WOW! :shock: I'm an engineer and I will be definitely using it extensively. The only bad thing is that I need this kind of functionality now... for my book/paper. Can you give a heads up in this topic when a build with those features will be available?

Those are some awesome aircraft drawings! I'm sorry, I should have make a note that the aircraft 3 way views are bitmaps taken from http://www.raf.mod.uk/bob1940/airpower.html :oops: The silhouettes are vector though, made from the bitmaps and the whole composition was child easy in Inkscape.

What I use Inkscape for

I don't do any fancy artistic stuff. I rather use Inkscape as an utility software taking advantage of it's ease of use, svg scalability and ease of modifications. Practically all of the things I do in Inkscape are RAPID works. The things are being created so fast and easily as if Inkscape would be m...

Re: Minimum but safe A4 margins

The reason I said "most desktop printers out there" is that I can't test everybody's printers ;) I prepared an illustration I described as printable and I wouldn't want it to be cut out by margins on some contemporary desktop printers.

SVG with custom font - make portable

I always thought SVG is 100% portable just like PDF but recently I got my font replaced in one of my SVGs when I opened it on another machine. The font was Quartz . My questions are: - how to make a such SVG portable i.e. so people would not have to install Quartz font manually to view my SVG image ...

It looks like, from your linked topic, that you have it figured out now :) Yes, but only thanks to you You have to use a grid with spacing of 0.5px. I normally create two grids, one presented with lines spaced 1px apart, and one presented with dots which is also 1px apart but is offset by 0.5px. If...

But I'm still open for additional tips. Especially regarding preserving crispness of bitmaps imported to Inkscape.

As I do a lot of work involving bitmaps in Inkscape I need help on understanding the means of getting exported bitmap crisp and clear, including the imported bitmaps. I often do as follows: - have a group of horiz. lines - move the first one where I want to be the start of those distributed lines - ...

Re: Map - bitmap roads to paths

Unfortunately I also think that it would be best to do by hand. But, just maybe... For example - how to turn a shape similar to stroke of the :tool_calligraphic: to single line :tool_pen: . If such operation is possible then there are some possibilities of automation.

Map - bitmap roads to paths

Let's say we have the following image

Is it possible to, for example, automatically draw single-line curves along all the roads (in red) from the map? If not then is it possible in some other application?

Re: Change theme on Windows

Because some of the themes I've seen are clearly GTK (Gnome?) themes. Besides take a look at

Code: Select all

\Inkscape\share\themes\Default\
\Inkscape\share\themes\Emacs\
\Inkscape\share\themes\MS-Windows\
\Inkscape\share\themes\Raleigh\


This is almost identical structure to GIMP themes folder.

Re: Change theme on Windows

See http://gimper.net/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=626 You don't need this application to change GIMP themes but it's for convenience. One can download GTK themes http://art.gnome.org/themes/gtk2/?page=1 and apply theme on GIMP. Inkscape definitely has themes support http://www.inkscape.org/screenshots/...
