Re: Saving as eps for Microstock

I'm guessing you set the background colour in the document preferencies. Add an opaque rectangle to the background instead, that will surely work. I'm not that familiar with the eps format, and I cannot open inkscape saved eps-s with inkscape. Weird. The program used cairo, which took the pdf saving...

Re: Overlapping text colours behind a gradient

You could simply group the text object together. That way you can get the effect done correctly on each.

Re: Sizeing an image pixel to Cm or mm

Re: Saving as eps for Microstock

Deleting a node won't result in opening the path. You can open a closed path by selecting two nodes next to each other and unconnecting them with the node editor tool. Calligraphy tool creates closed paths Don't know if eps needs grouping. Its all "grouped" together if its on one layer. Di...

Re: Caligraphy Tool and Zoom Issue

By default calligraphy tool's line width is defined by the screen zooming, but you can set it to be an absolute value at its preferency panel.
Shift+Ctrl+P, or by double clicking on the tool's icon.

Re: Interiors and Furniture Tutorials?

Drawing interior scenes needs a deep knowledge of perspective drawing. To me it seems a better idea to model such in blender in 3D. Even if you want to have a 2D vector as a final result, starting with blender would help you choosing the right viewpoint, help the placement of the furniture and with ...

Re: Stuck trying to Create Objects from Picture Elements

Would not suggest to uncombine the path for editing as with the "blobs" style you get overlapping paths. Even if all have the same colour and some transparency, it's not giving the feel of the actual drawing's. You can use the node editor tool for this purpose without the unkombining. Mayb...

Re: Cannot save DXF with command line?

Sorry I was misreading and was thinking of converting dxf to svg. Then my guess would be there are things in the svg that is not handled well by the export. As dxf is a cad format, would filter effect, blurring, alpha channel, even gradients matter? Or layers and groups. Some problems can be even wi...

I never tried this before but my guess is that if the dxf is broken itself, you cannot convert it to svg from command line.

The most useful way of drawing lines is just how you did. Position control points connected with straight lines, then use the node editor tool to create good curves.

Who knows? If the grunge was to be transparent -one colour screen printing-, one simple clipping with the letters on a grunge pattern drawn that way wouldn't do the job.

Re: Saving as eps for Microstock

Layers are not part of the svg standard.
Inkscape implements the use by creating groups, so inkscape layers might not work even on inkscape svgs opened in illustrator.
As I know postscript document format was created for priners, and not for further editing work.
