Re: Saving and reopening file loses portions/gets cropped

Seems your laser cutter cannot deal with transforms on objects.
Unlink all clones, and convert all texts to path.

Re: Cannot change icons

I think this is a combination of a bug and a packaging error (an intentional one, though... at least for Linux Mint). Distros seem to want to guarantee a consistent icon set throughout all the icons, so they provide icons for Inkscape. And unfortunately, in this Inkscape version, user-configured ico...

Re: Polka dots pattern fill not exporting as png

From just reading the file, I can see the following things:

- @druban: the export dpi is 300

- @fariha_kazi: grab the pattern origin handle (x-shaped) and move it into the object.
I think this is the bug you're hitting: https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1465753

Re: Problem with lines width when saving a .pdf

Open the SVG file with a text editor, and search and replace all occurrances of "vector-effect:non-scaling-stroke;" with "" (nothing). Save and reopen with Inkscape

Re: Polka dots pattern fill not exporting as png

Can you share the SVG file, please? If you could add info about your operating system and your exact Inkscape version, too, that would be great.

Re: Inkscape export PNG > ms word > PDF

I suppose that Word's PDF-saving version can't deal with transparency in your pngs.

Use an opaque background rectangle (e.g. a white one) in your pictures to work around the problem.

Re: Question about edit in Inkscape is effectively

Can you share a file with the problematic object?

I suspect it's a symbol, imported from a pdf, or it's grouped, maybe. You can also check that yourself, by selecting the letter and looking into the status line.

Re: How to resize icons appropriately.

Use the selection tool and enter the size into the "W" and "H" fields at the top after selecting and grouping the icon, or use Object > Transform. If you need the icon exported to png in different sizes, try an extension. This one might work for you, if you need Android icon size...

Better link to videos, there's a limit to how many files one can upload, and video files are usually rather large.

Change the default settings in the C++ code, compile Inkscape - that would be the only way I know of.

Re: (Inkscape 0.92.4) Why don't my downloaded fonts show?

You must be on Windows... Windows doesn't delete fonts when it 'deletes' or 'updates' them. Somewhere on this forum there's a long thread about this... viewtopic.php?t=18770 - not sure if it's the only one.

Re: How can I change the Objects… dialog icon so it can be different from Layers' one?

I think the shortcut might have been left out intentionally, for people to select themselves - most shortcuts are already taken, which starts getting problematic. But if you can find one that's still free and somehow fits, then why not. Yes, if you edit a C++ file, Inkscape needs to be re-built (if ...

Re: How can I change the Objects… dialog icon so it can be different from Layers' one?

Yep, I see. It's still wrong in the code. Although, I think you'd be able to fix it. It doesn't require any programming skills to rename that to dialog-objects and to add the corresponding icons into the various sets.

Re: svg font editor

0. Probably the same as 2. 1. Fonts don't have a stroke, at least these don't. They require a fill to work properly. Use the new Hershey fonts if you need a stroke font. 2. Make the texts larger, e.g. use the corresponding template. 3. Make sure that your layer isn't flipped (e.g. from an imported p...

Yes, copy the icon file /usr/share/inkscape/icons/icons.svg into ~/.config/inkscape/icons , there you can edit it.

Export only the page area (first tab in the dialog), not the drawing area, and also not a selection or custom area.
