If so, then the explanation is that Cairo PNG is not the same as PNG - it has a limited feature set, e.g. it doesn't support transparency and some other features. If you had selected a different export area, then that's th...

Re: missing text

Do File > Export PNG image and make sure you have selected the 'Page' tab in the dialog, not the 'Selection' tab.

Re: How to mass convert text into path

One more idea: To keep each text item separate, try the following (faster than manual selection, at least): 1. Click on text, right-click, select same 'Object type'. 2. Open Object > Selection sets, click on the + icon 3. Click on the + icon right next to your new selection set name (all texts are n...

Re: How do you remove line that prints with the stuff i print?

If I right-click the file in the folder and print. It prints out a directory line instead of the 24. Edit: What is a directory line, btw.? So we are talking about 2 different types of lines? 1.) When you print with the Windows print functionality, you get a black box instead of the text. Right or W...

Re: How do you remove line that prints with the stuff i print?

I think I'll give up, I still have no idea which lines you mean. Unless you make a photo, and paint a fat arrow on it, and also explain why you need to use the (maybe faulty, can't tell because I still don't understand the issue) right-click printing option of Windows, I doubt I'll understand your i...

Re: How do you remove line that prints with the stuff i print?

If the number doesn't print at all via your right-click menu, you can either print from Inkscape (which you should), or you can modify the text by selecting it, then do Path -> Object to Path. This will turn it into a path that can be read by Windows print programs. Or you can do Text > Convert to T...

Yes, Inkscape SVG is the correct file format.

Re: "Fill and Stroke" menu won't open.

Take a look into the dock at the right. Is there a minimized dialog? It should be either some vertical text, a symbol, or a symbol and text. It may also be that the dialog is already open, but you need to scroll down in the dock to find it. And lastly, it may be that you need to close a couple of di...

Re: [solved] How to measure path length of a gear/letter

Has anyone tried using the measure tool? It's supposed to work with text. Holding Ctrl will limit it to vertical/horizontal measurement.
One Caveat: I just found a bug (didn't look if known or fixed already) with /transformed/ text, which does not get measured correctly.

Re: How do you remove line that prints with the stuff i print?

Flowed text shouldn't make a difference for printing, as far as I can guess. It doesn't for me.

I do not get any black bars when I print to pdf. Can you show us how the result looks for you with the example SVG that you uploaded?

Re: no color at the same time

Select your object. Look into the bottom left corner of the Inkscape window, into the field that says 'O' for opacity (or different letter in your language). It must be at 100% for full opacity. Look at the field for the fill color in the bottom left corner. Is there a checkerboard pattern visible? ...

Re: CMYK drives me crazy

Some artworks have 30,40, 60 colours used in their swatches, nobody has so much time to waste on every file to fix a missing feature. Yeah, did that, too, with hundreds of colors (irregular gradient...). Took at least half an hour. Every time. (Tip: if it's the same object, use the 'library' featur...

Re: Sometimes I copy paste color codes in Fill and Stroke panel results in different color codes

That's weird, indeed. I'm on Linux Mint 18.2, Xfce edition, so that's the same OS base and even the same desktop. I'm not sure, but perhaps if you made a screen recording, this could give us a clue (no promises). Best screen recording tool for Linux: https://github.com/phw/peek , ppa at deb-src http...

Just thought of the simplest solution: what about patterns? In the Fill and stroke dialog, you can select a pattern fill, and there exist premade patterns for stripes: http://write.flossmanuals.net/start-wit ... a-pattern/
