Re: Clip From Path Instead of Object

To add to what Xav has explained, you might think that 'combine' from the word would join two paths where they overlap, but it doesn't; that function is performed by the 'join nodes' button in the nodetool control bar. It looks like there might be three locations where the nodes overlap and need to ...

Re: Stroke aberration

I'm sure no one is criticizing you for any technique. Most Inkscape users are probably 'self taught' although the definition of that might vary considerably. Do you mean to say that you have learnt to use Inkscape by trial and error, without consulting any documentation?

Re: Interpolation color grading not working.

The settings are there in my screenshot. The theme you are using and the low resolution of your screenshot makes it impossible to see your settings. Convert the text to paths, ungroup, and then combine all the letters into a single path. Duplicate this path and move it into position for the end path...

Check to see if you are applying to a group! Also, what method are you using, and are you trying to do something with the tweak tool or is that screenshot not relevant to your question?

Re: Need help with weird division results.

In the long run it's easier to separate the object by doing break apart and then combining each object into its own path you will have to work in outline mode at first and use the alternative selection tool, but you will find it goes very fast

Re: Help me colour my fish... Bezier pen, and then filling!

Which path tools are you talking about? Far as I could tell those are normal filled paths its important to remember that the variation in width is achieved by making each stroke into a filled path already filled with black. To simulate a fillable outline you will have to duplicate it, remove the pat...

Re: barplots to trapezium

The extension requires that you draw the envelope with the first node where you want top left of your target to appear. If you close the path it's difficult to see where the first node is, so for that reason I leave the path open as in the examples. notice how the arrow points to the first node (lab...

Re: ruler repositioning

No I don't think that's possible; Inkscape's entire code depends on the origin always being the bottom left corner of the page! OTOH we are all dealing with it so it's not a really big deal, can you tell us why you need the origin to be in the center?

Re: barplots to trapezium

either of these methods the extension requires the yellow path to be drawn - doesn't have to be right on your group, so it's very convenient to draw in the place you want and the deformed object will move to that location. the path effect let's you interactively resize but if you want a precise fit ...

Re: barplots to trapezium

pretty simple to do, in fact there are too many ways to do it without knowing if you want them to be curved at all, if they are all identical or is each one different, which side do you want to be shortest,
We have the pattern on path, the bend, the perspective, and envelope extensions, scatter, etc

Re: Corner to curve

The answer is basically telling you to draw the rounded corners on the shape. There is no really easy way to do this in Inkscape. It is not that difficult to use circles to cut away and add rounding to sharp corners using the Boolean operations. If you are hoping to avoid reading the manual I don't ...

Re: Corner to curve

you can use dynamic offset to achieve limited success by scaling down afterwards (left side) for small offsets, and for large pillowy offsets scaling down first and then simple node editing - vertical and horizontal drags (right side, two steps)

I understand that it's not been satisfactory, perhaps you could ask around to see how other people are managing their problems. Your situation can't be unique, and In other threads 1.0 seems to have resolved the Catalina problem.

Re: stroke width incrasing width

no sorry, I meant that when you have the 'powerstroke' effect in use, you will have 'nodes' that work as usual to shape the path curvature and on the path edges you will have 'control points' to adjust the thickness of the curve, both will need the nodetool to adjust them.

Re: i couldn't take it anymore

whoa!
'Beta' would generally indicate that it has bugs. Unfortunately you have to choose between Catalina and the older versions of Inkscape. You could possibly roll your OS back until 1.0 is finalized
