Re: paisley pattern

Now I've got one more question: - How can I change everything on a multi-coloured logo like this one to make certain elements of the logo be seen as a white transparent/white image (svg/png) to appear as a while in a transparent header??


I don't quite follow your question.

Re: Export layers to multiple files

I can't give you an answer about that. But I did find this extension: https://github.com/fluffware/export_layer_combinations If it exports layer combinations, I would guess that it could export one at a time. But you'd just have to test, to find out.

Re: Resizing Besier lne messes up it's shape

If the path is getting out of shape when scaled, it's probably that you have a Shape option enabled on the Pen/Bezier tool control bar. Switch it to None, to draw regular paths. You can fix the existing path without having to draw it again. Select it, then Path menu > Remove Path Effects. After that...

Re: Is there an Inkscape command line tutorial?

Maybe there was just a glitch when you tried to access the command line reference: https://inkscape.org/doc/inkscape-man.html I find the website is often slow, so maybe you just didn't give it enough time? When you tried, did it give you any error message?

Re: Moving Object into Group Changes Position

I haven't heard of such a bug. I would suggest just to pay close attention, and the next time you see this happening, share the SVG file with us, and tell us exactly what steps to take, to reproduce it. Are you dragging and dropping only within the Objects dialog? Or are you dragging to and from the...

Re: stroke to path with crossing lines - can't get it to do what I want

Oh, sorry for not explaining. LPE is Live Path Effects. Path menu > Path Effects. There must be 15 or 20 of them by now. Some of them do very simple things and some of them do very complex things, but there's a live aspect to all of them. So that after you apply the effect, you can adjust it from th...

Didn't they give you any original SVG file? As far as the file Full (poppler-cairo import from pdf).svg, and the PDF file, I would not consider these files to be particularly "editable". Note that I'm not a professional, and in this case, depending on how much editing you want to do, I thi...

Re: Windows 10 install problem

If the directories are empty, then clearly the installation didn't work. Have you double-checked you downloaded the right file?

Re: Help masking letters then putting it over another pic please?!

My first hunch is that the outline will need to be a separate object. But maybe not.

Could you share the SVG file with us? I think I understand what you're trying to do, but don't have time to search out a pictures of trees and bark, to make an example. Using your file would be faster :D

Here's my old avatar file, to show how the over/under needs to be handled. Ungroup and "take it apart", to see. Also it has a white fill and blue stroke. So you could change the fill color, to make it easier to understand. If I understand what you're doing, you would not use the blue borde...

If you need something that's more like a ribbon, Pattern Along Path might be an option. Or even draw the original line with the Calligraphy tool with the nib set at an angle.

Re: Need some hired help

If all you have is a PNG, Inkscape will not be able to edit it at all. But it sounds like you must have at least partially a vector file. It would be most helpful if you could provide the actual vector file. Edit - We need to see the vector file, because if the text has been converted to paths, it c...

Re: Rectangle trapezium

Well, I saw one thing that said something like the attached would be called a trapezium. But other things showed the kind where 2 sides are parallel and the other 2 not - more what I think of as a trapezoid.
