Re: How to AlignVerticalCenter to selection area?

I can test this, but manually setting it in the GUI dialog doesn't really help my case, as I have some code actions that align by page, and require other code actions that need to be aligned by "selection area" within the same command line.

Re: How to AlignVerticalCenter to selection area?

I use it to vertically center text within a rectangle.

I select a rectangle, I select text. I choose "selection area", then press the align vertical center button and the text centers inside my box.

Is there a different way to vertically center text within a box automatically?

Re: countersheets extension (counters, cards, mail merge from CSV)

Hi Pelle, Great extension!. I'm very excited to try. I have been working with Inkscape command lines, and have become very frustrated with the inability to pass values on the command line. It seems I may be able to pass values with your extension and a CSV file. Here are the 3 things I'm trying to a...

How do I export a 24-bit PNG?

Hi,

When I export my document it is being exported as 8-bit. How do I make Inkscape export PNG as 24-bit w/ transparency?

Any help is much appreciated.

Re: How to free rotate an object programmatically?

Hi Moini,

Thank you for your reply. How would I load the values from a file via command line to pass to the transform function? I don't see any Inkscape documentation for this procedure.

How to free rotate an object programmatically?

Hi, I am trying to rotate an object X degrees. I would like to use the command line interface, but I only see ObjectRotate90, ObjectRotate90CCW. In addition, it is my understanding that I can't pass values through verbs. So I couldn't even do FreeRotate=X even if this verb existed... Does anybody ha...

Re: Can I merge a path into an envelope via an extension by way of the Inkscape command line?

My process above required GUI to be launched because of the -z tag not supporting inkscape verbs. This was extremely annoying and forced me to run my scripts through a GUI. This slows down the process considerably. I stumbled upon a workaround that works great! Instead of using a full GUI, I launch ...
