Re: Inkscape no longer wants to open.

If any new fonts were added to the machine, it can take significant time for the Inkscape window to appear, especially if the machine is older/slower. After Inkscape has rebuilt its font directory, it should restart normally. Any new software installed on the machine could also install a new font, w...

Re: OCR of text

It is essential to keep or make the text as "Text" , not "Flowed text". Also essential to not convert any text to paths.

Re: Cambam to DXF to Inkscape?

The example file is still online and still has an issue opening in Inkscape, due to AutoCad version.

The dxf can be opened in LibreCad, saved as dxf version 2007, then opened in Inkscape.

Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

Nodes don't even have to be in the same path to be joined. The :tool_node: can operate on different paths and join their nodes making them one path; you have to add the other paths to the initial selection by shift clicking them, or select several paths with :tool_selector: before switching to the ...

Inkscape is not just any vector editor. It's first and foremost a native SVG editor. Maybe it's not for you. I use inkscape, illustrator, Corel, affinity, designspark, sketch up, blender, Freecad, LibreCAD, vcarve, fusion, aLibre, and more. None work quite the same as the other. There are many choic...

Re: Saving eps file

I rekon the OP just wants to scale the image.

As for the watermarked PD images... they are on a site that harvests PD artwork to sell $hutterstock artwork and other services; and in the process, they add their own watermark. Technically fair use, but a bit cheeky.

I'd use the star/polygon tool to make a triangle, convert it to a path, smooth the nodes, then use the flow text into path operation.
