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: Hi Everyone I am New Here.

What smells like spam is usually spam, the links can pop up later.

I confess, I missed it on the other topic until Lazur pointed it out.

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.

Re: Inkscape opens blank file, Firefox opens OK

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.

I would: Make the page size the same pixel dimensions as the video. Locate the text to the "lower-third" or wherever you want. Export the PNG using the page as the export size. (Ensure the pixel-count/dpi matches the video in the export dialog.) LT1.veg__-_VEGAS_Pro_14.0_2019-07-30_09-21-2...

Re: Draw irregular shapes with parallel sides

I would use duplicate and outset operations.

If you have a preferred increment, you can set that in the preferences dialog.

Here I'm making a few, and I can copy/paste the ones I want, or delete the ones I don't.
