Re: Please help me draw a triangle

Draw a 158mm circle with its center at N3. Draw a circle centered on N2 so that N3 is on the circumference, probably getting close when drawing and then zooming in and using the keyboard shortcuts to scale up and down until it's right on it. One of the two intersections of these two circles is where...

a word is typed out using the Text Object selection. Edit paths by nodes is selected, the entire word selected with the pointer and somehow he links all of the letters together by selecting the first node and the last node (?). When he pulls on one single upper node in the string of letters entire ...

Re: How to remove default shadows of objects?

I don't see it. If it is always the same width no matter how much you zoom in or it only happens in one direction horiz or vert it is a monitor problem. If it only happens on PNG export your object does not match the pixel grid and needs to have its size - with stroke - adjusted to a whole pixel num...

Re: problem with dowloading Inkscape for Windows 64-bit

you have not specified your system, but I will assume win8 or newer. if the program installed it should be in C:\Program Files and a link in your Start/Apps screen as well as on your desktop. if these are not present, you should look in your control panel/programs and features to try to uninstall it...

Re: Can not open edit box and drag layer by mouse

It sounds like the first thing you should fix is the device problem and probably restarting your machine is the first step. If you have several pointing devices attached you may have a conflict. Let us know what your inkscape version, platform and hardware are to get the most specific help.

TC68, I'm sorry you're having this problem, it seems an odd thing to have escaped the attention of the bug fixers. It shows up in all the versions I have.

Re: Outlining Multiple Items in one go?

I'm glad it worked for you, but ungrouping all your carefully made groups is not a good idea for something like this, instead please use the "find" dialog to select every object with a 'stroke' attribute. The find dialog selects within and outside groups without any restriction. Thereupon ...

I note that you are on a Mac and I am not, but try increasing the line spacing which inkscape reads as zero in some free fonts... Caps then get cut off even when there is not a line above

Re: Text along a path: How to maintain individual letters vertically?

This can be done, but the result will not be as satisfactory as doing it in Illustrator, where the text remains editable . However, if you have to this is achieved by first converting your text string into paths. This creates a group; leave it as such. Then select the path you wish to put this strin...

Re: Editing .png file in Inkscape

Elaborating just a little on what Maestral said, PNG is a single layer format i.e. if the text overlaps the image anywhere then you can't change anything without losing parts of the image. If the text is in an entirely white or one-color part of the image it's possible to replace it with new text in...

Re: Curved Gradients

Level 10 thread necromancy at the very least! But since you've gone to this much trouble, check out the WIP gradient mesh tool which is more scaleable than using masked/clipped blur.
