Postby NielsAct6 » Fri Aug 23, 2013 9:33 pm

I have a logo and like to seperate the icon from the text. How can I do that?

You might try selecting the logo and using the Ungroup button to make each element an object.

Then, any elements/objects can be selectively grouped, cut, copied, pasted.
Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/

You can ungroup objects by pressing Ctrl+Shift+G, group them back by pressing Ctrl+G when selected.
Some unnecessary clipping was involved that is now left out on these:

Top!!, That worked. I tried the ungroup before but probably didn't select the oblect before.

Thanks!
