Re: XML measurement units

It could be the object has been transformed (scale, rotate, move, etc.), in those cases, the original object parameters may still show in the xml path, but the resulting values will be displayed in the Inkscape panels.

Re: Inkscape scales up by 25% - Grrrrrr

Howdy, I often send Inkscape files to Epilog cutters via PDF without scaling issues. I understand the problem, but I'm unsure why your result is different. I tested opening files (the same image Inkscape SVG and PDF) in Scribus: SVG was scaled as you describe, PDF was not. My workflow is often CAD>D...

Re: Part of image not showing up when saving as an EPS

That image requires having the clipped element (rocket body) as the highest group in the z-order. Otherwise, the clip affects any other higher element. I really don't know why, yet... I tried the same bits in other graphics with inconsistent results. To inspect the image, I started by deleting eleme...

Re: Cropping an image - exactly

I generally do that type of operation on raster images in GIMP with the eraser, save as a PNG with transparency, then bring into Inkscape.

If the imported photo is a vector image, the objects can sometimes be moved to a layer and the other bits hidden or deleted.

Re: Block of text is missing when I export to bitmap

I exported one embedded image and re-imported. It holds scale, so I would get the colors right in GIMP, then re-import the image to Inkscape, then mask it or knockout the background.

YMMV

Re: Block of text is missing when I export to bitmap

^^Agree...

There are a lot of extraneous bits that need cleaning up. Generally, "flowed" text is not going to render well in many conversions.

I don't know why the raster/image elements are scaling outside of Inkscape, but will explore further.

It might be helpful to note that since svg is text, complex or large patterns can easily be processed in a spreadsheet and pasted into the xml file. (Scripting is also an option.)

Re: Combining paths

Maybe set the fill to close large gaps, then zoom out 5% and try, zoom out again, try... until it fills. Might be ok, might be very bad, depending on how big the gaps are.

Re: I need to save an svg with some transparency as an EPS.

I don't think there will be much you can do with transparency in eps... not with inkscape anyway. If the image content is getting rasterized on save (filters, etc.), perhaps export to a png which will support transparency. There might be an export to GIMP available to carryover layers and other bits...

The values are R, G, B... each value can be 0 - 255. So, you see the blue value is 180... change it to 2XX and the other values to 1xx and see (as I already did in the workspace).

Can't hurt to try...
