Re: Text: Editing slowness

You must be using the Text and Font dialog? It wouldn't be surprising that it takes a long time, if you are editing a large amount of text. But you can edit on canvas, in my opinion, much easier. All the commonly used features are available from the control bar, on the canvas (since a couple of new ...

Re: Filling Text leaves behind old color

Yes, of course the path can be open, under certain circumstances, such as you've shown. But without knowing more about the project, I feel better saying that paths need to be closed. Because otherwise the next thing you know, we'll be hearing 'I did what you said but now I have bigger uncolored spac...

Re: Convert patterns to objects

Not really. That would defeat the purpose of using a pattern. You could make a different pattern for each color, but I'm not sure if that would be the best approach, without knowing more about what you're doing. There might be a tool or feature that would work for you. Could you tell us more about y...

Re: No Optimized SVG Option

Or possibly you have an older version of Inkscape, which didn't have that option. Although the fact you're expecting it probably means you've seen it before, and don't have an older version.

Indeed, it's near the end of my menu as well!

Re: Filling Text leaves behind old color

On the control bar for the Paint Bucket tool, is a setting Grow/Shrink. You can put a small positive value in there, and it will fill in the gaps. However, other areas might go right over the border. Or you can switch to the Node tool, and drag the nodes or node handles around, to fill in those gaps...

Re: Paste text from Word or OO Writer

How much text is it that you're trying to paste? Did you enable to the Text tool first? After that, did you click once on the canvas? Are you sure the layer is active? If you dragged out a text box, and the text box isn't big enough, the text might not show up. However, unless you know what Flowed T...

Re: Export SVG to DXF

There is often a size discrpancy when saving as DXF. When you open the DXF, try zooming out. In my experience, the DXF is always zoomed way, way in, so that I can't see the contents.

So possibly the file is not really empty.

Re: Text top layer not showing

If you open the SVG file in Inkscape, the text will show up in its original state, and you don't have to try and remember it. Select the text, and do Text menu > Convert to Text. Or select the text and to Path menu > Union, which will convert the text to paths. Now the text will show up in any kind ...

It's possible that Interpolate is working, but the results are not on the visible area of the canvas.

Try looking around - scroll around to lo...

As far as I can tell, the color of a selected node, when the mouse is not on top of it, changes depending on what color is behind it.
