Re: Haaaaaaalp! Saved SVG file opens EMPTY!

Hi. Good thing it opens. Corrupted files usually mean part of the svg is chopped off where you may recover some parts before. Hard to guess without the file. If the damage wasn"t a large data loss the file size should be nearly the same as before. Saving often over the same file =/= backup save...

Re: Changing transparent objects to colored

What happens if there are gradients? In fact it is pretty easy to answer - one or more new gradients will be created, based on overlapping and transparency. Just wondering, two semi-transparent gradients overlaying would produce - many more gradients? What if both were radial gradients. Oh and what...

Yes, that was the one. Only issue I saw in 0.92 is the stroke width displayed in different units at the bottom.

If it was a full px based document I'd change the scale factor to 1 and set even px values for the document size.

Re: Units

Hi. There are two options to change the units (Shift+Ctrl+D) -document size units, and "display units". I suspect you need to set the latter instead. For the decimal marks there are spinbox options you have to go by, but there are other limits as well. In the preferences (Shift+Ctrl+P) svg...

Re: Can Inksape deal with more than 10,000 objects?

It is possible but for practical reasons you need to optimize your drawing. Like this was a mess because I didn't care much and just duplicated objects all over the place. However with duplicating the style definitions are repeated with each object. If your objects are only 2-noded paths with a stra...

Ok, refined the hatching concept now it really takes three steps ⋅ import image, ⋅ create raster copy, ⋅ trace bitmap. Although it's a bit resource heavy for the tracing as it can likely end up with thousands of nodes. (On a side note the " brave ones " need t...

So, can anyone tell me, how to make a silhouette of the below Trooper image where the operation takes less than 10 seconds and 4 mouse clicks using Inkscape? Sandtrooper.jpg Depends on your setup. Here, have a hatched trooper: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rqsskmvoz08vx0r/trper.svg?dl=0

Re: Bezier: Chaos when joining start and end node

Welcome aboard!

Check the tool's settings
-set regular Bézier path, and shape:none.
Probably you have triangle:in instead which is supposed to work with open paths.

Re: Breaking a path

Hi. Your second image shows that the path has an open segment at one point, that's why you see that two "crossing" on top after splitting two nodes. So on your path, first select all nodes and connect unconnected nodes -or press Ctrl++ to close the path-, then select the two nodes you sele...

Welcome aboard! The danger is real as of 0.48 that was the main reason of crashing -timing out due to garbage collector hanging while dealing with hundreds or thousands of unused defs.

You already did:

Zoom in so that the width will be larger than the samples used and try pulling the mouse at almost a horizontal direction;
then lower the fixation a tad bit and check again.

Re: Rounded Lines?

Hi.

Set round cap style and it should work.
(If that is supposed to be a two-noded path with one segment only, stroke set and no fill.)

Re: Artefacts with calligraphy tool

Made a test video here.

"Jiggles" appear mostly when the pulling angle of the pen is close to the angle of the nib and inkscape cannot decide if the next sample should follow the rest in the right or the left side of the "core path".

Re: Artefacts with calligraphy tool

Can confirm the issue, can recall with fixation and caps set to 0 it's even worse (try to draw a single dot).
Not the random jiggles but the hole-behave sticks out that way.

Welcome aboard! Select all the paths (Ctrl+A), switch to the node tool and merge double nodes. Then, combine the paths (Ctrl+K). It should lead to a closed path you can set a fill to with the fill and stroke panel (Shift+Ctrl+F). If the "holes" don't come out right, you need to switch the ...
