Make sure to check any groups that the object is in for opacity. Also check the object's opacity value itself (above the 'blur' slider), and its Alpha value (the 4th color slider).

Probably Moini's suggestion will put you on your way. But just in case:

The title of this tutorial is targetted for a slightly different problem. But still, it goes through all the different places where you can check for unwanted transparency: https://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/ind ... article=18

If you still can't figure it out, you're welcome to share the SVG file, and one of us can find it for you. Things can get pretty confusing sometimes, even for people who know Inkscape very well.

It seems like you have set fill to "none" here. I am not sure.

If it is the case, just do:
  • Main Menu > View > Display mode > Outline. Select your desired object.
  • Change its color to other than "none".
  • Main Menu > View > Display mode > Normal. Now your object is filled with a visible color.

If this does not solve the problem, check if opacity is at 100, or greater than 0.
