Re: How can I change the Objects… dialog icon so it can be different from Layers' one?

I understand it is not a complicated change: make a dialog-objects icon, add to the set, edit the verb. I was under the impression the edited verbs.cpp still has to be included in a new build. Edit: And a new <bind> ( and update to keys, if a shortcut is added). (?) http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/ind...

Re: How can I change the Objects… dialog icon so it can be different from Layers' one?

Celita has filed a report indicating the following: I had checked the verbs.cpp file and there is a mistake: both verbs for Objects and Layers dialogs have the same icon defined: new DialogVerb(SP_VERB_DIALOG_OBJECTS, "DialogObjects", N_("Object_s..."), N_("View Objects"...

Re: How can I change the Objects… dialog icon so it can be different from Layers' one?

There is not any easy way.
Looks like you have already filed a report, so perhaps all that is left is to make a unique icon.

Re: outline remaining after clip

I can't tell from the screenshot if you are seeing just the "bounding-box" (the outline indicating an object is selected) of if there is something else you are seeing.

Please share the svg file.

Re: Optimized SVG "could not be saved."

Well, you don't need to resize the pace to fit the artwork, but that is the easy way to get the artwork inside the page boundaries.

The artwork in the uploaded svg is way outside the page.

Re: text flow into frame

Spaces (via spacebar) between the letters make the letters into words. Flow text wraps text at word breaks.

Line height can also be regarded as spacing between baselines.

Re: text flow into frame

The above should work. Flow breaks text between words.

A word with no (breaks like the original text) will be truncated.

Re: Announcing first *official* forum

I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed... I'm not finding basic features at the new forum:
    No clear way to embed attached images inline.
    No clear way to hotlink gifs from dropbox.*
    No clear way to delete a post.

*Workaround using YT embed widget.

I don't recall exactly, but I probably took a screen capture of the design, opened it in Inkscape and traced it.

Re: PDF adds black box, doesn't contain vector graphics

Digging deeper into the file, it looks like it was saved as a PDF then edited again in Inkscape... there is a plethora of groups, clips and masks not needed for this design. Other items I keep in mind: Save a COPY as pdf, so the original SVG is retained for editing. After tracing bitmaps, delete the...

Seems my NLE proportionally scales any imported format to fit height or width.

Re: PDF adds black box, doesn't contain vector graphics

Some things I like to keep in mind...

Filtered objects will get rasterized on saving as PDF.

I'd try to find/make vector versions of all elements that need to scale cleanly.

Working at production size can show issues before exporting/saving.

A literal interpretation of the text. I'm inclined to give the OP the benefit of the doubt, considering the well-formed description.
