Re: Video: Inkscape Transparency

Few things are clearly explained to the new user. Inkscape's documentation is ... "okay" ... but it's generally not amazing. That's because the development team is the only staff available for documentation. Inkscape's help system is far from perfect. As much as I enjoy using the software,...

Left ruler not fully there

I'm having a small problem with the rules in Inkscape 0.46. Oddly, the top (left to right) ruler is normal and as it's always been. The ruler on the left side shows only a fraction of the original ruler. I can see some small tick marks but the numbers are no longer visible. I have installed 0.47 and...

Re: Print is not what I created!

I'm not a pro here... but I'm willing to offer a possible solution... I'd suggest exporting the .svg file to a .png and printing that. You'll likely have a very nice and very accurate print job. I've never really printed directly from Inkscape because I view this software as the creation platform. B...

Thanks, Micro.

Re: Inkscape water filter

Mm. Interesting. Filters in Inkscape are, of course, cool. I did a Google search and found http://chrisdesign.wordpress.com/filter-effects/ . The site has a few examples on the page. Each "download" is an SVG file with the filters already applied. I downloaded the SVG files. When loaded in...

Restaurant Menu update

I think adding a watermark is a great idea! Very professional looking! Here's an idea for a watermark - large Japanese characters - unobtrusive and tastefully done. Maybe the owner of the restaurant knows the Japanese symbols for the name of the restaurant. Would be a nice touch of branding your su...

Re: Restaurant Menu

What's the watermark? Looks like seaweed or something. (My not being able to identify it isn't a criticism--regardless of what it is it adds texture which I think is good). Exactly. I wanted it very "water-mark-like" without getting in the way of any text. But once one pulls away from the...

Yes. CorelDRAW supports pages and has done so for a number of years.

Re: Multiple Pages

Mm. I understand a lot better now. Inkscape's goal is to implement SVG standards . So Inkscape's development can only move as fast as SVG standards are established and confirmed. If the standards include animation then Inkscape might eventually support it. If SVG supported juggling clowns... Got it....
