Re: Selecting only one shape

My personal view is that it's okay to ask in more than one forum - after all, a new Inkscape user doesn't know what the overlap is between users of different fora, so might assume they're asking the question to different groups of people. Out of politeness they should perhaps link to the other posts...

Re: Is it possible to arrange all-upright text on a circular path? If so How?

Oh yeah the new arrange is very nice definitely the way to go if you don't want to keep text editable To clarify, the text objects remain as text objects and are still editable. It's just that they have to be separate objects so you have to edit each one individually, rather than dealing with a sin...

Re: Is it possible to arrange all-upright text on a circular path? If so How?

If each text element is a separate object, the Object > Arrange dialog can do the trick in recent releases of Inkscape. Turn the circle into an arc by using the handles to open a gap, then select the arc and the numbers before opening the dialog. Use the Polar Coordinates tab, and turn off the "...

Didn't know that HTTP/2 is working differently in that respect - thanks for the extra info :D Yes, HTTP/2 opens a single persistent connection then multiplexes the requests over it.

Re: Text box is "inside out"

To expand on druban's comment, "flowed text" is what you get when you click and drag with the text tool. It is based on an older SVG proposal that never made it into the full spec, so is incompatible with basically anything other than Inkscape. The recommended way to create text is to simp...

Re: Transparent background LOGO

I'm normally used to working with CS Photoshop so the Inkscape program is different for me. Although Photoshop has some vector capabilities it's primarily a raster program - which goes some way to explaining why your SVG file contained a raster image. Inkscape has more in common with Adobe Illustra...

Re: Alpha Channel vs. Opacity

Be aware that they also combine. So you might have a group with two objects, separated from one another: one with full alpha, and one with it set at 50%. If you then set the opacity of the group itself for 50% the result will be as though the alpha of your original objects had been 50% and 25%. But ...

Re: cannot draw perfect circles and squares even after pressing CTRL

Holding CTRL (not just pressing and releasing) while you draw constrains the shapes to integer ratios - e.g. 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, 1:2, 1:3. For a circle or square it must be 1:1, which you achieve by dragging close to a 45 degree line from the start point. If you check the status bar at the bottom of the ...

Re: What counts as a bounded area

Reduce the threshold slider. That is used to determine how different adjacent pixels can be to still be counted as part of the background. By setting it to 100 you're basically allowing the black to be within the threshold, so Inkscape doesn't "see" the boundary and thinks you're filling a...

Based on your example file, although there are lots of open paths, they do form closed areas. Therefore the Fill tool :tool_paintbucket: will probably achieve what you want. You may need to play with the threshold and Grow/shrink settings to get the best results. If you have other images with open a...
