Re: File-Export PNG Image = Newbie Blues

I have seen this -- either a black background, or the whole image black in a file manager (Windows Explorer) (and heard about it in other file managers), and I often saw it on ImageShack (when I was using it 6 to 10 years ago). Neither one of which could really be thought of as high quality, althoug...

Re: How do you remove line that prints with the stuff i print?

I don't have a printer, so I can't really help. But I find it interesting that opening the SVG file, "24" is shown as a mirror image. It's entirely backwards! I assume you did not flip it, because I can't think of any reason for it. But I also don't know how that could be part of the probl...

Re: Sometimes I copy paste color codes in Fill and Stroke panel results in different color codes

Ok, I've checked all the way back to 0.48, and it works fine. So it must have been fixed a really long time ago. So it doesn't seem like this would be the op's problem. But his description sounds exactly like what I used to see. Edit Actually I'm on a new computer since the last time I saw this prob...

Re: Sometimes I copy paste color codes in Fill and Stroke panel results in different color codes

Oh, indeed, it has been fixed! I've been pasting the whole code in there for so long it's become a habit. But now I see that it is possible!

Do we know which version notalentgeek is using? Of course I have no idea when it was fixed. But I have a few older versions around, so I'll test.

Re: Unset problems with Elipse

Somehow you have managed to unset something, which is probably not what you want. The Unset fill or stroke is only useful for a couple uncommon features. If you don't know what those are, then you probably don't need to use Unset. (It probably happened when you clicked the question mark button in th...

Re: How to draw many parallel lines within a box

I don't think the cutter would recognize the pattern as vector paths. Unless you mean to convert the pattern back to object first? I think the simplest solution is -- draw a line -- duplicate -- move (possibly snap to grid or guides) -- duplicate -- move -- etc. Not necessarily the fastest. Plus, if...

Re: Sometimes I copy paste color codes in Fill and Stroke panel results in different color codes

Oh, I can absolutely confirm that typing the color code into the hexcode field does not work. When you type the first character, the field fills up automatically the rest of the original code. It has the same effect as if you had highlighted the first character and changed it. It's entirely impossib...

Re: CMYK drives me crazy

Inkscape doesn't not have CMYK support. But Scribus does. So finish drawing your image in Inkscape, and import into Scribus to add the CMYK color. I think there's a tutorial, let me find it....

Re: Can't Change Image Aspect Ratio

The SVG file would be best for troubleshooting.

If the object you're trying to scale is an imported raster image (such as TIFF), then you realize it will pixelate when it's scaled, right? Also, you won't be able to scale any parts of it. It's all or nothing, since it's not a vector object.

When I've searched for similar things on OCL, I usually can only find line art which has be auto-traced, meaning that it's not made of a single path.

Re: Saving as SVG question

Yes and no. When you first opened Inkscape, you probably noticed a rectangle in the middle of the canvas? That's the page border. Depending on where and how you use the file/image, you may or may not see the space outside the page border. Some people like to keep helpful parts of the drawing there, ...

Re: Text object missing when SVG opened by other software

I wouldn't be too worried about Windows Explorer not displaying this or that. As a file manager, there are several SVG features which it will not display (and might never display). Filters are another example of something it won't display. But the browser problem can indeed be cleared up by not usin...

Re: Editing curved text that has been transformed to an object on a path

You can delete those text-paths, and just type new text with Inkscape. It looks like a relatively basic font, and you likely already have a similar one. Actually it looks like that whole logo could be made originally with Inkscape. You just need to find similar fonts (if you don't already have some).

Re: Text Spacing Vertically

Possibly snapping to a grid. But you'd have to start with each letter as a text object. If it's only some specific text, possibly could use tiled clones. But if you need it to work with random text, cloning doens't make sense. It wouldn't be what kerning was made for, and kerning would not necessari...

Do you mean that you want each letter to be upright? But still on a curved path?

I'm trying to reconcile this with your other message about vertical text. Are both messages trying to achieve the same thing, in different ways?
