Re: Different line width by path segment

Tylerdurden. I can't figure out what is causing it, don't think the extra nodes only occur on stroked objects (but can't swear to that). I've tried to re-create how it happens and can't cause it on purpose. Also, I have duplicated an object, say a circle or rectangle and only one of the objects gets...

Re: Different line width by path segment

Ponny. I think you have 2 diff issues. I think it's a bug that extra nodes are created by themselves, hence nothing we can do about it ourselves. It doesn't seem to help to delete the extra node(s), it simply keeps re-creating them over and over. It seems like the stroke being dis-proportionate coul...

Re: Different line width by path segment

I've only had the issue of duplicating nodes appearing since using v 92, it's driving me nutty, and I can't figure out why it happens. No matter how many times I delete the extra nodes, boom, they re-appear. And just to be sure, are you sure your button is selected to change the scaling proportional...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Thanks Brynn. I will check that out. DDG sounds like a game, lol. I posted a note in the msn forum, figured if anyone should know how to remove them, it'd be them, but so far no responses, only views, so it's not a common issue. It's not hard to find file mgrs, it's hard to find one that can remove ...

Re: Bezier lines inconsistent width (Inkscape 0.92.1 r15371)

Beth, I have the same issue with stroke to path. Since I don't use that option very much, I do a simple workaround - add more nodes. You can do this before or after applying stroke to path. Very easy, select your object or path, in node mode select all the nodes (or just the ones involved), click th...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Moini, yes I have. That was a good idea though. Searched .ttf, Plain*.ttf and Plain*.*. nothing of use. Pretty sure this isn't a Windows issue - the fonts aren't being wiped out by inkscape - only. They are gone from Word. I think Pherim found the hidden file by using some other file mgr - not windo...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Brynn, I kept installing my font because I needed to test it after making changes, kerning, line gap, etc, so each font, while having the same name, looks a little different. Also re-install other fonts because they've updated the font. ok, I'm not an expert, but here's what I 'think'. Font naming i...

I have that problem too Shoansa. It's so frustrating because I've designed a font, so have installed it dozens of times! yikes. I can't figure out out to delete them either- not sure what Pherim means by 'using a different file manager'- the only one I know about it what comes in windows (win 7). I'...

Re: seeking 3d drawing program - off topic - but don't know where else to ask

Are you using a mold to put the glass into to get the form (can't think of what it's called right now, slumping maybe)? I just can't visualize how a pgm could estimate the size of your piece or how much glass to use. If calculating amounts is your primary target, I would think some basic math calcul...

Re: Changing colour within a Outline

Glad it worked. Just as fyi - with some fonts you have to convert it to a path first in order for path>difference method to work. (just be sure to duplicate your text before converting it on a separate layer). If you run into the problem of clipping not working, also try converting to a path first.

Re: Lines of Zero Width

Not as far as I'm aware, it wouldn't be a stroke unless it has some width. 0.100 is the smallest that I get (I could be wrong). Would this work - select edit> select all in all layers, then group everything. Then all you have to do is go to the fill n stroke box and select the lowest stroke (0.100) ...

There's size and there's 'size', so to speak (in my head anyway). If you hit the Export button, and then look under the Image Size, the size (width and he...

Re: convert svg to jpg

I agree with Moini that the png retains the better quality (which is why it is a larger file size). Re exporting size: the larger dpi when exporting gives you a larger file, but not a higher resolution. There have been many debates over that issue. The 300 dpi is what is needed when printing, but wh...

Over the last few days I've received a few PM's but did not receive the usual email to tell me that I got them. I checked, and I DO have both the email and notification radial buttons checked. Is there a glitch right now or is this just me? My email is working fine BTW.

Re: increase/decrease object by a given border size ?

Just a comment - he originally used Lazur's formula- when Inkscape was using 90 as a scale and now it's 96, could that be throwing it off somehow? Can't determine is he's using the old file or new one. Maybe he needs to recalculate using 96? (I really don't know). Also, instead of using outset, I wo...

Re: Need some hired help

Just seeing this post now, so it's probably too late to be useful. But, Pinnerd, have you tried to use GIMP to open the EPS file? It's also open source. Also, if you made the file smaller physically, reduce it to say 20% of it's size, wouldn't that make the file small enough to load (maybe not even ...
