Hi.

Please share your svg here so we can point out where it has the shape-rendering specified to show aliased edges.

Re: Circle function doesn't work.

Hi.

It does.

Check the fill and stroke attributes.
Opacity is lowered to 4%.
Fill has additional lowered alpha value.
Has no stroke.

Draws an arc from 0 to 71,390°.


Switch to outlines only rendering mode if you don't beleive your eyes -Ctrl+5 on the numpad twice.

Re: Bubble/Crystal Ball Effect from Image

Hi. An advantage of svg filters is the live rendering -can update the base image and generate variants at a set resolution. Which is also somewhat of a downside as well. Rendering gets laggy once filters are applied and most likely you will end up using a raster copy of the filtered image, thus aban...

Re: How do I cut off the edge of a blurred object?

Hi.

Using mesh gradient would be the obvious way to start instead of using of a combination of blurring.
Although it depends on the look you are after. Production-wise using some sort-of halftoning with flat fills only may work better.

Re: filtering guide

Hi. As far as I remember there was a heart-shape used to cut a group of objects depicting the mentioned part. Which was a low-poly texture you can generate by neighboring triangles, yet to avoid any gaps it was rebuilt from overlapping paths. Due to the overlapping, those were 100% opaque and each h...

Re: GRADIENT BANDING pdf/x1a printing issues

Hi! Tricky question. It is a huge downside of inkscape -both the print ready colour handling and grandient banding. The options are *very* limited. You can export to a png image and add a gradient in a raster editor program which has an option of using a built-in dithering. In inkscape you can use f...

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...

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.

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% ...

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"...

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...

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.
