E.g. like this (but with delays, and objects being hidden during delay, still need to implement that):

Re: Let lines simultaneously been drawn

Lol, yes, you're right. The logo animation thing (multiple subpaths being drawn 'like a firework') is just a by-product of how SVG dashoffset works when animated. What I want is really to make it look as if an invisible hand is drawing the things one has previously drawn on canvas - in the order one...

Re: Let lines simultaneously been drawn

We have 'selection sets'... They /could/ be used for it, and they do give an overview. It's kind of hacky, but would give a UI...

Edit: probably not a good idea, because it may be difficult to keep both CSS styles and selection sets in sync, if the user 'interferes'.

Re: Let lines simultaneously been drawn

The compound path thing does not work - try it to see what you get. It's going to animate all subpaths at the same time. Some will finish early, some later.

Re: Let lines simultaneously been drawn

The group idea sounds like a possible way to do it - but it adds complexity to using it. Not sure if I want to go that way, will think about it.

And text needs to consist of multiple paths, else there's no way to not draw the letters simultaneously (you'd need to connect all paths into one continuous line, so you couldn't write i...

Re: How to keep font size constant in Inkscape during rescaling?

As already said on stackexchange (I think), there's no way to do that, except for reselecting the text and reapplying the font size currently. See answer there for details: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50810466

Re: Let lines simultaneously been drawn

* I prefer having it in Animation, I think that's going to make it easier to find for the average user. As Inkscape doesn't show *any* kind of animations (e.g. gif), there's not really a potential for confusion - all animations need to be viewed with an external tool. I'll make sure it's very obviou...

Re: Path effect, power stroke, start/end cap, set default.

Just had an idea: you could use the 'triangle in' setting when drawing the path, which does have zero width caps per default. Only you'd need to pull on the pink diamond on the canvas, to convert the triangle into something with two spiky ends and a wider middle region.

Re: Path effect, power stroke, start/end cap, set default.

Ha, we had just asked the developer to change that, because we (Tim, who is an artist, and I) thought it was a silly preset, too :)
It will be different in the next major Inkscape version.

It's a hard, compiled-in setting, yes.
You will be able to change the presets in that version, too.

Re: Let lines simultaneously been drawn

I like Brynn's 'ghostpen' a lot... But there's a German ghostwriting agency named like that, so it wouldn't be a wise choice, unfortunately. So, something ordinary it will be. Line Animator, then, as it seems a bit more obvious than Path Animator (which sounds a bit more as if I'd be animating the d...

Re: Change font size but keep text centred in its current position

Ha, right. The transform dialog scales around the center by default (and doesn't offer an option to change that). I didn't know, I almost never use it.

Re: SVG image looks terrible in Safari.

What kind of filters are you using in your file? (I think the bottom screenshot is the one from Safari?) It looks like there's a problem with the browser trying to interpret a filter. Not all browsers support all types of filters. What I'd try: select affected object, go to Filters > Remove Filters,...

Yeah, I know, I wanted to make a pun... something less ordinary. People often use these kinds of videos for explaining things, so the dual meaning would have been used.

Re: Change font size but keep text centred in its current position

Does it work if you center the text before you change the size? It's only going to center horizontally, but that's better than nothing, I guess. Or maybe it's possible with matrices in the transform dialog (but please don't ask me how... no idea about the numbers one would need to insert to scale ar...

Inkscape uses the fonts installed on your computer. It doesn't come with any fonts.

Thank you, I didn't think of using multiple style tags. As I've been planning to try and not repeat myself too much in the styles I insert, so it can still be adapted manually without a lot of search-and-replace, I've thought of using classes for some of this, and ids for other parts. But this can s...
