Taking a leave of absence

Hi Inkscape friends, Just wanted to let you know that I'll be gone for awhile due to medical reasons (again). Having major surgery which I believe will make life a bit better, and it will be a long hard road. Had to drop off a couple yrs ago, and wasn't able to let anyone know - this time I have not...

Re: Watercolor Text - How to?

I wasn't sure if you are creating your own characters/glyphs or not. But, I do something just a little different. (note, I tried using path>difference but for some reason it didn't cut a path due to the filter used I think). I apply the watercolor as a pattern fill. See attached for details. waterco...

Re: Interpolation Extension Bug ?

Tylerdurden, thx for that tut of tracing, I could not have imagined that for the life of me. I've used interpolation alone to get the gradient look, but never the tracing feature. Amazing. thanks much

Re: Interpolation Extension Bug ?

Yes, I see that it has added duplicated nodes on top of each other, esp on your right side version- this has been happening to me since v 91. When you delete the extra node(s), then the path opens. It's not just in interpolation, it's all over the place when I chg to a path. I used power stroke to m...

Re: Rearranging words and resizing the font and rearranging the whole text to fill as much as possible of a rectangle

I'm not exactly sure of the question either, but I think I see what he means. I just went to try to change the justification of just some text on one line, after typing some words on 3 separate lines, and then choosing 'center'. Might be a bug in it; the entire text box moved over an inch or so, ver...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

ps, we already took this thread far off topic, what's one more fork in the road! at least it's in the general discussion arena. And if anyone has followed it, we learned a lot about fonts, more than anyone ever wanted to know. My apologies to the OP. But if he had not of posted, I would never have s...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Thanks Lazur. Could use lots of positive thoughts (and prayers). I have a rare form of a rare illness, and not many surgeons worldwide can even do this, it's high risk, so no guarantees. PS. am still looking at your wonderful filters, when I return I have plans for several of them! Brynn, oh sorry, ...

Re: How to change background color of a grouped element?

What happens if you unlinkthe copies from the original? Will it then let you chg the color?
I really don't like working with tiled clones to be honest, I always get screwed up. I would probably do one color, then duplicate it onto a separate layers, and change the color of the entire thing.

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Thx Brynn, will look into that cleanup. Whatever I followed from Microsoft cleaned up thousands of old files, so far so good. I am guessing that creating fonts hides even more files than I ever imagined. Somehow I didn't save the link to what I did, so will never figure it out again. My pc is over 7...

While I can't claim to have learned it all, and kerning and line spacing isn't the greatest, I wanted to show you'all who have helped me so much the end result (don't get too excited, the font itself isn't real exciting, but it will let me do what I want to do).

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Brynn - here's an excerpt from the FF manual, thought you'd be interested: Non-Integral Coordinates In TrueType fonts all coordinates must be on integral coordinates. When FontForge generates your font it will round any non-integral coordinates -- sometimes this is fine, but it can also introduce sm...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Glad you were able to figure out how to use the input methods. Made some progress, I did use copy paste. I was able to copy the icons from other fonts, (opened up the Text/Glyphs menu and it docks with the SVG font Editor menu). Got the glyphs uploaded, even the card suits, and opened up in FontForg...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

You have to double click to the right of the glyph number, in precisely the right place, then a box opens up, ensure your cursor is in it, and then right click. confusing right? I stumbled upon it. I tried pasting the unicode, tried holding down the ctrl key, with the unicode, tried typing it, can't...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Question on the Inkscape font Editor - how do you add glyphs via input methods and Insert Unicode Control characters'? I haven't been successful at all. Can't find any documentation in the manual on the font editor at all, and searching the vids, etc hasn't helped. Basically I have a bunch of glyphs...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Will do re: the transformations. I 'played' with the flipped b and re-unioned it a few times, and it finally worked. Some of these, even after path union just don't appear. Getting there though. I assume I can put upper case, lower case and numbers, characters all in one file. Do you put the nodes a...

Moini - that video answered it, yay. and thanks. Needed to do a path union. Still some glitches, but figuring it out. here's a good one, it wouldn't preview my 'd', no matter what, even after path union and a simplify. Then I tried using my 'b' and flipping it, but the preview then showed it as a 'b...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

It's in Inkscape where it's off, for instance inkscape has 3 decimal places (x/y), so I may put a node on 60.995, where it needs to be on 61.000. All I can say is that FF calls .25, .50 .75 integer numbers, yeah, I thought it was a whole number too, but that's what I can figure out, don't know why. ...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Font maker meant any pgm used to make fonts. I do use fontforge, but not thrilled with it. What I mean is there needs to be a drop and drag pgm (like windows can do), where I build the glyphs in inkscape and drag them into the font pgm, line them up and done. Fontforge basically uses the dos type co...

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

It just doesn't work well, they aren't snapped to integral coordinates, and somehow they move, haven't figured it all out.

Re: Uninstalled Font still usable in Inkscape

Moini - thx for that info, that is simply wonderful. Guess I have to wait for v 93 (I haven't even upgraded to 92.2, might do that this weekend). I don't ever recall there being an issue of retaining old fonts until v 92, but maybe just didn't notice, I only started dealing with creating fonts a cou...
