Re: Basic question about 3D graphic file conversion

I still don't get it. And I'm ok with that! Whatever I said to make anyone think that I wasn't 'taking it well' was probably miscommunication. Obviously I don't know enough about 3D Files interacting with Inkscape and I would like to know more. I am also curious if the TV show 'Jeopardy' is ...

Re: Problem with converting svg to pdf

The source for your svg uses some objects that Inkscape does not recognize: line and polygon. Converting them to paths fixes all the problems.

Re: Basic question about 3D graphic file conversion

Yes, I would be very interested to see if Inkscape can be made to import, parse or render any of those formats! DXF maybe but only with restrictions I think.One can work with 3D objects in Adobe Illustrator in an extension type of way, or in Adobe Dimensions, and get the result flattened to a vector...

Re: Basic question about 3D graphic file conversion

Even assuming you mean .jpg, this question doesn't become any clearer. Can you explain better? Inkscape does not make 3D graphics but I'll go out on a limb here and assume you mean 3D box. Still not clear... Converting svg to jpg always results in quality loss, but not very much at high settings.

Re: Select objects with similar size

How about that legacy file warning, haven't seen that for a while. Mostly I was suggesting by my example the combining of the paths (which are in little pieces in order to perhaps simulate a gradient with many flat colors) and then using an actual gradient. Saving as non inkscape svg and reducing pr...

Re: Select objects with similar size

This is a completely useless idea. You have been warned. You can select and delete all objects below a certain size by selecting everything and aligning their right or left edges with the left or right edge of the page or any target (or top and bottom or even center etc). Then by making your selecti...

That's a nice extension! It automates a long manual procedure and gives you all the options in a nice dialog box. Great job, if you are the writer of the extension.

Re: inkscape print function does not print pattern

It might be the odd font. Please try converting the text to a pattern filled path before printing and see what happens!
Alternately, you could save as a PDF and see what happens when printing from Acrobat.

You might want to post your OS and Inkscape version as Moini asked. the problem, if not in your hardware, might go away completely with an update.

Re: cut image outline

Two things you can do in your case. 1. Go into preferences/ bitmaps/ resolution for bitmap copy and change that to an appropriate number like 300 or even higher depending on how large your original is etc., then clip your picture and use edit > make a bitmap copy. Quality may suffer very slightly. 2...

Ae you using Clip? Just saying 'cut' is confusing, because there are several possible things you might be doing. it sounds like you are, because Clip just hides parts of the picture. Are you trying to reduce the file size? Shrink the page to the Clipped size? These are the only reason that the unsee...
