Re: Problems Dividing a Rounded Rectangle

Just added a simple gradient.
You can set such fill at the stroke and fill panel -Shift+Ctrl+F.

Re: Problems Dividing a Rounded Rectangle

There are more different ways of doing that.
In the svg below there are five, I would go with the right one.
By clipping the objects to shape.

But others may suggest a different approach.

I have no idea, chrome didn't load such ads here.
But if it would, then browsing on firefox, the adblocker add on could get rid of it.

Re: font in svg but there is nothing there (bug?)

Opened your file and cannot see anything.
What do you want with that? Change the font inside the svg?
There is a font-family section in the codes, that was set to sans;
in the attached version, it is changed to arial.

Re: Positioning by centre of circle

Here is another method described in the attachment, with the use of the align and distribute panel.
With that, you can get coordinate values as well.

Edit: Wasn't sure of what went wrong, here is a more detailed description than the previous.

Re: Silver Silk Wave (like on PCLinuxOS 64 bit logo).

I was mentioniong the zooming instead of the exporting because no matter how much you zoom in, the same amount of pixels will be rendered. Yes, at your example, there should be more rectangles with a higher zoom value, but most of the things fall outside the screen. Like googlemaps, if you zoom in ...

Re: Silver Silk Wave (like on PCLinuxOS 64 bit logo).

Off topic:
The implementation problem is one thing, but what's with the wrong performance?
Either you open a blurred object in inkscape or in a browser, the performance gets exponently slow with linear zooming.
If it was rendering the same way as a non-raster object, I would expect no such problem.

Re: Silver Silk Wave (like on PCLinuxOS 64 bit logo).

The save as pdf was on my mind. Not that it would be a problem for any fixed -and small- image size to be used like on wallpapers, but with print ready files. Vectors could handle much larger images, than any raster image -in that case, rasterised filter- could follow. You can print images up to 1,...

Re: Difficulty with drop shadow filter

I cannot reproduce the problem with blurring a normal or a flowed text.
Maybe you should update to the latest version of inkscape (?), or, if nothing works, convert the text to path.

Re: Silver Silk Wave (like on PCLinuxOS 64 bit logo).

You can draw similar things with blurring some paths -in my opinion the way you can get the closest- , but keep in mind that blurring is a raster based filter, so creating an svg for that kind of image is not the best solution. Until gradient mesh will work properly in inkscape, there is no "go...

If you want all the fill styles to be copied, select the object with the style, press Ctrl+C, then select the object you want to add that style, and press Shift+Ctrl+V.

Re: snapping arch's end to guide line

Moving on with the construction, other snapping problems appear: Bounding box corner doesn't snaps to path, while rectangle tool does by the handle. It's not lethal, the rectangle tool can work here. BUT the other thing would be important: how to snap exactly to the intersection of a path and a guid...

Re: Converting raster to vector

You better not use auto-tracing. It will not give you paths with a good topology, what this kind of drawings need.
The next step would be node editing. Basically the same thing that you would do when drawing things manually.

Edit:
Attached some guiding on the workflow.

Re: snapping arch's end to guide line

For the construction I needed to divide each arch into equal sections.
Tried the modify extension to do that on a spiro spline, but it didn't work.
It decreased the number of nodes instead of adding new ones.
And spiro splines can produce weird stuff, like in the attached file.

Re: snapping arch's end to guide line

It's more of a theoretic question, now that I went with this approximate version, and realised that the arch in itself has bigger inaccuracy than the end point coordinates have.

It is a part of a bigger project, that I would like to construct some circle arches for. -file attached- All the arches should be concentric, with the same radius, and with the same starting point. Only the ending point should differ, I would like to snap them to the guide lines, but I can't get it ...

An important question to start, is how it will be used? The uncleanyness is caused by anti-aliasing. Your png's colours went like indexed gif's palettes, that is adding some more troubles. If you want this to be printed, you better save it to a vector svg, avoiding problems from anti-aliasing. If no...
