Re: Export SVG to DXF

Hi. Dxf is more of a cad format. I. e. cad softwares open those rendering either filled shapes or lines, polylines etc. (Don't expect pattern fills, gradients, masking/clipping/filters, just the geometry.) Probably the latter, in your case. There are 256 predefined stroke widths which are assigned t...

Re: Why double text outline? Example: Letter O has another O inside it.

Hi.

Set the right stroke and fill attributes (Shift+Ctrl+F).
My guess is you have a semi-transparent stroke and you need to move the alpha slider back to 255.

Re: Shape fill: Use of boundary of another shape

Hi. I prefer overlapping the objects. The reason is, the anti-aliasing method the renderer uses composites the semi-transparent pixels with a simple addition which then as a result won't have the same coverage as expected. "Rendering gap issue", so to say; the background shows through at t...

Re: How to draw the 2D scheme from the given shadow?

Oh you got to love stereograhic projections. Used that in my thesis project . My approach was modelling a sphere with the right mesh, unwrap it to a grid layout, set a mirror texture and bake&unwrap the reflections. In your case, you'd need the baked texture to be cut into the sphere. Maybe afte...

Re: Checking in and Search

Hi there, good to see you back!

Here is the one result I got by searching: Dee's font.
Maybe the topic is the one you are after?
(I'll also have to dig into fontforge as unsatisfied with ISOCPEUR and osifont -time to create the real deal, ISO 3098 compatible lettering).

Get well!

Re: Pressed UI button

Attached is the button in the un-pressed state. Well, if only there was a magic/more magic button right? This case if there were more filtering options... anyway, here is my 2 cents. The button shape and all is generated by ONE filter. Although it might sound promising, if the object's bounding box...

Re: Blend mode = Multiply not displaying in browser

Hi. Adding filters to a logo is not a good idea in general -especially if you want to print flyers later on. Hence I'd suggest something flattened as in this attachment: Chemistry-Growth-Partnership2.svg My guess is the result could be achieved by filtering through browsers too. The layer blending m...

Which is a strikingly unexpected feature of a development build.
Usual workflow makes your left hand lay on the Ctrl button. Ctrl+drag with mouse? Bang, your view is rotated.

Re: How to create this swirl pattern with filtering?

Hi. While filtering is the jolly joker of procedural textures in inkscape, making one to generate an exact match is out of the scope of the current filter primitives. Also you are limited by the renderer and the colour profile used in the process. Having said these, something similar can be achieved...

Re: Problem with Bezier tool

Hi. Would suggest checking the tool settings first. No shape -not from clipboard, no triangle, no rounded no spiro-path no B-spline. Then it should work as expected. Further on, be avare of the style settings -a wide stroke with 0 alpha value and no fill could produce the same result. Set opacity to...

Well that explains it then -neither eps or pdf supports filtering so they can't bring in any custom blending modes by definition.

No.

Just a new empty layer which you can remove after the process. Silly hack but it could work.

Re: Filters are not applied when exporting/printing

Hi. The feather filter upon opening your svg doesn't get rendered. Sort of. Because in reality, it does work as it was set. Opening the filter with the filter editor it shows the blur filter primitive in the chain is set to 100% -that won't produce feathered edges. That's the gist of it. In general,...

Re: Stars rotate slightly upon creation

Hi.

I usually hold Ctrl while drawing with the * tool. Release the key once finished dragging with the mouse.
So far didn't see an issue with this method although I'm not running the latest version at the moment.

Re: Sides of letters look like spiral rope.

Side related, since mac was mentioned: if you are working with texts in a text editor, that operation system renders the text differently than windows. It's another case of anti-aliasing, or to be more precise, hinting. As far as I know mac renders letters "fatter". Maybe that's the reason...

Hi. The perspective transformation is out of the scope of the 2D transformation matrix inkscape uses on canvas.
