Re: Moving layers in Object dialog : strange behaviour

... PS : I tried to make to make a gif capture of the problem in order to post it here but it turned out that when the dialog box is inside Screen2Gif, ShareX (and other softs) frame, the drag'n'drop is no more possible. Same behaviour with these screen recorders and Layer dialog box in Gimp... Yes...

Re: Printing to 100% scale

No worries... it's probably just a communication/translation thing. If I want to see an A4 portion of a much larger graphic that is scaled to final size, I'd just selectively position the artwork over the A4 document boundary and save as PDF.

Re: Printing to 100% scale

@tays01s,

Do you want to :
Output an image that spans multiple pages? (poster tiles)
Output a larger page with the same size artwork? (more whitespace)

There's a couple ways to make "Pattern along Path"... the LPE (live path effect) might be more useful. http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Paths-LivePathEffects-PatternAlongPath.html http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Extensions-GenerateFromPath.html#Extensions-PatternAl...

Re: Paragraph line spaces

Looks like inner line height setting is active.

I'd try selecting the flowed text and click the question-mark button to unset the inner line heights.

The sub-path that does not clip may need to be reversed before combining.

Re: Cutting a part off a letter

There are two common ways: 1) Use a copy of the large circle to hide the unwanted portion of the 'o' with "clipping. http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Clip-Clipping.html 2) Use a copy of the large circle to trim-off the unwanted portion of the 'o' with a "path operation" (b...

Re: Paragraph line spaces

Maybe you have seen this? There are three types of text objects in Inkscape. The first is regular text. The second is flowed text; this is a text object that includes a rectangular frame. The third is linked-flowed text. This is a text object where the text is flowed into a separate arbitrary shape ...

Re: Help on Oval Sign

Sheetcam only recognizes paths, so the text objects need to be converted and the stroke on the big ellipse needs to be converted. There is an extra ellipse that can be deleted. The oval and text objects can then be unioned, then the horse head can be unioned to the rest. https://dl.dropbox.com/s/kti...

For me, there are two yellow flags:
    1) doing someone's homework
    2) providing copyrighted files ready for mass-production

No problem showing people how to use tools though... With the suggestion they do something original.

Re: designing a font

I seem to get similar results.

Maybe some rounding errors involved as Inkscape writes text sizes explicitly in px?

Re: wavy text jumps around

Thanks for the file.

I could not replicate the issue using the provided preferences.xml, so that is not it... not exclusively, anyway.

I notice the preferences were set with small icons/tools. Maybe this is display/gpu related? I'm using 1920x1080 native on a laptop.

Re: wavy text jumps around

Interesting. Does this also occur with nudging using the modifier keys? (Alt, Shift)

Julia, Xav or Moini, would you care to post (or send me) your preferences.xml? I'd like to try to replicate this.

Re: wavy text jumps around

One blunt-hammer approach is to rename the preferences.xml to preferences.OLD. (check the system section of preferences for location)

Inkscape will generate a new, default preferences file. That could give us a clue.

The artwork (nice, btw) is fairly small... you might check the settings for steps in the preferences. The arrow keys (nudge) may be set for large increments. Below are arbitrary settings , just to illustrate where they are in the preferences panel. I don't suggest copying them. Preferences_(Shift+Ct...

Re: Problems exporting svg to dxf laser cutter

That looks hand drawn.

I'd use the gear extension in Inkscape to make a proper gear, then export to dxf using polyline.
