Hi all, I need to find the intersection point between a rectangle and a line as shown in the following sketch. inkscape.jpg How can this be done? I don't need to create a node on this point or something else, I just need the coordinates where the line and the rectangle intersect for processing outsi...

Merge differently sized drawings to DIN A0 pages?

Hello all, I have multiple SVG drawings of different size. Now I want to plot them on an A0 plotter. Several of my drawings could fit on one DIN A0 page instead of one DIN A0 page for each drawing. Is there any tool that takes some drawings (or their PDF export) as input and arranges them to DIN A0 ...

tylerdurden, thank you for the detailed bug report! I already had a curious look at it ;-)

Re: Using symbol from symbol library has different size than original symbol

Thank you all for your replies. tylerdurden's posts gave me the solution: I ended up copying default_px.svg to default.svg (in the Inkscape template directory). Created my diamond, made it a symbol and everything is fine. Same size as the original when added using the symbol library. No problem with...

Re: Using symbol from symbol library has different size than original symbol

Thanks tylerdurden, but I forgot to mention: The video was done on a clean install of Inkscape in a virtual machine (german windows with english as selected language, maybe that somehow influences the units). I would really expect Inkscape to handle necessary conversions internally. Guess I should f...

Re: Using symbol from symbol library has different size than original symbol

Sorry for my late reply, didn't find the time for Inkscape. Today I recreated my diamond symbol from scratch, completely using Inkscape 0.92.1 r15371. However I still have the same problem: The original diamond is larger than the diamond added to the symbols library to be used from there. I did a vi...

Re: Using symbol from symbol library has different size than original symbol

Thank you for your replies!
I am using 0.92 revision 15371, but I am not sure which revision I used to create the original diamond. Will try to recreate the diamond from scratch tomorrow.

Re: Using symbol from symbol library has different size than original symbol

Thanks, I am curiously looking forward to that! (While I understand the difference between px and mm, I don't understand how this can be a problem when only working inside Inkscape). I meanwhile tested your solution proposal, running into a new problem ): I did all the scaling and when I now add the...

Re: Using symbol from symbol library has different size than original symbol

tylerdurden, thank you for your reply. I have no doubt this will work, but I yet don't understand why and how exactly you got the scaling factor of 3.77953? If I open my diamond2.svg and check the page properties, it has a scale of 1. If I create a new inkscape file/page and check the page propertie...

Using symbol from symbol library has different size than original symbol

I just created my own symbol library, but when I use the first (and currently only) symbol from my symbol library, then its size is different and I also can't change e.g. the stroke width. This is my original symbol @ 1000% zoom: http://imgh.us/diamond_orig_1000.jpg And this is my symbol taken from ...

Thank you all for your information on how this diamond can be drawn and what causes the display problems. I ended up following tylerdurden's way, just great! Sometimes things can be quite easy once one knows how to do it ;-) For the records, this is the "perfect" diamond (black) over my re...

Both have the same endpoint, but when zooming in on the connection between these two curves, it does not look fine: http://imgh.us/demo1.jpg Note the gap between both curves.
