Re: Invert color (negative)

AFAICT it is not related to the fact that only clones are visible on-canvas (the original objects are defined with unset style properties i.e. the <use> cases can be restyled independently). The limitation is that Inkscape's color-modifying extensions are external scripts, which have to parse the ob...

Re: Cloned tile tool

- When you change the size of the canvas, and there is a layer, in order to keep the position of the objects that are in the layer, Inkscape applies a transformation attribute to the layer. The way I know to erase that attribute is using the XML editor (Shift + Ctrl + X), find the layer/ group, fin...

Re: Print preview error on Debian KDE
