How to save PNG to desktop Not working

Postby Loriblackdog » Thu Sep 26, 2019 9:41 pm

Hi All,

I am fairly new to Inkscape and I have done this before with no problem. I open up a vector image and I do trace bitmap, move my trace image to the right, then right click on original image cut, save as svg, then I export as png to my desktop, excepts it never show up????? Can someone please explain in detail what I might be doing wrong, as I said I am trying to learn and I learn by doing it myself. I greatly appreciate any help you can send my way. Again Thank You

Type the location and filename including ".png" using no quotes in the Export-as box?

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/

If one looks closely at the attached picture, it will be evident that png files are exported to a location specified by the user.

Have a nice day.

The custom setting is set to zero, I'd try the page or drawing buttons.
