Re: vector graphics

It is always good practice to keep original format files for any work you do. You never know if you might need it later safe and with all original features preserved. 1.Does it have resolution? You can consider SVG objects as math formulas (to oversimplify it), they will scale up or down indefinitel...

Re: text pts cannot be changed

Can you see the code for the text objects and investigate the difference that is blocking it?

Edit > XML Editor (Ctrl + Shift + X).

Or if you can let us see the SVG file.

Re: Can not open svg file on Mac

Is this all happening on the same computer? SVG is a text file format, so it can be opened with a text editor and peek inside code to see if it's healthy. Can you open some other example SVG file? Does the same happen? You have SVG files in your Inkscape installation, or simply search online. If you...

Re: HELP! Inkscape distorting images when moved

This is usually caused by transforms applied to objects and groups or even layers (layers are basically groups). It's difficult to say without looking at your code. Can you upload the SVG? What do you have set under Preferences (Ctrl + Shift + P) > Behavior > Transforms > Store transformation?

Re: Image exporting not correct size?

See the continuation after Width and Height where it says "pixels at ___ dpi"? The Width and Height pixels depend on how many dots you want in an inch.

To see the correct numbers set the dpi to 96, which is the CSS pixel standard. (It used to be 90 in older Inkscape versions.)

Does it also show for you in font-family that it's not found on system?

Post here when you start working on it, I'd love to help with testing or concept if you need it and if I have time. It would be great if this could be done as a separate extension, not related to csv. Then maybe you can use that extension as a dependency for your countersheets extension? But I don't...

Re: Unwanted colour changes

I can confirm it, but it happens very very rarely for me, maybe once in 50 times I slide to 0 then come back and the number is 1 or 4. Maybe it has something to do how fast you move the mouse and release when sliding. I'm on linux, dev version. What's your platform and version Ponny? How often does ...

Re: Substitute for flowImage to inline images in text from extension

Thank you for the update!

Can your extension be used for text editing or is it an overkill?

It would be nice to have some screenshots of the interface on your GitHub, it's hard to understand what it does by description alone, even if it is so detailed.

Re: Applying a triangle in/out/ellipse to an existing pattern along path

Maybe someone else will have a better idea, but it seems you might solve this by first creating a very long straight "snake" that is tapered. Use Envelope or Lattice effects, perhaps some other methods, depending on what exactly you want to end up with, how realistic the snake, head etc. O...
