Re: Edit fill not working

A number of new users don't find the Fill/Stroke dialog when the icons are pushed far to the right. The dialog will not open from icon using the shortcuts or buttons.

Re: Edit fill not working

Maybe the OP does not see the dialog docked on the right because the icons are so narrow? WRT the status bar info area not reporting, it seems on some versions Inkscape only displays prompts for shape objects in edit mode prior to another message or when the pointer is over a handle: https://dl.drop...

Re: Random Rotation using tweak tool without breaking it apart.

If the groups are already placed, I'd go with the clones: https://dl.dropbox.com/s/lnprig06sbnu7ah/2019-09-18_07-43-22.gif If the arrangement is still in progress, I'd make the shrubs into symbols (particularly if this will be reused in variations, like landscape design). https://dl.dropbox.com/s/4n...

Re: Unable to save as viewable pdf

You might find some SVG sheet music images or have a friend with LilyPond make you a sheet. Using that instead of the bitmap image of music will allow you to scale the artwork to poster size and keep the entire poster sharp. https://dl.dropbox.com/s/1kmof3noc1vu0v8/GPNMF-TD.svg_-_Inkscape_2019-08-30...

Re: Unable to save as viewable pdf

This file looks like it was originally a pdf. There is a mask on the left image of sheet music that may be interfering with the output to pdf again. I'd get rid of the mask and use GIMP to color the image to match the palette. This requires extracting the image (extensions). https://dl.dropbox.com/s...

Re: How to check/change rx & rx of an existing rectangle?

To be explicit:
rx and ry numeric entry should be visible/editable with the rectangle object selected, the rectangle tool active and the Controls bar visible.

Ensure you have a rectangle object selected by checking the information area of the Status bar.

Re: How can I change the Objects… dialog icon so it can be different from Layers' one?

I understand it is not a complicated change: make a dialog-objects icon, add to the set, edit the verb. I was under the impression the edited verbs.cpp still has to be included in a new build. Edit: And a new <bind> ( and update to keys, if a shortcut is added). (?) http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/ind...

Re: How can I change the Objects… dialog icon so it can be different from Layers' one?

Celita has filed a report indicating the following: I had checked the verbs.cpp file and there is a mistake: both verbs for Objects and Layers dialogs have the same icon defined: new DialogVerb(SP_VERB_DIALOG_OBJECTS, "DialogObjects", N_("Object_s..."), N_("View Objects"...

There is not any easy way.
Looks like you have already filed a report, so perhaps all that is left is to make a unique icon.

Re: outline remaining after clip

I can't tell from the screenshot if you are seeing just the "bounding-box" (the outline indicating an object is selected) of if there is something else you are seeing.

Please share the svg file.

Re: Optimized SVG "could not be saved."

Well, you don't need to resize the pace to fit the artwork, but that is the easy way to get the artwork inside the page boundaries.

The artwork in the uploaded svg is way outside the page.

Re: text flow into frame

Spaces (via spacebar) between the letters make the letters into words. Flow text wraps text at word breaks.

Line height can also be regarded as spacing between baselines.

Re: text flow into frame

The above should work. Flow breaks text between words.

A word with no (breaks like the original text) will be truncated.

Digging deeper into the file, it looks like it was saved as a PDF then edited again in Inkscape... there is a plethora of groups, clips and masks not needed for this design. Other items I keep in mind: Save a COPY as pdf, so the original SVG is retained for editing. After tracing bitmaps, delete the...
