Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

Path Effect Power Stroke, which is used for the Triangle options, does not understand closed paths. The original implementation of shape used Path effect Pattern Along Path for all options, which works on both open and closed paths. If you are actually trying to work in Inkscape with a closed path a...

Re: Set lenght of a line

These answers have been given above already, and also you should notice that the question was asked (and answered) several years ago ! In any case the status bar at the bottom of the window tells you exactly how long and at what angle the line you are drawing is, which may not have been available wh...

Re: join lines at overlapping nodes

I join nodes all the time in Inkscape. I find the node and path editing commands in Inkscape to be better and smarter than other programs. Selecting nodes is multi featured as well. This page is an extremely useful reference for the hard-coded shortcuts, which can't be seen in the GUI (although I'm ...

Re: Export to PNG with custom color palette

Turning off antialiasing for the display makes no difference for PNG exports, it's pretty easy to check this, but of course I am running the standard version of Inkscape so this may not apply to special versions, if there is a version where this is different I would definitely want to use it (unless...

Re: Export to PNG with custom color palette

Export at a higher resolution than needed (2-4x). Open it in an image editor, resize it down with no antialiasing and save it as a 64 color png. Maybe convert it to 64 color first if your editor supports an indexed mode.
This generally works although you might have to clean up a bit.

Re: Image not rendering properly outside of Inkscape

I have probably done the same as Polygon, but here are the steps I took for your future reference: 1 release the mask 2 select the mask and break apart 3 delete the rectangle, duplicate the circle (Obviously these first three steps won't be necessary when starting from scratch, just draw the circle!...

Re: Text based logo creation

So I am offering a more wonky and irregular take since TD has done the accurate version - less Bauhaus and more my house! Mine is spiral based and a second one using a tapered spiral ... The first outline view shows the spiral and the rectangles used to add and subtract from it

Re: How to move a text frame using snapping

a better way from the beginning is to draw a rectangle and type the text elsewhere then select the two and do Flow into frame. Your textbox is not directly editable now but follows any changes made to the rectangle, which is editable and snappable like any other rectangle. You can't rotate it though...

Almost all the time you are dead on, Lazur, and probably this time too! But I don't understand what you mean about the gradient fill...

Re: Water

Inkscape is not set up to calculate the intersections of 3D objects. It is strictly 2D vector drawing. Your best bet is to get a simple 3D modeler to make the picture and trace it in Inkscape. If you really want work from scratch, the intersection line of two spheres is always a circle, seen in pers...
