Re: How can I install Inkscape on a Ubuntu machine

Yeah I was afraid of that. Like I said I have worked for a week now on getting a connection set up. I have looked up articles and gone to the Ubuntu forums. Although some very good folks have helped or at least tried to help there is still no internet and plenty of frustration. How long did it take ...

Question about version for use on Ubuntu machine

I just installed Ubuntu on a laptop my son gave me. This is my very first foray into the world of Linux and I'm rather having fun so far this first day. I'm not sure which version of Inkscape to install. As far as version I mean what am I looking for as the file type. I want to try the Inkscape 0.47...

Create 3D boxes tool not working

I have used the Create 3D boxes tool before but lately when I select the tool and drag on the page I get nothing. I wonder if I need to reinstall the app. Anyone else having a problem? What else can I do? Any suggestions?

Windows Vista user (yeah I know but that is what I have at the moment).

Node snapping question

I have node snapping to node set in the document prefs. I have an oval I made with the ellipses tool and made a straight line segment with the pen tool. I can drag a point on the line segment and snap it to any of the four nodes in the oval (even though only three nodes appear). But when I turn the ...

Re: inkscape 0.46

Well you know anytime someone uses the term "buggy" that causes caution to come into play. So I was just thinking of playing it safe. But yes you are right which is probably what I will do barring any major crashes. I poked around in version 0.46 (Inkscape 0.45+0.46pre2+devel, built Feb 21...

Re: inkscape 0.46

I have been using 0.45 on my Window Vista machine for not quite a week now and so far I haven't experience many mishaps. Except for the menus not rendering properly ie. when moused over the names turn to white. So it sounds like I can download version 0.46 and run it to import PDF files then save th...

Re: Is there a way to have Inkscape open in maximized window?

Well I should have said that sort of does it. For some reason the full size window is opening up shifted down by at least a title bar height. I have to either manually grab the window and move it up or click the Maximize button in the top right corner.

Re: Importing eps files into Inkscape

Thats a drag man. Thanks for the info. What about if I open them up in Illustrator and save them as an older ai file? I have access to Illustrator at work but don't work with it very much. I seems like I can import those kinds of files if I read it right.

[solved] How do I retract a handle of a corner node

In FreeHand I could click a button and retract a handle back into the point or node. Is there an efficient way to do that in Inkscape?

Re: Is there a way to have Inkscape open in maximized window?

:) Thanks. That does it. That is an interesting way of doing this sort of thing. I have set templates up before in other applications but the window size had nothing to do with the template so much.

[soIved] Is there a way to have Inkscape open in maximized

When I open Inkscape I get a small window and I have to manually maximize the window to fill my computer screen. Is there a way to set it so it will open to fill the screen every time with the page centered?
