Re: No "Input Device" to Be Found Under File

what is the brand of tablet you are using? Different tablets have varying success with being recognized. also need your version of inkscape and platform before someone with the same can offer advice

Re: my spiral is abnormal

found your problem 2019-03-22_135206.png at some point this ellipse was converted to a filled path probably with an unintended press of stroke-to-path Now it is actually two concentric ellipses almost but not quite of the same size. But still one path so Inkscape places the pattern on both of them. ...

Re: Grid zoom

Of course your requirements are much more precise but I thought other folks might like this arrangement, at least to try out. if they like it they can make it their defau...

Re: my spiral is abnormal

you could post the file for an accurate explanation. Several things interact in this scenario, e.g. whether it's converted to path, what the stroke and fill status is, whether it has been scaled, whether other path effects are being used, whether some overlap is present etc., and these are tedious t...

Re: PDF output is slow to render

you have more than 250 flowed text objects. Inkscape will convert these to regular text when rendering to PDF which takes a while. Consider using the convert to text command to change all of these to regular text. It saved as pdf and opened the pdf too fast for me to time it. So no more than 0.05 se...

LOsing track of what you have done and are still finding problems with. OK, so AFAICT the only thing that can possibly still be wrong after everything is converted to path is that the box is colored incorrectly? Everything in the right place? Try duplicating the box, stroke to path, select both boxe...

I think you could make a file with everything working correctly (in inkscape), do an object to path on the rectangle, "save a copy" NOT as inkscape svg but as regular svg and then revert the working file, repeat etc. Saving as nonspecific svg after converting the path effected item should ...

Re: creating a subtltles master - rectangle that resizes with text

If you just want your text to be readable you could stroke it in the gray color. inkscape now allows the stroke to be entirely behind the fill so the letters will not be deformed... but read on! There is a path effect called bounding box and it does exactly what you want, i.e. put a bounding box beh...

Re: How to get image to display at correct size

not sure if I am explaining it properly. e.g. the printer requires 300dpi. Work backwards from this. You want a 10" print? That's 3000 px. Use this to make your object, and set the document to use px. When you export to PNG, if your export dialog is set to 300DPI your print from the printer sho...

Re: How to get image to display at correct size

Do you mean on screen size? That is so tricky these days because no monitor resolution is standard. You can go into Inkscape preferences/interface and hold a ruler to the screen and adjust the correction factor so it gets close, and this should be good enough to work in. If you have never done this ...

Re: How to get image to display at correct size

21 cm/(2.54 cm/in) = 8.27 in x (300 D/in) = 2480 px
31 cm/(2.54 cm/in) = 12.2 in x (300 D/in) = 3661 px

your object/drawing/page needs to be 2480 x 3660 px (rounded down). Don't use cm or in etc, use px for maximum precision

Re: Edible Landcape Food forest Design

your file is too large to work with effectively. You have a great many layers, all no doubt very useful, but since so many of them are turned off (hidden) I suggest you create separate much smaller files each with only the elements that you want seen at the time. The approach you are currently using...

Re: Having trouble with union I think

some serious problems with your paths not sure how they got this way! I have fixed them but not smoothed out the drawing. TBH I think you should have far fewer nodes in the flamey part and smoother curves but you may not agree.

Re: Trying to use Inkscape making a Rectangle box

It's also not designed to be a toy or a game, IMO. The "turn it on and see what happens" approach has to be specifically designed for, and rules out advanced tools. I'm sure there are lots of advocates for an iPhone inkscape app but I can't see it happening in any recognizable form!

for hatches you could convert using 'object to path' and they should be seen...
