Re: cutting/segmenting a spiral?

Hi. Great tip! It would be nice if the abbreviations is spelled out completely first time used. For a beginner the letters LPE is just a group of “random” characters that don’t make any sense. If we spell out completely like this: LPE (Live Path Effects) the letters make more sense. The “improper” u...

Re: Only dots are printed and not the line

Hi.

Try saving as PDF and then print the PDF file.
Printing directly from Inkscape works like a charm here using Inkscape 0.92.4 on Windows 10.
( Works on my Linux boxes as well )

Re: Tangent lines?

Hi

Very Nice !!

"Difficult" to find in the "Render" extension group - might be worth making it's own "CAD_Tools" or something similar?

Might also be useful to catch input errors which now result in "math domain error"?

Nice Code!

Re: Unwanted duplicated nodes

Hi. Moini, by using your preferences file I still get the same result, the 8 node path turns into a 9 node path when moved. Even without duplicating the path this happens here. Are you "monitoring" the number of nodes in the status line? As the duplicate are on top of another node the dupl...

Re: Path outset problem

Hi

Interesting! I can confirm the same behavior on my system as well.
I use Inkscape 0.92.3 (2405546, 2018-03-11) on Win10.

When I set the outset preferences to 5px (pixels) i get an offset of 5mm.

Might be an "undocumented feature" (bug) in the current version?
