Re: Announcing Inkscape 0.92.4

It used to be difficult. But with Inkscape 0.92 it is as easy as copying
- the autotrace.exe and
- centerline-trace.inx and
- centerline-trace.py
to the user's extension folder.

I <3 Inkscape 0.92.4.

Re: Announcing Inkscape 0.92.4

So happy with the new Inkscape! I think it is finally going to replace my 0.91. It works great and I really like the centerline trace extension. It is very easy to install now.
0.92.4 works on Windows, I got it to work under Linux too! Very nice.
Thank you to all the developers!

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

Hi Moini, So, I am not sure if I can still add my one thing.. It would be very nice to be able to change the UI. Let's say add or delete buttons. And maybe in this way be able to make a simpler UI for children or not so advanced users. I think in the future Inkscape could be used in primary schools....

Re: inkscape on touchscreen

Hi Bartovan,

In this topic there is one person who uses a touchscreen only. But what kind of pen he uses, I do not know.

I do not have such a device, so it would be nice to read a bit more about it here. Good luck!

Re: Gradient mesh

Hi msdobrescu,
I tried it again with all the steps you described, under Win8. But it did not make the colours display in the gradient mesh. Unfortunately.
But under Linux everything works well, so I will keep that installation for the mesh experiments. But thanks anyway for the explanation.

Re: Gradient mesh

Ha, so I installed the Inkscape 0.91pre2 r on Linux Mint and there the gradient mesh does work properly.
So, it is more difficult in Windows 8... But now I can finally use the gradient mesh. Yeah. And next time I don't sleep well, I can try this nice feature in Inkscape.

Re: can you use a draw tablet for inkscape [Wacom Intuos Pen

Hi HTA-1010,

Yes, you can. I have the slightly older one, a Wacom pen & touch Medium. It works fine!

In Inkscape you must add the tablet once. Go to File > Input Devices and choose Use Pressure Sensitive Tablet.
Also choose Save (or else it will forget your choice)
and restart Inkscape.

Hi Xav,

Yes I agree that there is a lot going on in Inkscape. I recently wrote a part of a Dutch book, 30 pages about Inkscape. It felt like trying to put an elephant into a moving box. ;-) Well, good luck with the work.

Re: Using Inkscape without a keyboard

Dear JJReach,

Yes, it would be a very good thing if the developers would make such an app. There is a way to make a specific request, but I do not know how.
But please let us know if the suggestions work for you, so that other people who read this can learn from it too. Good luck with it!

Hello JJReach, It sounds as a kind of app-version of Inkscape. At the moment I do not know of such an Inkscape function or plugin for Windows. I think this might be a request for the developers. There is a GIMP & Inkscape app for Android with those modification keys on screen, but I think you ca...
