooth nodes, I don't know.

Re: Moving Object into Group Changes Position

There is probably a transform attribute applied to a layer. Working in the Objects panel can be tricky... Layers in Inkscape are actually special groups, and groups can have transforms like any other objects. The objects panel allows switching a layer into a group behavior and vice-versa, so when on...

Re: Help masking letters then putting it over another pic please?!

I'd use a copy of the text to clip one image, then use another copy of the text with just the stroke on top of it for the outline. Group those two. Then you can move that group anywhere on the page... on top of the birch paper for example.

Re: Complete noob alert. Please nudge me in the right direction.

The file has to be ungrouped and each letter should be re-grouped.

Then you can import your picture into a new Inkscape document and copy the letters you want from the vector file to your picture.

Re: How to set measurements to default at inches?

Please read carefully: New documents created with units=in and scale=96 will create objects the correct size. Changing the scale of existing documents as described will enlarge existing objects, which then should be transformed to the desired size. Save as 'default.svg' in a directory called 'templa...

Re: images on workspace disappeared!!??

Did the file get saved as svg? That will save everything.

If the file is saved as pdf, anything outside the page is discarded and will not be available if the pdf is opened in Inkscape.

Best to "Save a copy as..." when outputting to PDF, and ensure that the svg is saved as svg.

Not exactly...

Check the settings panel when saving as pdf... so that save as PDF saves the page size.

Re: How to set measurements to default at inches?

Because I've been under the impression (with this very confusing and still new features) that the Scale should be set to 1. No matter which unit you change to, it changes the scale, which then needs to be set back to 1 (unless the user really does want some unusual scale). How can a scale of 96 pro...
