Since it's my first attempt at trying to make things improve in a
software, using cvs, and trying to understand a whole project (and
written in c++... sometimes), please don't be too harsh on me and on my
english level, I'm just a little frenchy :)
Very used to illustrator, I miss some little things that make life
easier, like moreeffective snapping.
So I tried to understand the whole object tree, reading both the doxygen
and the code (...when there were comments) and finally managed to have a
patch made. The functionnality is a pretty little one, I just made
guides highlight when moved objects snap against them. For now, this
only works for dragged objects and rectangles being drawed.
I post this for anyone to check if I do right, naming functions,
indenting, thinking the whole problem, so please, feel free to
over-comment my "work", for me to know if I can go on with these kind of
updates. This is the first patch of my life, I hope I've made it well.
Could you test that ?
Next things I could look at could be :
- Snapping modes (enable/disable) Bounding box and dots snapping. I
thik it could be great too temporarily disable bounding box snapping,
just to make sure only dots do it.
- Providing visual feedback of which of these is used now (you grab
a rectangle, its bounding box snaps a guide, the guide turns red
(default highlight color), and a little text appears along the guide
saying (snapping to boungbox). If you drag farther, the boundingbox will
stop snapping and it's the corner dot that will do, so the text'll be
"dot snapping" or something like this... maybe snapped dots could be
- Making grid lines highlight when snapped, just like guides (it was
much easier for guides since they are separate objects and the
color/hicolor alread existed)
- Trying to make more snapping objects... maybe angled guides,
objects themselves, middle of objects, etc... all these could be mode
What do people think ? What feature would you like most ?
i have some trouble getting this to work..
when i want to build setup.py i get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):

IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:
i have no idea how to go on from that...
am I missing something else? there is no /include-Folder @
and i don't have pyconfig.h in the python2.3 - folder (which is @
..if this info is of any help..
thanks for any help
I'm trying to hack Inkscape 0.4.3 to compile on Solaris 10 x86, with
Sun Studio 11.
Right now i'm stuck at the following:

2 Error(s) and 5 Warning(s) detected.
I suspect I need to correctly cast
SP_OBJECT_PARENT(this)->firstChild(), this)," (line 284 of
sp-item.cpp) so that it resolves to
"reverse_list(InputIterator start, InputIterator end)" in reverse-list.h.
Am I right about this? If so, could someone enlighten me on how to
cast it correctly? (I'm no C++ expert).
Many thanks in advance. :)
The good news is that svg2crs foo.svg | crs2xar > foo.xar is almost
The bad news is that I can't figure out the "right way" to get inkscape
units into inches. I found some constants in src/unit-constant.h which
tell me that 90 units / inch is set at compile-time, but it seems like
the svg file should contain something which makes that explicit.
Of course, the svg spec only rambles on about user-agents determining
something from their environment, but that seems way wrong for the
uber-converter (what's the dpi of your terminal?) I guess svg was
never intended to convey real-world dimensions?
So, it looks like 90 units/inch is a good assumption, but I don't like
to assume. Is there a "right way" to do this and/or is it something
that inkscape should be writing into its svg?

With latest CVS and an experimental Debian the text and font dialogue
crashes right on trying to launch it. any clue, what might be wrong?
Furthermore we're right now trying to do a script that makes it possible
to extract the icons form the icons.svg in to single files.
Let's see, how it works out.
I would like to ask web site maintainers to emphasize
the information (if it exists) on the download page that
Win98/ME is no longer supported.
Reason: continuing bug reports on SF and IRC.
