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...

Re: Issue converting from .ai

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: Issue converting from .ai

Hi. Taking a wild guess -open the layers dialog (Shift+Ctrl+L) add a new layer and change it's blending mode to overlay for example. -That is the usual "workaround" for enabling the background image filter input in filter chains i.e. per object custom blending. That input is considered res...

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...

Re: Applying Perspective to Grid Lines

Hi. The perspective transformation is out of the scope of the 2D transformation matrix inkscape uses on canvas. Meaning you can only skew/scale/rotate/translate/mirror and combine those an object -in addition, do the same with the stroke attribute. That is, making it impossible to add a varying stro...

Re: Drawing filter help

Hi- That looks like some kind of edge detecting. Can be achieved with either the convolve matrix (effect looks same at every zoom level, not scaling with the object) or by some difference of a blurred copy and the original. Don't have it right at hand but it's easy to rig one. In the mean time check...

Those can theoretically be merged into one filter.
But since blurring radius is % based and not px, it produces different outcome on different sizes&shapes.
Anyway, here goes nothing.
