Don't forget to aim for an svg. Illustrator should be able to save straight to svg.
Jet a simple pdf won't be better than an eps file.

Re: Help Removing Gray and Black Checkered Background

Uggh - I´ve never seen a mess like this in my whole vector drawing career in the last 3 decades. That made me curious. Inkscape 0.924 fails to load the eps. The alpha build I have fails to load it too. Imagemagick viewer loads it, but cannot print to pdf as expected. Don't really know what to expec...

Re: How much to charge for commissions?

Hi. It's never an easy part of the job to get paid just about right. Much depends on the quality of your design and quantity of the effort put in. The latter can be priced, the rest is the "extra" if you get going I suppose. Like if you charge more since your "brand" stands out o...

Re: Alphabet Blocks

Honestly they look cartoony and "fine" in small size only.
The perspective and the shadows are way off. If your goal was to achieve a realistic look, I'd suggest using some basic perspective drawing constructions.

Re: Resizing the handle points in the UI

Hi.

Not a solution but you might find the "show handles" path effect useful -available in th current stabile release.
With that you can set a custom node handle size.

Re: Alphabet Blocks

If only the box tool could have a "cubify" button to lock to the proportions of a cube.

Here are some cubes drawn with the box tool. Even though it probably won't help much with random position of the blocks.

Re: Multiple size display of icons

Hi.

In the preferences (Shift+Ctrl+P) under the interface options you can choose from 4 different icon sizes.
Probably you need to restart after setting one.

Whereas in the alpha build there is an option to update icons by a click of a button, choose from five themes and five icon sets etc.

Re: Seamless tiles for fabric design still getting lines between tiles

Hi. By the thin line you describe it sounds like the "rendering gap issue" -a phenomenon present with all current renderers using anti-aliasing. To avoid that you can pixel-fit your image to the exported area. Say if you want to export to a 2000 px/2000 px area, make sure your exported obj...

Hi. Seems that was added intentionally. Without that it'd show the rendering gap issue between the triangles. If you are interested in the overall shape of the ruin, it can be extracted from the clipping object by a few clicks. Ctrl+A - select all ->group of 781 object is selected Ctrl+Enter - enter...

Hi.

Not really.
Blender is a more suitable tool for that. You can unwrap 3D models with it and there are some related addons to provide extra space for gluing.

Just a side note that a there are no ellipses parallel to eachother except for concentric circles in geometry. This case the difference is rather small though.

Re: the export in pixels changes the dimension?

Hi. That seems right. However that affects only the selected filter. You have multiple filter definitions in your file doing the same thing. Probably would be easier to remove all filters from the list, selecting all the objects and applying the pixellize filter to them all at once. Exactly as you h...

The overlaying layer seems a reasonable and easy solution. Although if that's not sleek enough, you might want to cheat a bit more. So you want to clip the document to a certain area? Clip the parent layer. Define the clip object in the defs section. Don't want to clip it anymore? Make the clipping ...
