Re: SVG Filters rendering Bug in 0.47

Are you sure there is a line? With me (0.46 on XP), the Filter often does seem to generate a line, but really only has troubles rendering the filter. Or, if there positively is a line -> In the Filters Dialog, there is a Filter General Settings Tab, in which you can set the area that the filter will...

Re: Flowcharts

The Flowcharts i am used to only incorporate ovals, triangles, squares, squares-standing-on-edge and circles. And of course Arrows. The Ovals are best done with :tool_rectangle: - simply drag the little circle at the edge to the middle to make the edges so round it looks like an oval. Triangle, Squa...

I have a plot, that was made by a little tool in Matlab (dates from 2006). It is basically the svg rendering of a Matlab plot. It comes out just fine, with a little glitch: When i try to open it, it looks fine in the preview of the opening dialog, but then is upside down when it is finally open. As ...

Re: make Lines/Arrows on dark background stand out

The Gradient idea requires mulit-joint lines to be drawn as separate lines, that makes rearranging a little fiddly; - i'm still tinkering with the Filter solution: I thought a Color Matrix, that gets its input from a Guassian Blur of the source image (-> blurry black line)disregards it (all zeros in...

Re: make Lines/Arrows on dark background stand out

The black line shows by itself on the lighter background, on the darker background the white blur gives contrast to it. There is a way to make a line to be always a contrast-color to its background, but i do not like that effect. So the question is: White halo as one-click trick? - Here goes: (sorry...

Re: wikipedia svg has unalterable objects

yes - that did it. Thanks a lot. the lines are called "svg:line" and ( if they have more than one node) "svg:polyline" in the XML editor, and i always assumed the (straight) output from Freehand and Bezier would also become thus, but they all simply become a path...

make Lines/Arrows on dark background stand out

I'm trying to put some names and descriptions close to a drawing i made. The drawing is mostly dark shapes, on a grey background - what i'd like to achieve is a black line from the name to the object, that has a blurry white background. Using two strokes, one of which is fat, white and blurry is, of...

Re: Severed Fifth "Tilted Crest"

I just tried clone-tiling a 700+ node object 40x40. the Object itself gives an 80kb file, the version with the 1600 clones (shifted, rotated, colored and blurred) comes in at 840kb. The rendering grinds my computer to a crawl for some 5 minutes, though. Are you sure it is the cloned tiles that bloat...

Re: Erros in transformation algebra

Why do you call the Transform->Scale product wrong? the x and y origin shift by 1/2 width and heigth, respectively, in other words, the center of the rectangle stays where it is. That is as should be. When manually scaling it (with the mouse), you can press Shift to switch between Scaling 'Out of th...

Looks good - what does "simulated" mean? Do you take the image as a backdrop and then embellish it, or do you copy it? Or something else alltogether?

Strg + + ? i did not recommend that.

"Strg" and "Shift" and " ) " is what i mean. (You could go to Path > Outset, too.)

If Strg A does not work for you, just work at one blob at a time. Select one blob, Do "Outset".
