Convert everything to black (not greyscale)

Postby Empy » Tue Mar 13, 2018 11:01 pm

Hi there,

I'd like to convert everything in my image to be pure black (on a white background). I've been using :tool_paintbucket: but it became apparent that this couldn't be the best way. Now I perform the below steps.

Is this the correct way of making my picture strictly black and white or is there a better more "precise" method?

>Select all my objects
>Object Menu
>Fill and Stroke
>select Fill tab >select RGB
>R=0 G=0 B=0 .... and everything seems to go pitch black

That's the right way, but a slightly quicker approach is to select all the objects then just click on the black colour swatch at the bottom left of the Inskcape screen to set the fill colour on all the objects.
