Re: Document Properties Not Displaying

Files will be different between the two scale settings, so continuing to use the older versions can lead to scale mismatches and possible unforeseen problems. I'd unplug the second monitor and setup Inkscape with docked dialogs, close Inkscape before reconnecting the second monitor, then relaunch. T...

Re: Inkscape NEEDS CMYK Color Mode

In the meantime, maybe you have seen this workaround:

Not very convenient, but you might find it useful.

Re: Making a template for Plasma cutting??

When you save as dxf, you can specify which layer(s) gets saved by using the settings in the dxf export dialog. So, you have the option of keeping all the assets in one file, or you can save discrete SVG copies for each version.

Re: Document Properties Not Displaying

If it were my setup, I'd dock the properties panel (and others) for startup and tear them off and float them during the working session. When done working, I'd re-dock the panels before shutting down. Versions before .91 have the scaling still at 90 dpi (instead of the current standard 96), which co...

Re: Unwanted duplicated nodes

Now after about 25 days, it seems, this problems is solved. Path setted to absolute all time. Zero duplicating nodes. Hmmmmm, maybe this is not a bug. It is a bug, but the good news is that the workaround seems to work for you. I'll file a bug report or add to an existing report when I get time to ...

Re: Forum hosting

One possible solution would be we can just ask to tag things appropriately, instead of not allowing them. I don't mind people showing off their art with undressed people. It's not the rules themselves, it's how they're applied (most are just common sense) which can make things go well or not. I pre...

Re: Objects Docker

Entering a group is commonly achieved by double clicking on any object residing inside the group. There are other simple ways as well.

Ctrl+Click accesses an object within a group or groups, without entering a group.

Re: Objects Docker

The Objects Dialog is very handy and likely will get more developer love. What can help the Devs are reports that have consistent, repeatable issues described with steps to repeat the issues. WRT the objects changing position when moving between layers, there may be a transform on one layer. Having ...

Re: vector and/or layers not transferring over 100% to alternative file formats

Before you send the file, maybe try something like this:

You might also save a copy as pdf and change the extension to .ai. That should work. I can convert the file using Ai later today if you want to send it.

Re: Union Question

I wouldn't use stroke to Path... At best that will likely cut the profile twice.

I'd combine the paths of the original tabbed shape, then merge the many duplicate nodes, and then add the new shape to the profile.

Re: Unwanted colour changes

Considering the issue is only about a channel full-on or full-off, I'd try just typing in the number 0 or 255... this will probably not change.

Also, if I am using the same colors repeatedly, I can put them in a palette and just click on them (if they aren't in the palette already).

Re: Unwanted duplicated nodes

A little more digging... The paths that show an extra node when using the number-nodes extension are the ones that will duplicate (when it actually happens). The node that duplicates is #1. It seems the node will not duplicate if its joining segments are straight lines (no Bezier handles), nor will ...

Re: Vector file and PowerPoint

If the png they supplied doesn't work for any reason, you can open the Ai file in Inkscape and save as an SVG. Current PP versions should allow import of SVG as vectors and transparency.

Re: Unwanted duplicated nodes

I think it's a bug. Not completely predictable/repeatable here (yet). The relative mode seems to add the stacked nodes for some unknown reason. Also unknown is why some objects and not others. Optimized setting was probably the reason why the behavior was erratic for objects that would add nodes, bu...
