Re: Basic question about 3D graphic file conversion

A 3D file format is used for storing information about 3D models. You may have heard of the most popular formats STL, OBJ, FBX, COLLADA etc This. Saddens me. http://files.explosm.net/comics/Rob/trebek.jpg On the bright side Druban could take it better. My guess is that 3D would mix pretty well with...

Re: Select objects with similar size

All you had to do really is use the Find and replace dialog (Ctrl F) and type in ' v 0' and search in properties (the default is usually text ). Nice found! That also cleaned up another 150 defs, making the file smaller, which might be a goal: so far a 1MB file has become a 129KB file, I estimate y...

Re: Select objects with similar size

Hi. For this specific project you may find a solution besides the previous requests where each path would take some analysation on their sizes. The small paths seems to be paths with 0 length. In the xml they look like "m 609,210 0,0" -that 0,0 is probably good enough to spot them all. At ...

Re: designing a font

Thank you for your interest! Currently got stuck with almost anything but everything.

Surely it lacked develo...

Re: Water

Thank you but I might have jumped too soon this time.
The cut line-ellipse can be non-tangent to the sphere/circle as well.
With such a height/width ratio on the ellipse I'd expected a view from a narrower angle, which would result in tangents.

Nice diagram! Just a note, even if it's for "eyeballing" an acceptable look. The cutline of the two spheres being an ellipse, right. Cutline is the same as if the spheres were split into two pieces by a plane. Now, let's look at the sphere on the left alone with that cutline=circle and ell...

can you use the fonts in other programs? MSWord for example? Yes, it works there, but in Inkscape the fonts don't appear. Should I uninstall and reinstall inkscape? Hi. If that means *some* fonts are appearing, some are not -that's most likely not a font installing issue but the problem of the font...

You could edit your drawing in simple steps so that the objects overlap and there is no gap at all.

Re: Transparency gradient based on color?

Hi.

You can use filtering for that. Setting the layer to screen blending mode would be "close enough".

If not, try applying this filter on the objects grouped together:

Re: black rectangles that show up in the icon preview

Hi.

Usually flowed texts are rendered as plain black since that's not an svg feature yet. This case it's not so obvious. Would need to examine the svg file.
Hard to tell from a screenshot. Maybe the drawing too complex could also be a factor but I have some doubts about it.

Re: Recreate embossed logo for vector/pdf

Hi. Filters are essentially px based as they affect the rendered image output and not the underlying objects -like the path effects. Unfortunately the pdf format doesn't support filters, therefore they are always represented by a raster double the best. If you want to go full vectors, there are basi...

Don't forget to aim for an svg. Illustrator should be able to save straight to svg.

Honestly they look cartoony and "fine" in small size only.
The perspective and the shadows are way off. If your goal was to achieve a realistic look, I'd suggest using some basic perspective drawing constructions.

Re: Resizing the handle points in the UI

Hi.

Not a solution but you might find the "show handles" path effect useful -available in th current stabile release.
With that you can set a custom node handle size.
