Re: trying a tiled clone w/radial placement

FYI for anyone who might be following this or search it out -- the info about the transformation data being assigned to the layers, and causing the distorted radially tiled clones, has been added to Bug Report 284709 as a comment. Still yet to be "confirmed" or "assigned", at thi...

Re: 3 Qs re stroke join style

Oh, I see, so the way you did it, it is still a stroke in the end. That's very clever! I didn't like the offset idea either, for the same reason you mentioned. I was thinking along similar lines, but I went Stroke to path, duplicated, scaled down duplicate, then did Difference. So my final product i...

Re: aaarrrggh - clipping!!

AAAaaaaaaaahhh!!! I found it. There is a setting under Clippaths and masks in Inkscape Prefs (not props): "Remove clippath/mask object after applying". Ok, I know I must look stupid, but here's why I thought it should be unchecked. Early on when I was trying to learn clipping, I didn't qui...

Yes. just to be sure. Close out of everything reboot your computer restart inkscape and open a new file and try...

Re: 3 Qs re stroke join style

Imagine the outline of an object is a rail and a wheel is connected the rail at its centre. If the outside of the wheel created a big blue smudge as it traveled around the rail it would create the shape you see, including the corner. Right, I understand that micro. Would it be particularly difficul...

[solved] can't make single dots using Ctrl + click

Hi again, For some reason, which I hope to learn here, I can no longer make dots using Ctrl + click. Here's what I've tried as far as troubleshooting so far: 1 -- I made sure that the pen :tool_pen: and pencil :tool_pencil: tools have their own style in Inkscape Prefs, ie - they don't take their sty...

Re: what about non-rectangular canvas?

Ok, thanks zials.
Yes, I know about using a transparent background to make it appear that a border is non-rectangular. I do know how to do that.

My mind surely can ramble though :mrgreen: and I wondered if it was possible. Anyway, thanks :D

Re: The Cake is a Lie!

Ugh, what a nightmare -- not the image, but the description of the cake!

I think it's a nice, very UN-appealing piece of cake. Setting it against the black background and with the white lettering is very effective, I think it really makes the colors in the cake pop.

Very nice work!

Nothing wrong with that.

Absolutely not! I didn't mean to sound negative, I just wasn't sure. And if you did it all with Inkscape, I wanted to ask how you did the background (so I could try it).

Oh yes, I recognize your examples from your Guide, I've read the clipping section many times. The Tavmjong Bah Guide as well.

Thanks for reporting it micro, because I still don't understand everything that's happening. I understand that you've been able to find the errant clipping path, by using something in the 0,47 dev version that 0.46 doesn't have. So I understand that I never would have been able to create a sample fi...
