Re: How to make a window into shapes behind? (img attached)

Re: Image not rendering properly outside of Inkscape

Hi.
I believe the masking is the crux here; after making some objects filled paths and some boolean operations it will render properly:

Re: Having trouble with union I think

Inkscape does have an extension which I thought it's purpose is to join many short segments together. But I just tried it in your file, and it does not join the nodes. Apparently it only combines them. (https://github.com/fablabnbg/inkscape-chain-paths) I don´t think I need an extension on that par...

Re: Trying to use Inkscape making a Rectangle box

I´m not sure if in case of the 3d box it´s self-explanatory. As described I have to use the node tool (or ctrl+alt+LMB as mentioned in the Handbook) to select one of rectangles if I want to adjust colours separately - otherwise I´ll get an overall fill.

Re: Removal of unwanted contour line parts

Seems you didn´t watch the video. It´s about kind of vector eraser tool which Inkscape didn´t offer in a rudimentarily form.
AI´s shape builder tool is hard to match.

Re: Saving png but no transparent

Hi.
Make sure no objects with opaque colours are under your design and @ the document-properties (shift+cmd+D) background color is set to 100% transparency: 0

Hi.
From my experience you need to enable one additional snapping feature to let points snap to grid/each other:

Re: Snapping to guides

AfaIk the nodes will snap to the guides whatever alignment for the border/contour is set.
If you use "Transformation" (shift+ctrl+M) the border width will make it into account.

Are there other possibilities how I can reach enough information from the file that you can decide what to do?

Maybe try to contact the author and ask for an exported PDF file instead of ".ai".

".ai" is a very complex Adobe file format which can include lots of trickery Inkscape don´t know of. If the file you want to load has an PDF stream you might succeed - no guarantee given. When it´s an free file you can post a link and we can try a translation into an Inkscape friendly form...
