Re: Border only towards the outside

That's been a requested feature for a long time, but still not possible. Besides tylerdurden's suggestion, another suggestion would be to make the outline into a separate object. There are probably a couple of ways to do that. Since I'm not sure if you might already know how, I'll wait for you to as...

Re: Installed Fonts not found in Inkscape 0.92.3

Inkscape needs to be closed when you install new fonts. Well, it doesn't have to be closed, but the font won't show up until you close and re-open Inkscape. If you've already closed and re-opened Inkscape by now, and you still have the same problem - If that's a free font, could you share a download...

Hi Newton, We're going to need a good bit more info. I'll ask all the questions I have. 1 - "....make some boxes with magnets...." It sounds like you mean real boxes, as opposed to drawings of boxes. Right? It sounds like you're going to use a digital cutting machine to cut out the cardboa...

Re: Pattern stroke, treated as visual not geometric bounding box

I guess we'll need to ask developers if patterns are supposed to respect the choice of bounding box. (Inkscape developers generally don't visit forums.) Since I've seen this problem myself (although not exactly in the same way as you presented) for years, I don't think it's new. Of course I could al...

Re: how to keep raster quality/detail when scaling down?

Well I know that if you paste vector contents on a Mac, it rasterizes the pasted content. Are you saying that pasting a raster image damages the raster image? Or that scaling it after you paste it damages it (but doesn't damage non-pasted raster image)? I'm not sure if that's been known, up until no...

Re: clip imported raster just inside colored line

I would probably trace the red line with the Pen tool, and use that to clip the raster image. Or trace the inner edge of the red line.

Re: how to keep raster quality/detail when scaling down?

No, I can't cite any references. It's just a fact of life that if you scale a raster image, it will pixelate. I have heard people say that scaling down a raster image won't pixelate it, but I've never been able to accomplish any scaling of a raster image, without degrading the sharpness. I suppose I...

Re: Pattern stroke, treated as visual not geometric bounding box

So you're thinking that the Pattern is supposed to respect whether the user has chosen the geometric or visual bounding box? If this is a bug, it certainly has been around for a long time. I'm not a frequent user of the round cap style (or even occasional, really), but I've always seen patterns act ...

'Edit > Select all' only selects objects in the current layer. It depends on what option you've chosen in Inkscape Preferences > Behavior > Selecting. If you choose "Select in all layers", then Select All does select in all layers. why doesn't 'edit\select all' doesn't select anything?) I...

Re: how to keep raster quality/detail when scaling down?

No, I think you misunderstood about SVG and scaling. There's no way to scale a raster image without losing quality. Just because it's in an SVG or other vector format file, it's still a raster image, and it still pixelates when scaled (or zoomed).

I'm not sure if I completely understand your problem, or what you're trying to do. Possibly this FAQ will give you some ideas. I'm not sure if your problem is exactly the same, but some of the "fixes" it offers might help.

When you enable a tool, let's say Pen or Rectangle tool, please tell us exactly what "nothing works" means. For example, when you press the mouse button and drag, do you see the bounding box growing as you drag? The bounding box is the dashed line rectangle. If you see that, but you don't ...

Re: Keeps hanging when starting up, opening, or saving

Is it a large file? If so, how much RAM on your system? Or are you opening a new blank file? It seems like uninstalling fonts would make it start faster, instead of slower. So that part is curious. The only way I know to try and find out what's happening on your system is with either the Task Manage...

Re: Saving a part of an image as a separate image

Or possibly crop them in a raster program before importing into Inkscape? Depending on the complexity of the contents of the maps, I might consider tracing them first (vectorizing) and then warp the vector paths to fit the grid. Envelope deform LPE would be a good tool for the "warping". I...
