Re: Object Clip > Set Multiple Holes

The sub-path that does not clip may need to be reversed before combining.

Indeed.
There are issues with preserved, so I stay with optimized.

Re: Cutting a part off a letter

There are two common ways: 1) Use a copy of the large circle to hide the unwanted portion of the 'o' with "clipping. http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Clip-Clipping.html 2) Use a copy of the large circle to trim-off the unwanted portion of the 'o' with a "path operation" (b...

Re: Paragraph line spaces

Maybe you have seen this? There are three types of text objects in Inkscape. The first is regular text. The second is flowed text; this is a text object that includes a rectangular frame. The third is linked-flowed text. This is a text object where the text is flowed into a separate arbitrary shape ...

Re: Help on Oval Sign

Sheetcam only recognizes paths, so the text objects need to be converted and the stroke on the big ellipse needs to be converted. There is an extra ellipse that can be deleted. The oval and text objects can then be unioned, then the horse head can be unioned to the rest. https://dl.dropbox.com/s/kti...

For me, there are two yellow flags:
    1) doing someone's homework
    2) providing copyrighted files ready for mass-production

No problem showing people how to use tools though... With the suggestion they do something original.

Re: designing a font

I seem to get similar results.

Maybe some rounding errors involved as Inkscape writes text sizes explicitly in px?

Re: wavy text jumps around

Thanks for the file.

I could not replicate the issue using the provided preferences.xml, so that is not it... not exclusively, anyway.

I notice the preferences were set with small icons/tools. Maybe this is display/gpu related? I'm using 1920x1080 native on a laptop.

Re: wavy text jumps around

Interesting. Does this also occur with nudging using the modifier keys? (Alt, Shift)

Julia, Xav or Moini, would you care to post (or send me) your preferences.xml? I'd like to try to replicate this.

Re: wavy text jumps around

One blunt-hammer approach is to rename the preferences.xml to preferences.OLD. (check the system section of preferences for location)

Inkscape will generate a new, default preferences file. That could give us a clue.

Re: wavy text jumps around

The artwork (nice, btw) is fairly small... you might check the settings for steps in the preferences. The arrow keys (nudge) may be set for large increments. Below are arbitrary settings , just to illustrate where they are in the preferences panel. I don't suggest copying them. Preferences_(Shift+Ct...

Re: Problems exporting svg to dxf laser cutter

That looks hand drawn.

I'd use the gear extension in Inkscape to make a proper gear, then export to dxf using polyline.

Re: Help on Oval Sign

Looks by your handle and the subject of the project, that this is a high-school cnc project.

If that's the case, shouldn't the goal be to do the work? It's one thing to ask for help with HOW, it's another to ask for people to DO.

BTW, I'm usually a stickler for copyright protection too.

Re: Problems exporting svg to dxf laser cutter

PS: I did a round trip with an Inkscape extension-generated gear... out to LibreCad using polyline, then imported back to Inkscape on another layer.

Looks perfect.

Re: Problems exporting svg to dxf laser cutter

Polyline sometimes works, but I'd check the accuracy of the shape before cutting.

I might also try building the profile in LibreCad or Fusion using the dxf as a guide and save from there.

Feel free to attach an example file for us to examine.

Well, I'm going to accept that it's possible, but might be long on the wishlist. Plus, there is a high likelyhood an extension like that could lead to even more problems. Consider an imported file from CAD that has all the curves made from tiny straight segments... Inkscape can take a long time to s...
