Splitting a puzzle piece

Postby Aisne » Sun May 29, 2016 2:40 pm

Is it possible to split and make a puzzle piece in Inkscape? I'm not talking about your standard puzzle piece. I want to make a rectangle and then in the center add a curved or jagged line. Then join the two and somehow split the image so that I have two puzzle halves. Hope that makes sense. Am I able to do this in Inkscape?

You said image (as in raster image). Maybe this thread is related ?

Thanks but that isn't exactly what I am looking for. Here is a picture of what I am trying to do. They're for educational puzzles.

Thats a Boolean Operation then. Division.

You can use Division to cut with a combined path a rectangle into individual puzzle pieces at once:

If that´s what you´re after.

That's exactly what I am looking for. Could you give me instructions on what to do?

Do you not realize, you got the same information in every reply so far ? Polygon told you the exact steps.

Sorry! When I tried it the first time after you said Boolean Operation and divide it didn't work out which is why I asked for instruction thinking I did something wrong and wanted to see what I did wrong but I have now got it right.
