Re: Is it possible to put the text in the PATH in this case ?

Does it have to be the exact text object you have in the file with three lines? And shorter text object for shorter lines? I think you can do it more or less easily with Text > Put on Path. http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Text-Path.html First you need to do some work on your "brain...

Re: Paste into Layer

Zolotoy are you coming from raster graphics world? That is where layers are manipulated as main carriers of the image. In the vector world (Inkscape is a vector editor) the situation is different, simpler even: here we manipulate objects directly. If you want an object to look like it's part of anot...

Re: Saving a Vectorized Image

PDF saves your vector objects as vector objects, without losing quality. PNG format is a raster type. You can set the quality by adjusting the dpi setting in the export dialogue (see where tylerdurden linked you where it says 90). If you set it to too low the PNG will be of low quality. What number ...

The image I see in your document is the "Linked image not found" image. You seemed to have linked to your image from Inkscape instead of embedding it. I'm not sure how Inkscape handles copying image types to clipoard, but there are extensions for extracting imaged out of SVG. Try under Ext...

Re: Converting an image to EPS

Your PDF seems to have exported paths (vector), because you get smooth lines at such a tight zoom. Your trace probably went ok :) The EPS sounds problematic, most likely hasn't exported as vector paths. I remember other users also having problems with EPS not exporting as vector objects. It's probab...

Yes it can sometimes be confusing, because strokes are just "visual decorations" on a maths object. So when you do operations on those objects you can get unexpected results, parts disappearing, or strokes being applied on unexpected areas. A good tip (especially for cutters) is to remembe...

Thank you! Dummy file is all it takes, even easier to track down bugs.

But I don't have any problems with moving objects in that file, or copying them into a new file.

Do you have problems moving the objects in the dummy file? What exactly happens?
