Re: Connect intersecting lines

Here's the video which can be used under any circumstances, to join 2 paths at their intersection. https://inkscapecommunity.com/jd/vids/tp.mp4 Here's a much easier way....at least I think it's easier. But it only works for this particular 2 paths. It would not necessarily work for any 2 paths. http...

Re: Connect intersecting lines

Wow! Since all that time, there still is no easy way to do that. However, there is a new feature since then, which makes it possible to do it with precision. It's not easy, but at least it's not subjective as it used to be. There's a new Snap feature, Snap to Intersection. I'm trying to learn how to...

Re: Inkscape 0.46-0.48 won't vector cut on ULS Laser

Since this topic that you posted in is about versions 0.46 to 0.48, should we assume this code is meant to fix extensions in that version? Did the fix provided earlier in this topic not work for you? Were you able to test it as requested by the developer who offered the fix? As far as I understand &...

Re: Icons and handles are too small in HD tablets

Forgive me for not being familiar with current technology. But you have a tablet that big? Or is it a regular size tablet, with that resolution? As far as I understand, the icons can't be fixed or worked around. Although it seems like a heard that an upcoming new version will have a fix for that. Oh...

Re: Changing colour within a Outline

If you could share your SVG file, we could give specific or detailed steps. Sometimes if we're only guessing, we don't like to go into much detail, because we aren't sure if it's the right answer.

But with your SVG file, we know the whole story and exactly what to say :D

Re: [Extension] Draw from triangle: draw normals from the incentre

That level of geometry and math is over my head. But the middle tab of that dialog looks like it probably makes the extension very flexible, if you know the right formula or equation or whatever it's called. It looks like it's meant to find specific points like that. I used to know about sin and cos...

Re: How to lock objects so they can't be moved but still be able to align to them?

It sounds like you might be using Align and Distribute dialog? I've always found that dialog frustrating for exactly the problems you describe. If it would offer to align them all relative to one of the objects, that would be better (for me). But at least for the Distribute section, all of them move...

Re: How to snap to handles? (v. 0.48)

Are you talking about node handles? (Other things are controlled by handles as well -- shapes, patterns, etc.) Starting I think with 0.91, the shape handles can be snapped to. But even 0.92.2, I don't think anything can snap TO node handles. You might consider setting up one or two guides, to create...

I need the left side of the e to sort of "extrapolate" the curve that would be there without the intersecting line. If only there were a way to specify the bezier's values manually, instead of by dragging... I think I might understand what you're asking now -- maybe. Is it that you don't ...

Re: Mirror bezier on opposite side of node

There are ways to enter values for some aspects of curves. But I don't understand what you mean about extrapolating. If you mean that you want the curve to be the same on the left and right sides of the "e", you might have to draw the whole e object yourself. I mean the "e" for w...
