Being a Windoze user, most of the Unix stuff is over my head, but the Inkscape tutorials are brilliant.

I have your three Inkscape specials with all the articles up to #24. Is there any chance of gathering articles 25 onwards (now up to #40!) into a single pdf?

Hi styxlawyer, thanks for the kind words. I try to keep the Inkscape stuff fairly platform agnostic, so I'm pleased to hear that you're finding the articles helpful.

I don't create the compilations, I'm afraid, so they just appear when the person who does finds the time. I didn't know the first two were even being worked on until they suddenly popped up on the FCM website one day! Once I complete the whole series I might compile them into a single document myself - but I've still got some way to go before then.

Yes, those are great :) Just one small thing: in 0.91, it's not necessary to ungroup/combine before using bend path effect. It works on groups, too (unlike the PAP effect). Or was there another reason for the ungrouping/combining?

Although they're fairly comprehensive, the tutorials are just meant to give a broad overview of using Inkscape, rather than covering every single detail. In the case of LPEs it seemed easier to describe the method that works with all the LPEs, rather than having to specify which ones work with groups and which ones don't. In the previous instalment I described LPEs as basically being a function that takes a path as an input and produces a path as an output. Although that's not strictly correct (as you mention, the input can also, sometimes, be a group of paths), it's a good enough working definition that I didn't want to confuse things any further.

But it's great that you've read the article enough to pick me up on things like that - I'd rather have people ask questions, as it helps other people (and me!) to learn even more.

Oh - I found the article *very* comprehensive - I don't think I've read something going into so much detail about the xml behind the 'trick' before :)
And it makes sense to give a more general approach that will work with every LPE. Thanks for explaining your reasoning!
