Re: When I save as eps it doesn't work?

Eps cannot save transparency. Your drawing may contain such elements.

Re: My computer too slow need help exporting

Why? There should be a better workaround for creating cmyk pdf-s. Have you searched the scribus and the xara workaround? Or the cmyk inkscape plugin? If I remember right you don't have to export your svg to bitmap. That would reduce the file size dramatically, and won't get your image messed up from...

Re: nelchai's intro and discussion

Have no idea what lead you to these thoughts. You are the one who is forcing the rendering to bitmaps. Data from an svg vector editor to something else. For what end? Svg should be the saving format from a vector drawing tool which is built for creating svg-s. Not any renderfarms for a wysiwyg edito...

Re: How do I make parts of a vector transparent?

By your description it seems that the inner parts are drawn by white objects. Somehow you have to subtract them from the "O"'s. The design scenario you wrote can be made in several ways, and the fixing of the problem can be done in different ways for them. Please provide a more precise exp...

Re: Different object size - moving from Inkscape to Paint.NE

Hmm well anoher thing that may cause this, is that inkscape work is 90 dpi based, and paint.net uses 72.
The dimensions show exactly this.

So you might try to scale all your design down to 80% in inkscape before you copy/paste it to paint.net.

Re: Perspective problem

For me it's the most serious drawback of Inkscape - lack of proper perspective/cage deformation tool.

Re: nelchai's intro and discussion

I have to disagree on many levels on that cad part. None of the applications will ever be using precise mathematical formulas. Nor xml is based on point-cloud-like geometry. It is all of bezier splines. Spiro-splines might be an optinion, but inkscape cannot work with them as good as with the origin...

Re: PDF export, layer mode=multiply nontransparent images

That is because pdf cannot handle multiply. Nor layers. At least not through inkscape I guess. Also, it cannot handle masking with object other than white. But by the look it seems that part is easy to reproduce from paths. Anyway if you embed raster images into the pdf, they all get jpeg compressed...

Re: Different object size - moving from Inkscape to Paint.NE

There may be some problems caused by using a rectangle with a stroke.
Inkscape displays the size of the visual bounding box, not a wireframe object size.

Re: contour

There is an option of inset/outset on the path that if you duplicate the original path and use multiple times on it, you will get similar results,
or use the dynamic offset option to draw each contour line separately in any distances.

Re: Split a path

Use the node editor tool.
Click on the path to select it with it, then double click on the path segment where you want to add the new endpoints.
After that, select the two points next to eachother that you want to disconnect, and
click on the unconnect selected icon at the node editor tool's icons.

Not so sure if it would be really needed as the curved stroke is the only part that I should use this kind of cut-line method, where the small errors from the recent iso-lines wouldn't show up that much.

Working on a 3D letter design, as mentioned before in another thread . As simple as designing a serif letter can get, it became complicated instead.

Re: nelchai's intro and discussion

There are possibilities of adding sounds.
I was browsing in the inkscape files
and discovered there was a line in some codes disabling sound with a #comment
of win users wouldn't like a sound when they press backspace in an empty textbox.
So you may have some luck on that.
