Re: linked line with different color or clone above high contrast background

You're not giving up so easily if you want something special... I like that attitude ;-). Thx. :D All this, you have to do only once. Now, I think your colleagues can easily start using Inkscape... :-). Thank you very much for this detailed and interesting explanation! I attached a file containing ...

Re: linked line with different color or clone above high contrast background

Well, now you are an advanced user ;-). Still learning... use inkscape now ~8 years for scientific publications but things like this (line-background) do make it hard for me to convince (unexperienced) colleagues :roll:. What is tricky there? Select the path and click on the color palette to change...

Re: linked line with different color or clone above high contrast background

@HoWilIs, I still haven't completely understood and reproduced your process about LPE linked clones and background and second extension, unlinking, relinking, cloning, uncloning, etc... It's just to complicated for me ;-). I thought there must be a way with "Pattern along path" to get the...

Re: linked line with different color or clone above high contrast background

Btw. would this extension be useful here: https://inkscape.org/en/~jabiertxof/%E2%98%85unlink-lpe (I haven't read everything closely, so I may be way off, but wanted to mention) Dear Moini, Yes this is really useful. With this extension I can 'unlink' the 'background path' from the original and rea...

Re: linked line with different color or clone above high contrast background

I'm afraid that's how it works. Or you could try the xml editor to link the appropriate path but then again the solution is getting more and more complex&complicated. For me is now the easiest solution the following: After Grouping and duplicating the original, I remove the path effect for the ...

Re: linked line with different color or clone above high contrast background

:!: But one problem is left :arrow: : After duplicating the original line together with the background-clone, the background is still 'linked' to the original! The easiest way I found to resolve this is deleting the Path-Effect on the duplicated 'background' and reassign it to the also duplicated p...

Re: linked line with different color or clone above high contrast background

@HoWilIs, if I understood your question correctly, in short: you basically need an outlined path. You could realize this with the LPE "Pattern along path". You basically pattern a rectangle along your desired path and give it a white stroke and a black fill. You even can add a marker at t...

Re: linked line with different color or clone above high contrast background

Attached an example with cloning. Parent path was grouped together with the two clones, so if you enter the group (Ctrl+Enter) and select all inside after (Ctrl+A), you can select the parent by deselecting the two visible clones (Shift+Clicking). Only problem with it is that no markers can be added...

Re: linked line with different color or clone above high contrast background

Hi. Cloning "should" do the job. If you set no fill and * undefined stroke * to rhe parent, you can make clones of it with different stroke colours set. Simply put the parent on top, a clone with a black stroke below, and another clone with a wider white stroke at the bottom. Only problem...

linked line with different color or clone above high contrast background

Hello, I use Inkscape to make pictures with descriptive text as shown in the attachment. Most of these pictures include background with high contrast colors as I tried to illustrate with the included white and dark rectangles. When I now draw a line from my text to a point I want to describe in the ...
