Burned Paper

Hi Friends, I don't have any place to upload a formal tutorial. But I stumbled upon a couple of neat tricks, that I want to share. This one quickly creates the look of a partially burned piece of paper. Although it may still need some tweaking, if you want it to look exactly like the real thing. Als...

Simulated Topographic Map

Hi Friends, I don't have anything like a formal tutorial that I've written....mostly because I don't have a website to post one on. But I've stumbled upon a couple of neat tricks, by experimenting with various things in the Effects menu, just for fun, that I want to share. This one is a Simulated To...

Re: Combine paths, maintain stroke width

I'm thinking you could have the edge of the leaf and the veins on 2 different layers. Then at least you'd only have to bend twice....per leaf, I guess. Although you may find it a more natural appearance for the veins to have slightly different curves, or the curves slightly askew. (On this part, I'm...

Re: setting fill/stroke with node tool?

Ok, so now when I see it happening that selecting doesn't show fill/stroke, but I know I set it, because I can see it, and selecting with the other tool does show the fill/stroke, I need to look for the odd "Group of 1", or clone. Thanks guys. You know, I could never have imagined how much...

But it's been frustrating, and this time, before I posted for help, I made sure there could be no other explanation, that I know of. And n...

[solved] setting fill/stroke with node tool?

I might end up editing the title of this topic (for potential future readers), because I'm not exactly sure what's going on. I'm working on an image with lots of layers, paths, subpaths, sublayers, etc; by far the most complex image I've attempted. And I've noticed, as I work along, that I'll select...

Re: Adding Second Gradients by Accident

It may have something to do with the touchpad mouse. I also use a touchpad mouse, although I use it with my desktop system. Yeah, I just prefer a touchpad mouse. Anyway, touchpad mice are prone to static discharge, much more than regular mice. This can result in a click, even though I might just be ...

I was typing fast, and they are side by side on the keyboard, so my mind went one way, and my fingers typed the other! Sorry :lol: Thanks ...

Re: circle with small cross at center?

Could you use guides for the crosshair mark? I'm not familiar with sacred geometry, but I like to make mandalas (symetrical designs inside a circle) and I frequently use guides to mark the center of circles. Also, you may find the Snap feature to be helpful. I recently made a mandala which had 4 ide...

Hi again, I hesitated to report this problem as a bug, after I 1st discovered it, because it wasn't clear enough to me, that it might actually be a bug.

Re: intersecting lines

Thanks SureWhyNo and microUgly, So SWN, basically you're saying -- put nodes where you want the intersection and align them perfectly, one on top of the other. And by selecting both nodes, you can move them as if they were one? Aaahhh, that's what I was missing -- selecting more than one node. But I...

Re: version 0.46 grid snapping

WHOA!!! Wow, macti, thanks for that info! So do I understand correctly that snapping: a) is either on or off, and b) is to BOTH grid and guides, at the SAME time, and c) there is no choice as to where things can be snapped, only whether or not to snap? Is that it? Geez, no wonder snapping has never...

Re: version 0.46 grid snapping

But then this might be by design as there is no option that would influence such behaviour.

When you enable snapping (Enable snapping checkbox checked), but you don't put a check in the Snap to grids checkbox, shouldn't that disable grid snapping?

Hi Friends, I've always had difficulty with snapping, in Inkscape. I'm not sure why, other than not understanding the settings. Well, I should say that I think I understand them, but my choice of settings never results in snapping as I want. So maybe I'm confused about the language. In 0.46, the Sna...

Re: add nodes along a path

WHOA!! I opened my Task Manager, to find out if I might learn more info there. Any time I click on the Inkscape canvas, CPU use by Inkscape.exe goes from 00 up to the 70 - 80% range. Double-clicking it maxes out the CPU! :o So it's not an issue of double-clicking speed at all. Instead, it looks lik...

Well, the problem seems to have resolved now. And I don't know any more why it's resolved than what caused it to begin with. But I have a theory. One problem I've been having with v 0.46 is how SLOW it works. For example, zooming -- in v 0.44, I can only tap the mouse over the zoom buttons because i...

Re: add nodes along a path

I can't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to add nodes by selecting two nodes and then pressing the add node button. Does that work? Yes, but it adds the node at the midpoint of the segment, which is not where I want it. And I'm not sure enough with the mouse to move it to where I want it, w...
