Re: spread your Inkscape love - new Inkscape store!

Maybe one of Lazur's patterns on the front and a small Inkscape logo on the back?

Re: Selecting only one shape

Is that a new rule for this forum? Which forums are covered? In the past, and I am not suggesting that this should be the case in the future, people using software like GIMP or Blender etc. would ask their questions or post images etc in multiple forums without censure. I understand that even asking...

Using the nodetool (as you are), select one node of the shape you want to delete, press ctrl A and then press delete

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

I think reading the OP which sounds like an electronic device with writing around a dial or knob, your solution is going to be the right method, but yes, I meant text string, not text letters

Oh yeah the new arrange is very nice definitely the way to go if you don't want to keep text editable, and the knob scale extension is nice, I can see a good use for it in blender

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

It can be done but in every case it would be much faster to do it by hand, especially for a novice, no unkindness intended. And the results of using an automated procedure would be more unpredictable - you would have to go back and redo it several times to get the precision you could get with manual...

Re: Can't edit letters after converting to path...

Probably it's a group, try ungrouping it.
Use the node tool and select the segments to delete and you will be done much more quickly than the methods you are suggesting

Re: Turning the Grid by a specific angle

in document properties you can create an Axonometric grid and specify the angles of each axis. This should more or less be what you want. you can also set up default grid settings for new grids in preferences. there is also a render grid extension with multiple options but snapping will be as to obj...

you can't clip a rectangle with a png but you can mask it.

Re: How to copy and paste while keeping layers intact

The import command will do some of what you want, but although it will keep the groups separate the layer designation will be lost along with the layer name of course. But all is really not lost! In the new objects dialog (latest versions of Inkscape only) you will find the groups still magically ha...

Re: wavy text jumps around

Thanks for sticking it out until something worked. As best I can explain, optimized means that Inkscape calculates the net transform(movement) of all the different levels e.g. path/path effect/group and puts it into one transform instruction for faster execution. Preserved means that each level keep...

Hi Julia! In your preferences change the transforms setting from optimized to preserved and then see if the problem is fixed!

Re: wavy text jumps around

Bug is reproduced exactly as described on Windows.
Transform is miscalculated when path effect bend is on a path.
A workaround is to group the path in a group by itself which immediately stops the jumping.

Re: Help w/ Interpolation

1. you cannot interpolate between groups
2. union is not the same as group but you might be thinking that
3. only when your status bar says two paths can you use interpolate
4. use duplicate endpaths or your interpolated paths might be hidden behind especially for a low number

Re: Help w/ Pattern

the manual does an excellent job of detailing what you should do, and I should not have assumed that you had read the manual before watching the videos. every video really should have a link to the manual in the description!
