Re: Drawing icon as Stroke

Probably using different search tags but came across a similar solution to a merely production-wise problem on the bell font , where they included "ink traps". https://nicksherman.com/articles/bellCentennial/inkTraps-M.gif Guessing blurred vision works the same as ink spread so it helps fo...

Re: Drawing icon as Stroke

Hi. Probably that's of the style they are aiming for -consistent widths, simplistic monochrome interface design. Contrary I'm guessing technically that's a downside to store as "pure vectors" to use strokes instead fills. Strokes rely much on the renderer and can produce weird stuff. Not m...

Re: realistic pen pencil chalk line help

Hi. Honestly speaking the stroke of a pencil look rather different than what's depicted on your drawing. What we see is looking more like a line drawing -drawn with a much wider "instrument". Contrary a pencil drawing of those traces would look very light and most likely wouldn't give the ...

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

Hi. In my humble opinion with B-splines and using a tablet everyone have problems. The shape layed down is affected by the newly set "node" positions. Contrary Bézier paths, B-splines never go through these reference points and hence you can't even set an inflection point on a curve precis...

Re: [Bug] Pixelated vectors

Hi.

My guess is there IS a pixellize filter, sort of.

If your svg has some source outside inkscape it likely ended up with such a style attribute.
Check those objects in the xml editor too.

Hi. Interesting problem to say the least. As far as I know the Hershey extension uses a custom made "character set". Not even sure that uses the whole character set of the regular text object -most probably even ascented letters are missing-. But alternate letters is like ligatures; they a...

Re: Announcing first *official* forum

On an unrelated note,
blender released the stabile version of 2.8 today as well for downloading.
With a completely new interface, no more blender render engine but eevee instead. Huge progress in becoming the industry standard.

Maybe this year we can expect inkscape 1.0?

Re: How to Remove blank interstices on pattern

As far as I know, illustrator only uses oversampling which is basically the same as exporting at a larger size than scaling it down -thus it's rather a resource-heavy sugar coating. Also it's not entirely the anti-aliasing's fault but how transparency is composited. Like, two rectangles with an 50% ...

Re: How to Remove blank interstices on pattern

Hi. I prefer overlapping as the final solution to the gap issue. If openclipart was still up I could link you some examples on complex images. In a nutshell think of your paths as pieces of paper you glue toegether. You cannot glue paper pieces by their edges so you need either a "ducttape"...

Hi. I'd try fiddling with the rendering cache size, not sure if that has any effect. Judged by how disappearing objects are caused by that it might. Other than that, have experienced such issue when there was an "unreasonably" small gradient used inside the image. Check if there is such a ...

Re: Inkscape Tutorial for Engineers, 12 slides in PDF

Just a note from someone drafting with cad in a daily basis. Cad does have splines and can use either Bézier or B-splines, yet for practical purposes polylines are better. You can offset them keeping it parallel to the original, whereas splines have no such feature. In that regard spiro-spline is mo...

Re: Draw irregular shapes with parallel sides

Hi.

Apart from the fact that no two curved Bézier path segments can be parallel exactly -mathematically speaking- there were some hopes planted before on better joins. Have no idea what happened to that feature.

Re: cutting/segmenting a spiral?

Not the width (and not the bees for that matter) but the stroke-dasharray, like in Moini's extension.
Keeping the same stroke-dash ratio while altering their sum manually until they reach an amount (like twice as the starting value preferably) and back.

Then you are most probably not using the latest stabile version.

Switch to the most recent one now -or wait for a few months and go straight for version 1.0!

Re: save in original dimensions?

Hi. Look more into the document settings. The default template has a display unit in mm and scale factor is set to 1. In addition, inkscape runs at 96 dpi. Thus can easily lead to some mismatch if your page size is set by mm and rendered by a browser at 72 dpi. So, when you pull in that image: 1.: s...

Hi. Not much. If you learn inkscape you'll find illustrator an overpriced piece of software . Admittedly if you want to produce one-step print ready materials illustrator has an advantage.
