I know this has been mentioned before. Some people think it would be
handy to save an SVG file from Inkscape as an XCF maintaining layers. I
was going to have together a quick output extension in python and an
accompanying script-fu for the gimp to make this happen, but I don't
think we have the appropriate export options.
It would be really fun to have a single command to export all the layers
at once to something like filename-0001-layername.png, but I don't know
how widely applicable that would be. According to the man page,
--export-id forces the object's bbox for --export-area. I think this
makes what I want to do impossible. I would suggest we make canvas size
ALWAYS default and add an --export-bbox option. This would mean more
typing for the people who already use this functionality, but it would
IMHO make more sense overall.
What is the current level of support for OpenType fonts with
postscript-like outlines? It seems to be not at all; my font works well
in Scribus (1.32, Win32) and other windows applications, but isn't
available in Inkscape (recent svn build). Generally what handles fonts
now? freetype, Windows, pango or or or own code?
I'm trying to compile Inkscape on Cygwin. I keep getting this during
checking for INKSCAPE_CFLAGS...
checking for INKSCAPE_LIBS... /cygdrive/c/gtk/lib/
Package gdkmm-2.4 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gdkmm-2.4.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively you may set the INKSCAPE_CFLAGS and INKSCAPE_LIBS environment
to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for
The odd thing is that I have downloaded gtkmm devel from here:

I just checked in a change to make the style minibar a target for
color drag-n-drop. You can now drag colors from the swatches palette
onto either the fill or stroke indicators to change the current object.
Also, this should work with any apps doing a standard color drag-n-
drop. I've tried this with The GIMP and also the 'font and colors'
preference settings for gedit. I'd be interested in seeing which
other apps do and do not work will with this.
Also, since I fixed how color is dragged *from* the swatches, other
programs should accept colors dragged from Inkscape.
