Re: (root) layer?

You're not doing anything wrong, it's just a quirk of how some files are written (and how Inkscape creates layers in a file format that doesn't really have layers).

I would simply select and cut all objects in the root, make a new layer and use Menu: Edit>Paste in Place (Ctrl+Alt+V).

Re: Stray Marks in Bitmap Trace

You may notice that the trace operation leaves the original bitmap behind the resulting paths. I usually delete that to ensure no extra junk gets in the picture. You may have also seen that the trace can produce groups and/or stacked paths of varying grayscale (or color). I'm imagining that there ma...

Re: Stray Marks in Bitmap Trace

Presuming the original bitmap has been deleted, I'd look at the screen using menu:view >outlines... See if there are paths there.

Re: Objects borders not perfectly aligned

It looks like the nodes are aligned, but not snapped to the axo grid - despite the cusp snapping being already enabled. Likely the issue is anti-aliasing artifacts when rendered to bitmap or by screen renderers. Vector objects with mating lines cannot be perfectly reproduced in pixels. If paths are ...

Re: Object: Setting size

From the manual: By default, a zoom of “1” corresponds to one Inkscape pixel per screen pixel. If you would like to calibrate the zoom to a real physical measurement unit (like inches or centimeters), you can do so under the Interface section of the Inkscape Preferences dialog. You will find there a...

If a font manager was used, the font might be only partially installed, using a shortcut.

Re: Printing to 100% scale

No worries... it's probably just a communication/translation thing. If I want to see an A4 portion of a much larger graphic that is scaled to final size, I'd just selectively position the artwork over the A4 document boundary and save as PDF.

Do you want to :
Output an image that spans multiple pages? (poster tiles)
Output a larger page with the same size artwork? (more whitespace)

Maybe you have seen this? There are three types of text objects in Inkscape. The first is regular text. The second is flowed text; this is a text object that includes a rectangular frame. The third is linked-flowed text. This is a text object where the text is flowed into a separate arbitrary shape ...

Re: Help on Oval Sign

Sheetcam only recognizes paths, so the text objects need to be converted and the stroke on the big ellipse needs to be converted. There is an extra ellipse that can be deleted. The oval and text objects can then be unioned, then the horse head can be unioned to the rest. https://dl.dropbox.com/s/kti...

For me, there are two yellow flags:

    2) providing copyrighted files ready for mass-production

No problem showing people how to use tools though... With the suggestion they do something original.
