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.

Re: cutting/segmenting a spiral?

Lazur, you probably know what they are called mathematically etc. spirals.png Tricky question. With the divergence of 1 those spirals are Archimedean spirals. If the divergence was higher, they would be logarithmic spirals. The overlayed dash pattern along the path describe perpendicular line segme...

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...

Re: How useful is Inkscape if my ultimate goal is to learn adobe illustrator?

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. But as far as basic drawing/Bézier path editing goes, inkscape is more user friendly. Hence you may not want to...

Re: Delete StrokeStyle:Markers pattern

Hi. Try file/cleanup document or file/vacuum defs. They both do the same but the jargon changed between versions. Assumably you are using an outdated version, as inkscape 0.48 had bugs where tons of unused defs were generated by simple editing. May suggest to use the most recent stabile build (we ar...

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: 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...

Note that the mentioned gap issue is not inkscape-related, every renderer fails to fill those up by definition.

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