Re: Pencil tool- resulting nodes forced into vertical columns

Did you (intentionally or inadvertently) lower the value for numeric precision (Edit > Preferences > Input/Output > SVG Output > Numbers)? The default values are '8' for numeric precision and '-8' for minimum exponent. A lower value for numeric precision (≠ number of decimal places) can produce simi...

Re: Text Converts To Object When Pasted Into Another SVG File

Checking your files with a text editor, at the begin of them it shows: inkscape:version="0.91 r13725" But in my Inkscape, which is installed on Ubuntu Linux it shows: inkscape:version="0.91 r" so maybe, you have an early release of Inkscape 0.91. There is only one release of sta...

Re: Removing all transforms from an SVG

why you would want to remove all transforms The file will get smaller, and animations will be easier to apply, I believe. Another reason I recall having heard from users asking similar questions (e.g. on irc) are limitations of third-party applications or tools which the user plans to use to furthe...

Re: Inkscape won't run on OSX 10.10.5

Did you reboot (or log out and back in) after installing XQuartz? This is a required step to complete the installation of XQuartz (otherwise $DISPLAY is not known to launch services and thus not to any apps launched via Finder or Dock trying to connect to the X server).

Re: How to create a PNG file (5000 x 5000 at 300 DPI)?

Inkscape needs a dpi value for embedding raster images (and I think for some patterns and filters, too, I'm not so sure about that, though). AFAIU Inkscape itself does not need it anywhere: Inkscape >= 0.91 optionally uses the image resolution - if provided in the image's metadata i...

You are using an outdated version of Inkscape (0.48.x) - I recommend to upgrade to current stable Inkscape 0.91 (this known issue with division applied to paths with holes is fixed in this release).
