Re: add pattern to repository

About CLOSED & SOLVED: other forum and mail sites have them; therefore my insistence. I apologize. Comparing copy/paste with import: : I have tried to copy & paste, but the item "pasted" appears on a new canvas, and the first one, the original, disappears behind it. Both methods pr...

Re: add pattern to repository

Before looking into your way of doing things, Brynn: items can be put in a list methodically by using either numbers or bullets, but Inkscape Forum does not accept bullets. So I am looking for some substitute symbol.

Re: add pattern to repository

Your experience has helped nicely. Here are the steps I have taken; you can tell me if they concord with yours. Made a personal patterns folder (Gpatterns) and put new SVG patterns there. If I need a particular pattern, I import it to put on the desktop. Now it's available for the fill. An interesti...

Re: add pattern to repository

One more bit to tell you. Opened a star drawing. Did an object to pattern. Saved that pattern/object. Opened another image (rectangle) where I did a fill with pattern. In Fill & Stroke located a number that was my pattern with another name (number). Clicked, and the rectangle filled with the pat...

Re: add pattern to repository

Hello again! Questions for you. 1) I know how to log out but not to close a query/post. 2) I cannot locate a cursor for an insertion of CLOSED or SOLVED before the subject name. How do you do it? I have seen some and wonder how it is done. 3) Brynn, you have experience doing copy/save and put a patt...

pattern transfer

The site https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/39705/cutting-multiple-lines-curves-with-a-closed-path-in-inkscape made me want to clarify and complete Milazzi and Gibellini's explanations. My so-called pattern transfer example will consist of a blue rectangle, red ellipse, and the ermine...

Re: add pattern to repository

Moini and Brynn, permit me to interject. I have spent all day still looking for a way to put the pattern in the repository, and I still can't do it. I have been able to use the XML editor and from there went to Notepad Plus. There I am overwhelmed by the multiplicity of data lines; I have no idea of...

add pattern to repository

Using an existing drawing, I have added it to share > patterns > patterns.svg.h (Why the h I don't know.) The pattern, multipointstar , fails to appear in Inkscape's list when clicking Fill & Stroke patterns. Is some item missing as you examine the attached Notepad file newpattern.png ?

My so-called pattern transfer example will consist of a blue rectangle, red ellipse, and the ermine pattern. Draw a rectangle (blue) Inside it, draw a small ellips...

Re: my spiral is abnormal

It's interesting what you say about the oval and spiral both having a double contour. My fingers seem to be a little too fanciful. I am going to watch and try to keep them in check with my next attempt. When I have a stroke before my eyes I just do the stroke-to-path. But I didn't have a stroke befo...

Re: my spiral is abnormal

Am attaching bluepolygon.svg . It shows that the spaces between copies are not all identical; also, the patterns are either doubled next to each other or riding partially on top. A second file I am attaching is yellowstar.svg ; the spaces there are OK but the patterns here overlap too. Drop me a lin...

Re: my spiral is abnormal

I don't know what is meant by sharing the SVG file; I have shared the problem with an ING file as you can see. I have a few SVG files but they are irrelevant. Druban's multiple suppositions find me perplexed. I am a "newbie" without your experience to tell you what you need. Rather than ti...

my spiral is abnormal

In LPE pattern along path I have used Inkscape's native spiral shape; it's a simple stroke. As a pattern I also used Inkscape's ellipse as a circle. The resulting combination is an odd spiral. The initial pattern circle is a full shape but the path circles lack this fill as you can see in the attach...

Re: trace bitmap (Inkscape 0.92)

When you ask to see the SVG file, which file do you mean when you say THE svg file? I have ready for you 3 PNG files that were done with a pattern called mulltipointstar.svg, on line, rectangle and spiral paths. Please let me know. Anything else? I'll try my best.

Re: trace bitmap (Inkscape 0.92)

I am not sure that what I have added will satisfy your requirements for an SVG file. I imported the multipointstar.svg to 0.92.4 LPE to use as the pattern. Then I made the three items as starline.png, starrect.png, and starspiral.png. As you can see, the paths are not what is expected. Also, you hav...

OK Moini, the first time I open Trace Bitmap, no problem, dialog is there. If I close and reopen, only Trace Bitmap title appears, no dialog. I have tried with several file extensions, SVG too shows that problem. Have even done Object to Path with the images before the Trace Bitmap. Interesting thou...

For your information I have added some attachments. Roadrunner.PNG shows a nice spiral of the critter; it was realized with Genera...
