Re: Edit fill not working

Adding my two bits here is really unnecessary at this point, I think, since the OP answered their own question and has not come back but when has that ever stopped me? OK, don't answer that.

Re: Random Rotation using tweak tool without breaking it apart.

Well, I can't explain a lot better without some lovely animation as some people here are much more skilled at. Here's a file attached that you can open, select all, switch to the tweak tool, set it to rotation and drag over the objects back and forth to see the difference. If you scroll and blink ve...

Re: Random Rotation using tweak tool without breaking it apart.

The big problem for you is that all these groups need to be converted to patterns. Select one of them, press Alt-I, then Tab, Alt-I, keep repeating until they have each been converted to a pattern filled rectangle. If you have hundreds it may unfortunately take a while. (But next time you can make t...

Re: Random Rotation using tweak tool without breaking it apart.

I ran into exactly this problem and I used the spray tool to spray some randomly rotated clones of my little foliage and it worked very satisfactorily. The internal components of each group maintain their position in relation to each other, and although I liked a little variation in scale you can us...

Re: realistic pen pencil chalk line help

those strokes are just too narrow to use effectively with that filter. Just scale the whole drawing up. I have found the best chalk effects to start around stroke widths of 16 and around 32 they are what might actually look like pastel on paper. You could open up the filter editor and play with freq...

Re: how to create vector file out of png file without outlines

SVG made with a font will be sharp at any size, and the file size stays the same (small). With PNG to display large the file size also becomes large, or you have unsharp lettering

Re: Inkscape export PNG > ms word > PDF

Alternatively, you can go to file/document properties and change background color to have maximum opacity (255). The Cairo PNG save is not a good option for many reasons but if you are stuck with it there are ways to address the resolution problem

Re: Help hide the path outline for the pen tool in B-Spline mode

B-splines are a new addition to Inkscape. What looks on the surface to be a "Tool" or a 'mode' of a tool is actually not, when BSpline mode is activated it takes the input from the Bezier pen and sends it to a Path Effect which sends the results to the Canvas. Bringing it in like this made...

Re: Help hide the path outline for the pen tool in B-Spline mode

You will have to go the developer's forum and ask them to rewrite that part of the program for you, it might be more efficient to rewrite the code yourself, since this might be something that most users would not want. Often some feature might be irritating when one is a novice but with some experie...

The bottom object will always be cut by the top object. In the KO the circle was on top and therefore your strange result was the circle cutting the grid.

Re: Inkscape blows up - obviously its me

Inkscape can parse polylines but not edit them. Regardless of that the bucket tool fills this object as it is. Make sure it is set to visible colors. You can try select all and then object to path to make them editable, but it is unlikely to be the problem you are experiencing. More likely there is ...

Try each letter as a separate text object, and use the transform dialog with "Apply to each object separately" checked.
