Re: Need help with weird division results.

In the long run it's easier to separate the object by doing break apart and then combining each object into its own path you will have to work in outline mode at first and use the alternative selection tool, but you will find it goes very fast

Re: Help me colour my fish... Bezier pen, and then filling!

Which path tools are you talking about? Far as I could tell those are normal filled paths its important to remember that the variation in width is achieved by making each stroke into a filled path already filled with black. To simulate a fillable outline you will have to duplicate it, remove the pat...

Re: barplots to trapezium

The extension requires that you draw the envelope with the first node where you want top left of your target to appear. If you close the path it's difficult to see where the first node is, so for that reason I leave the path open as in the examples. notice how the arrow points to the first node (lab...

Re: ruler repositioning

No I don't think that's possible; Inkscape's entire code depends on the origin always being the bottom left corner of the page! OTOH we are all dealing with it so it's not a really big deal, can you tell us why you need the origin to be in the center?

Re: Objects disappear after boolean operation -- weird path?

Q. Is something about the path causing this behavior?
A. 62761 nodes maybe

Re: barplots to trapezium

either of these methods the extension requires the yellow path to be drawn - doesn't have to be right on your group, so it's very convenient to draw in the place you want and the deformed object will move to that location. the path effect let's you interactively resize but if you want a precise fit ...

Re: barplots to trapezium

pretty simple to do, in fact there are too many ways to do it without knowing if you want them to be curved at all, if they are all identical or is each one different, which side do you want to be shortest,
We have the pattern on path, the bend, the perspective, and envelope extensions, scatter, etc

Re: Corner to curve

The answer is basically telling you to draw the rounded corners on the shape. There is no really easy way to do this in Inkscape. It is not that difficult to use circles to cut away and add rounding to sharp corners using the Boolean operations. If you are hoping to avoid reading the manual I don't ...

Re: Corner to curve

you can use dynamic offset to achieve limited success by scaling down afterwards (left side) for small offsets, and for large pillowy offsets scaling down first and then simple node editing - vertical and horizontal drags (right side, two steps)

Re: i couldn't take it anymore

I understand that it's not been satisfactory, perhaps you could ask around to see how other people are managing their problems. Your situation can't be unique, and In other threads 1.0 seems to have resolved the Catalina problem.

Re: stroke width incrasing width

no sorry, I meant that when you have the 'powerstroke' effect in use, you will have 'nodes' that work as usual to shape the path curvature and on the path edges you will have 'control points' to adjust the thickness of the curve, both will need the nodetool to adjust them.

you can open the file in inkscape and use the dropper tool to sample the colors, using the first patch as a test to make sure your color space is not too far off from theirs. Edit: I had another look at their page, and it's all in the css. You can download the entire CSS part and all the hex nos. ar...

whoa!
'Beta' would generally indicate that it has bugs. Unfortunately you have to choose between Catalina and the older versions of Inkscape. You could possibly roll your OS back until 1.0 is finalized

you can just type in the hex code in the bottom right of the fill and stroke dialog. But I seem to remember we have gone through this before and that's not what you want. Where exactly would you like to enter the hex#? One of the solutions from before allowed you to make your own palette, but that d...

Re: How do I cut off the edge of a blurred object?

Clipping works just fine, and IMO is a better option than MeshG (the last one, for comparison) because the blur shapes can be edited individually. Remember to put the clipping shape on top unless you have changed the prefs. Grouping is unnecessary, and your problem was probably that your circles ere...
