Linux Mint 18 only provides an older version of Inkscape by default. But you can use the ppa instead:

Re: Delete objects outside page (not clipping)

There are several options for this: If you do not need to cut any paths, because objects are either outside or inside the page area: 1. Drag a selection frame around the objects for each side and hit Del (so, 4 times) 2. Use the eraser tool in object deletion mode and just drag the mouse around. 3. ...

Re: Requesting Help for procedure to load plotter driver

There's no way around it, you need to find out the brand (even if no-name) of the plotter, and then find out which languages it will understand. There will be a serial number or a name somewhere on it.

Re: Requesting Help for procedure to load plotter driver

Which plotter?
What file formats does it understand?
Does it eat files, or do you need to 'print' to it?

Re: Box with spot for a magnet

I think the poster is asking about specific settings for his or her CNC machine - i.e. how does the SVG path need to be styled, so that the CNC machine does not cut, but just take away some material. The answer is, this depends on your machine, and how it wants the data to be formed. You need to loo...

Re: Cannot draw solid line at first

Better don't use 'unset'. To change: Make a line. Select it. Hold Shift. Click on the black square in the palette at the bottom. Double-click on Bézier tool icon. Click on 'Take from selection'. Now you'll always get a black stroke when you use the Pen tool. This is different from 'unset', which mea...

Re: Having trouble cutting my drawing ...

Hey Bob, grouping is quite useful for drawings that consist of lots of objects - and many files that one downloads from the internet (or when you import from pdf, for example) already contain groups. For fastest ungrouping, do Extensions > Arrange > Deep ungroup.

Or share the drawing. I suspect there's some kind of grouping getting in the way. The eraser might not work as expected, then.

If this is the same as:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1174909 ,
it's going to be solved when cairo is updated on your computer. It requires at least version 1.15.10.
If you're on Windows, there may be Inkscape files available for you.

Click and drag to select multiple paths. You need to hold Shift if there's something below the mouse where you want to start dragging your frame. Or: Hold Alt and drag over the paths you want to select. Or: Hold Shift and click on all paths you want to select Or, if things are in a group, but you wa...

Re: how to keep raster quality/detail when scaling down?

Brynn, in Inkscape, if you use the handles to scale a raster image, it just makes it look smaller, it keeps all image data points. Inkscape does not edit raster images. This is in concordance with your observations in the XML editor.

Re: How to draw random colour dots?

You can draw random sized dots, and randomize their color afterwards (spray tool with a single object, then: randomize color extension). Or you can draw random sized dots, arranged in a regular grid, with random colors, but need to change their location (either random, or intentionally) afterwards (...

Re: how to keep raster quality/detail when scaling down?

@hiccup: does copy/paste work correctly for you with the x11 version? That can be a source of confusion, it's making bitmap copies with 96 dpi on Mac with XQuartz, dunno about x11.

Re: hangs when moving 2300 objects to new layer

Hi, The SVG file format does not know what a 'layer' is, this is entirely an Inkscape-internal concept. A 'layer' in Inkscape is just a group in the SVG file. Because of this, you can have objects in the 'root' layer, which is the root of the SVG file. Inkscape only puts layer groups in it, but othe...

Re: how to keep raster quality/detail when scaling down?

When I zoom into a bitmap image that I scaled in Inkscape with the scaling handles, I can see all the details that are in it (i.e. it pixelates at its real pixels). I'm not sure, though, if that's what you've been doing.

Re: Pattern stroke, treated as visual not geometric bounding box

I think the issue here is that you're using the 'Tiled clones' dialog, and that clones do not *have* that distinction between geometrical and visual bounding box. It's either the whole clone, or not a clone.

Use boolean operations to cut off those parts you don't want saved in the SVG. See https://vektorrascheln.de/posts/2015/De ... operations for example.
