Design Notes

Postby ptallman » Tue Nov 05, 2019 1:05 am

I've searched around and can't find if there's a spot to make design notes. I typically design for cutting files and am constantly going back and forth with various fonts. Once I prepare my design to cut, I lose the ability to see what font I used. Is there anywhere I can go within the file and create notes I'll want to refer back to later? I would love to see a dialog box that I could dock with my other ones.

I put a generous amount of text into the Description field of the metadata tab (in Document properties).

It might not be totally kosher from a standard SVG standpoint, but it is easy enough to see it all in the XML editor when you open the file in Inkscape.

Have a nice day.

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/

I'll try to keep that tab open and get in the habit of making my notes in there. Thanks so much!
