Re: Font Variants

Keep in mind, Inkscape follows the conventions of CSS and SVG, so variants outside of those conventions may not work well or not at all. For example, SVG and CSS only supports nine weight variants, the numbers 100, 200, …, 900 but some faces have a weight of 1000 (as supported by FontLab).[3] Since ...

Re: What is this handle on my text box?

It seems I can do the same thing (manipulate the gradient handles) with the text tool, so that's a likely scenario.

Re: Text and mirror object

I would try putting text on a path and then group them both... then clone the group and flip it with the select-tool controls.

Re: Where is "Document Properties"?

What version of Inkscape, OS & version?

You could try renaming your preferences.xml to preferences.old and let Inkscape create a default version. It's in your user profile.

Might be best to share a file with the path and the shape you want to put along it.

Re: Today's puzzler: Center the pattern of pink dots around the gray circle

...Is THAT the goal? If so, when you say "precisely concentric" do you also mean evenly spaced around the circle? The problem is: The pattern of dots (which are already properly spaced in a circle) is not centered around the gray circle. There is less space between the dots and the circle...

Re: Today's puzzler: Center the pattern of pink dots around the gray circle

While the rotation centers of the pattern and the large circle are coincident, the distance of the dots to the large circle is inconsistent.

An even number of dots would be easy to align using default rotation centers, an odd number, not so easy.

FWIW, the pattern of dots is not centered. See today's puzzler: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=34458

Re: viewing layers in .ai files

Yes, Illustrator saves as SVG. But layers in Ai are likely converted to groups, um... because SVG doesn't really have layers.

Re: Logo only visible on black background

It's a little hard to make suggestions based on just the description.

Rather than us making random guesses, It would be best to post a link to the file on dropbox or similar.

Re: Error opening certain SVG files.

A simple calculation error in the vectorizing software. Two instances of coordinates (start/end) came up as NaN. I changed those to zeros and the file opens in Inkscape.

What software is used for the image to SVG?

Re: Export into PDF/EPS/PS creates an empty file

Outlines are probably not the issue, but thanks for chiming back.

It seems a simple matter of creating a swatch, then move & scale the object that's using the swatch color, but getting it to fail predictably in a PDF is my next challenge.

OK, here's what I would try... In the Inkscape XML editor, expand the "defs" section, and for each gradient that has a gradient transform with a matrix, delete that transform. Clean and save. Save a copy as pdf and see if it helps. Del_def.png I don't know how to get the transform matrix t...

Re: Export into PDF/EPS/PS creates an empty file

You should play the lottery... you hit a bug right off the bat. PDF export does not handle swatches at the moment . Plus, there are more efficient ways to use repeating elements... check out clones and tiled-clones in the manual. Plus, there are better ways to build the elements, but that will come ...

Re: Export into PDF/EPS/PS creates an empty file

15MB is kinda large for a vector file. I'd try using the "clean document" tool in the File menu to see if that helps. I'd then try to save as PDF.

If you're willing to let me look at the original svg file, you can PM me.
