Re: Overlay mode objects Inkscape

Hi. The overlay filter uses background image as an input. That's resource heavy, as far as I know that's why inkscape needs a special tag added for the renderer. To make it work, add a new layer and set its blending mode to anything custom. Then you can turn that layer off, the "per object"...

Re: If you could choose 1 thing that must be implemented or fixed in Inkscape 1.0, what would it be?

Getting quite off topic. As far as I could see there is no motivation in groundbreaking changes. Like intel holding back innovation. Still we are using font specs from the eighties. Using pdf as the printers format. And working on the draft for the next svg specs for a decade? Like, " what if &...

Re: Exporting PNG - Blurry

Hi. Guessing not much can be done about it -within inkscape. For small images, this thread can help. A general approach is oversampling the image at the export and use a raster editor for downsampling =exporting at a larger size, then resizing to the intended size in gimp or alike, where you can set...

Re: If you could choose 1 thing that must be implemented or fixed in Inkscape 1.0, what would it be?

What about a new improved Vector Graphics file format ? I also think that a new and open format would be the best but it won't happen with the inkscape project. Which was, built upon the svg specs and intended to be the closest to it -abandoning sodipodi. So it's quite surprising to have gradient m...

Re: Exporting PNG - Blurry

Hi. If anti-aliasing is switched on in the document's settings (it is by default; Shift+Ctrl+D), then it should come out "blurry" -anti-aliased. Semi-filled pixels are rendered with an intermediate colour based upon the renderer's calculations. Thus no matter what "as per se", ev...

Re: Multiple text boxes selected but only one affected by font changes

I'd guess they don't have the same styling there is some difference between in-line and t-span? That's what I remember from css.

Re: isolating blending in objects - help

You are welcome!

As a workaround you can move those objects onto a new layer and hide the layer visinility.
Then it will render in the filter but not on their original layer. Which is a bit unexpected but at the moment it works.

Re: isolating blending in objects - help

Filters can have basically 2 inputs: the object's filled area or a "raster double" of the background objects. A third "option" is, to use the image filter primitive to pull in one object from the svg file at a time. If you are after custom blending between two separate objects on...

Re: Gradient interpolation types

As far as I could experience there is only a linear one for gradients -that would be Coon on meshes? Not sure if there would be other options with the svg specs (checked here , there is no mentioning) -browsers not render meshes either so Bicubic is out of the testing game. This is side related -the...

Re: [solved] White lines around trace of bitmap.

Guess that's what you get when you render the image in smooth and not blocky mode. Probably that rendering issue is unrelated to any following bitmap tracing. However there is no guarantee that an automatic trace will come out with the exact same borders as the original raster image and having no &q...

Re: Can't edit nodes

Hi.

The red x indicates a raster image. Judged by the file size, it's embedded into your svg.
You'll need to trace it first to be able to edit it as a vector object. Either redraw it manually or use the trace bitmap option under the path menu.

Archicad creates an .lck file once you open a document, which then triggers the program to give an option to open the file with executive access or not by the second person to prevent saving over. Inkscape never had that feature as far as I know. All I can think is trying to use symbols, which may h...

Certainly flexibility lacks big time. On my laptop screen when the inkscape window is on the left or right half of the screen, the H box is missing. Too bad that is the easiest way to set up screen recording and then I'm forced not to use that feature or to make unnecessary moves -which may work or ...

I set that to the default 96 dpi screen resolution -even that can take too much time when dealing with filters.

Re: Layer modes difficulties

It can be corrected if you add a composite:in filter primitive to the filter chain. Guess it's a rendering bug.

In general.
But honestly after opening your file can't see the glitch at the moment. Testing.

Edit: attaching a test example.
