    effect.affect()
  File "/usr/share/inkscape/extensions/inkex.py", line 268, in affect

    InkscapePlugin(self.document,nodes.keys(),inkex)
  File "/home/chris/.config/inkscape/extensions/inkcut/app/main.py", line 473, in InkscapePlugin
    app = Application(svg,nodes,inkex)

    self.plot.loadGraphic(self.nodes)
  File "/home/chris/.config/inkscape/extensions/inkcut/app/bin/path.py", line 69, in loadGraphic
    self.graphic = Graphic(svgPathNodes)
  File "/home/chris/.config/inkscape/extensions/inkcut/app/bin/path.py", line 408, in __init__
    self.data = self.toBasicPaths(self.fromSVG(svgElements))
  File "/home/chris/.config/inkscape/extensions/inkcut/app/bin/path.py", line 546, in fromSVG
    raise AssertionError("Cannot handle tag '%s'"%(tag))

The error message says that Inkcut cannot deal with texts.

Try to select all texts (select one, right-click on it, go to Select Same -> Object type, if in Inkscape 0.92 or higher - else select each text manually), then convert the texts to paths (Path -> Object to path).
Something doesn't work? - Keeping an eye on the status bar can save you a lot of time!

Too bad they can't make certain error messages meaningful for users. I usually think of a Traceback, as something that's meaningful for developers, or at least the author of the extension. But if it's about something the user did (or didn't do), it seems to me like that ought to be in regular text, rather than code (which is essentially worthless to users).
