Re: transform="translate(0,973.00002) How to always set to default and fix at 0,0 ?

I'd try setting the default SVG file to px as units and scale of 1. I'd also optimize transforms in the Preferences>Behavior>Transforms.

Re: Need help with weird division results.

I'd make color filled paths and put them behind the line art.

Re: Design Notes

Is there anywhere I can go within the file and create notes I'll want to refer back to later? I would love to see a dialog box that I could dock with my other ones. I put a generous amount of text into the Description field of the metadata tab (in Document properties). It might not be totally koshe...

Re: Installed Fonts not found in Inkscape 0.92.3

Yes, Win10 has brought some gremlins. There are workarounds: This is something we can't really "fix" in Inkscape, as the list of installed fonts is determined by fontconfig and not by Inkscape itself. Basically this is an upstream bug for fontconfig to support the Windows font registry (I ...

Re: Clipping isn't preserved when importing to Google Slides

Re: Using symbol from symbol library has different size than original symbol

Bummer. Thanks for the heads-up. I'll update the report on GitLab. You can use this default.svg (px=1) in your user profile Templates directory, to ensure Inkscape behaves better. Change the units and page size to your liking in the Document Preferences, but don't change the scale ( it will change a...

Re: Apostrophe and other symbols within a font

I spent a miserable hour trying to work out how to do this in Inkscape... Maybe the latest version does not have this link, but in 0.92.2 it takes about a minute or two this way: https://dl.dropbox.com/s/ekp6yafocusqx4o/New_document_3_-_Inkscape_2019-09-25_22-08-54.png Have a nice day. TD

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: 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...

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"...

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

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.
