Re: paisley pattern

If you're asking what I think you're asking, you'll need to "punch out" the fill from the layer(s) below the flowers. Assuming you're referring to the white paisley shape in the middle of your screenshot, there are a couple of options: 1) Duplicate the black outline then select the duplica...

Re: How do I remove the rectangle around this bitmap?

In fact I would go further than TD's suggestion: I would start with a new document and just put a single circle in it with a flat colour. Export that and see if you still get the rectangle. If you do, then it suggests the issue is with the Siemens software; if you don't then you know it's with your ...

Re: How do I remove the rectangle around this bitmap?

I'm assuming you mean the corners extending beyond the round edge of the Start button. There are two possible reasons for this: 1) They are present in the PNG file. This could happen if you added a background rectangle behind the button in Inkscape before you exported, or if you used Save As > Cairo...

Re: How does the Interaction menu work (with javascript)?

I'm not entirely sure I understand the question. You can link to an external script, or you can embed a script directly into the SVG file (for larger or more complex projects linking is generally better). For both these options go to the File > Document Properties dialog, then to the Scripting tag.

Re: How does the Interaction menu work (with javascript)?

The only interaction you've got in that file is to log some stuff to the console, and to call a pair of functions (movimento() and movimento2()) which aren't defined anywhere. There's nothing in there that's even trying to change colours, so I can't tell you where you've gone wrong. Start with an em...

Well, I can - but it hardly seems worth it. The only change is the ID used in getElementById(). E.g. on the "Colour" rect (which has an ID of "rect10" because I didn't bother setting it manually), the onmouseover goes from this: document.getElementById('color_change').style.fill ...

You can target the thing itself (i.e. document.getElementById('someID')), but that just gets you a handle to the thing. To make any changes to its properties/attributes you need to either change the properties that are directly exposed to JS (e.g. document.getElementById('someID').className = 'selec...

Re: paisley pattern

The problem is that your largest shape is on top, preventing you selecting things underneath. The largest shape has its fill set to "Unset". Note that this has a special meaning - it's not the same as transparent. Unset fills are used for some more advanced techniques in Inkscape/SVG, and ...

Re: Newbie - How to edit saved files?

SVG is Inkscape's native format, so you should be able to just open the files in Inkscape and make any changes you want. If that doesn't work for some reason, post one of the files here so that we can confirm it is definitely an SVG file and hasn't become corrupted in some way.

In 0.91 and later you can change the size of the handles, but the option isn't in the most obvious place IMO (I ended up having to check the release notes in order to track it down!). Open the Inkscape preferences (Ctrl-Shift-P), then go to Input/Output > Input Devices. You might also want to try tw...

Re: Fill Replacing Border after Turning Border Transparent?

The problem is that SVG specifies that the stroke is applied half inside and half outside of the shape. So when you remove the stroke, it not only removes the half that's outside the shape, but also reveals the fill below the half that was inside. You can see this more clearly if you change your str...

Re: paisley pattern

Not sure how the second point is a cusp (diamond shaped corner node) unless you were holding Shift whilst clicking. But anyway, you can just select that node using the :tool_node: tool and convert it into a smooth node using the button on the toolbar.
