I updated the feature request with an idea for fuzzy selection for selecting objects with same size which could also extend to the Select Same Fill Colour option. Take a look and add your thoughts!

Re: Select objects with similar size

The SVG was created in Processing with a modified version of the following sketch https://www.openprocessing.org/sketch/694218 It's PDF and SVG export libraries probably do need some work. Mostly I was suggesting by my example the combining of the paths (which are in little pieces in order to perhap...

I've never heard of putting specifically extension requests in the bug tracker. But it could be added just as a general feature request. Who knows, maybe some developer would want to make it a native feature? Here's the new bug tracker: https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inbox/issues Thanks, I'll definite...

Re: Select objects with similar size

I don't know about removal, but you can join the nodes that overlap, to get real curves, instead of many disconnected lines. Thanks! That extension looks like it'll be very useful, especially as I plan to use a plotter to draw these images. I remember a couple of users asking about an extension to ...

Select objects with similar size

Is there any way to select objects based on their size? I know that there are already functions for selecting objects with the same colour and stroke, but I have a document with lots of small objects that I'd like to remove.

Document attached.

I'm trying to get inkscape blend modes recognised in Firefox and Chrome but like many I've noticed that the way that Inkscape does it (via filters) isn't recognised in browsers.

Is there a way to change interpolation types for gradients in Inkscape? At the moment only two types of interpolation (or smooth) are available, Coons and Bicubic, and even these are only available when using the gradient mesh tool.

Re: Convert fill to stroke

Hi. For efficient plotting you would want a continuous line, the plotter would then not need to lift the pen which slow down the plotting. Easiest way to add hatching which is a continuous line is to use the extensions made for the Eggbot plotter. Eggbot Overview Link to the extensions: Extensions ...

I'm using the Inkscape/Silhouette extension to use a Silhouette vinyl cutter as a platting machine. It's really great at cutting outlines but I now want to use it to fill in shapes. To do this I imagine I would have to convert the fill into a series of strokes that the pen can follow. Is there a way...
