Re: Transparent Text on Circle?

Unless I'm misunderstanding, all you need to do is remove the fill color. Formally, you can use Object menu > Fill and Stroke > Fill tab and click the big X button (top-left area). But I often use a sort of shortcut button. At the left end of the palette is a tiny square with an X in it. That will r...

Re: If you could choose 1 thing that must be implemented or fixed in Inkscape 1.0, what would it be?

If it's not too late for this, I was just answering yet another question about the problems using Inkscape in a dual or multiple monitor setup. I'm not sure if this is already on the devs' radar, but I hope it is. It seems like multiple monitors are being used more and more these days. In addition t...

It could be a low resolution image. Or it could be a line that's either too thin, or the space between the heart and the line is too narrow, based on the Threshold setting (if you used an option with a threshold setting). Or it could be the image is just very small to start with. You could share the...

Re: Inkscape has weird gray icons instead of defaults

That sounds pretty easy to me! Among all those themes listed at the link you gave, I guess there must be themes which are specifically for Inkscape, right? I can't imagine that all of those would work with Inkscape. So if you wanted to make your own, you'd have to learn how to use that program? (Gno...

Re: cutting a line out of an object

As a vector graphics editor, Inkscape works differently from raster graphics programs. An Eraser tool is really more suited for raster graphics, but one was added to Inkscape anyway. Although it never has really worked properly for me. For vector graphics, it's really more typical to edit nodes and ...

Re: Bug? Object looks like a circle but should be a square

I thought TD had suggested changing the Rx value from 265 to zero. I was only adding a note that there's a button which automatically reverts both Rx and Ry to zero, so that you don't have to change the value, only click the button. I put in parentheses to emphasize that it's hardly worth mentioning...

"Rendering tile multiplier" is a new one for me. Can someone give a relatively simple explanation what it does (besides speed things up - I mean how does it speed things up) ?

Thanks!


Nevermind - just found the tooltip :mrgreen:

(Just to be thorough, another solution. There's a the button on the far right of the control bar which resets it to sharp corners.)

I haven't heard this problem before. By "vertical resize" do you mean the corner arrows or the middle one? Can you show us a screenshot? It sounds like you're thinking this is only happening for you, meaning that sharing an SVG file with us, we would probably not see it. But if you think w...

I realize this is mostly solved by now. But I wanted to mention a different approach: Edit menu > Clones > Tiled Clones. Besides making tiled type of arrays, that can create the randomly placed, randomly sized and randomly colored stars, or any kind of object. For the stars being only 3 colors, I wo...

Yes, v1nce and Lazur! Please give it a try! I'll do anything I can to help (although doubt if that amounts to much, if anything). Although I could help with testing for sure.

Are these white lines showing in the EPS version of the image which you attached? Or are they only showing in Inkscape?

Re: Why is bounding box too small?

I think Polygon means to upload your SVG file with the raster image already imported. Of course I don't know the source of your raster images. It's possible you would have no control over this. But whenever I'm saving a file, I almost always make sure I save at least just 5 or 10 pixels outside the ...
