Re: Change size and font of multiple textes objects

The strange thing is this:

I suspect you multiselect the texts, but don't click on :tool_text: ?

Re: Change size and font of multiple textes objects

Strange, I can multiselect various text objects, then click :tool_text: , and change the font type and size of all of them.

pattern along path exponential offset

An idea for a feature request: in pattern along path (both LPE and extension) and the scatter-extension, add a cumulate checkbox and an exponential parameter to the spacing, normal and tangential offset. The result should be that instead of having the pattern evenly spaced/offset along the path, spa...

Re: save in .png

Or maybe the "Export As" button should say "Select"?
(The only problem with renaming stuff is that afterwards tutorials don't coincide any more...)

Re: Drag Objects via Guide Lines

Snapping does not mean holding. What you describe is perfectly normal behavior in Inkscape. Snapping does not create any link whatsoever between two objects, or an object and a guide. Let's say it just makes your mouse cursor "jump" :), that's all.

Re: Color fill problem

Maybe you made them transparent, or the layers they're in? Layer transparency is set in the Layers dialog (Ctrl+Shift+L). layer_opacity.PNG Object transparency (for both fill and stroke) is set in the Fill & Stroke dialog (Ctrl+Shift+F). You have the "opacity" slider for the object as ...

pattern along path with gradient

I'd like to put the white object repeated along the path, but with Path -> Path effects all the clones/copies become grey (no gradient), and with LPE it just copies the stroke, no fill. How could I do it?

Re: Live preview for "create tiled clones"

Well, I agree that on-canvas controls would be a great feature, but it would also seem much more complicated to implement then a live preview? I mean, "live preview" for tiled clones could be regarded as a simple, small improvement of the existing dialog and functionality and wouldn't impl...

Re: Live preview for "create tiled clones"

What's wrong with 'Create'? Create vs Apply would be a question of consistency throughout dialogs, especially for newcomers to software this can be of help. But I agree that it's of minor importance. IIRC there was a GSoC project in 2012 (On-canvas support for Tessellations) which aimed to improve ...

Re: Live preview for "create tiled clones"

maybe 'Tiled clones' could have both - i.e. keep the feature to remove an existing tiling, instead of replacing it with a 'Live Preview' only. You're right. The "remove" feature is indeed very handy. So just add a checkbox "Live preview". Would be an improvement, no? As a side n...

Re: Rainbow Spiral with Arbitrary number of colors?

The easiest way would seem to me by coding it (i.e. in Javascript), as it's very mathematical. But that's something I'd like to get into one day . Basically it seems to be a question of setting up the canvas, then describing in Javascript the forms needed, which in this case with a few iterations wo...

Re: My first Inkscape drawing.

Looks good. Two things I thought of: 1) stroke of ellipse a bit thinner 2) the meridian lines in the original have also a gradient (full white in the middle, which becomes slightly transparent further off). Select all your meridians (hor and vertical), ungroup them (Ctrl+Shift+G, several times if ne...
