Dear Inkscape developers,
Sibelius is a Qt-based application that uses Qt's built-in SVG support
to export SVG graphics. These SVGs open fine in various web browsers
(e.g. Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer), but the text does not
appear correctly in Inkscape.
Please see the attached example. Does this problem lie on Inkscape's
side, or on Qt's side?

So if you're on these mailing list, you know the deal :-) There are a
couple build fixes in this update.
I've recently finished implementing my feature, that is, arrange objects
in a circular shape. Here you can find the proposal I wrote before
My source code is available on launchpad at:
And for all ubuntu users out there, there is a ppa called:
Where I have compiled packages of my branch. The package name is:
I would be great if someone could check my branch out! (And maybe one
day, it could be pulled in trunk :D)
Thank you in advance,
After calling an Inkscape extension which generates output on stderr, a little info box pops up that says:
"Inkscape has received additional data from the script executed. The script did not return an error, but this may indicate the results will not be as expected."
That's all fine, but how do you actually return an error code from a script? I tried "sys.exit(1)", but that didn't work.
Is there an example script shipped with Inkscape that returns an error?
Many thanks for an answer,
Hi Inkscape devs,
In the current Ubuntu 12.04 LTS release, when printing without print
preview, Inkscape submits print jobs with zero sized media, causing
print failure . I have just subscribed the "Inkscape Bug Team"; is
there anything else that needs doing to get the bug report into

We really need to do something with regards to the wiki making it
harder to sign up spam accounts, we seem to be getting a couple of
dozen of junk accounts a day, with most days having no new legit
I dont want to stop people being able to sign up easily, but at the
same time, the way we currently has it seems to be balanced all wrong.
Who is it that has admin rights for stuff like wiki extensions and the
I'm working on a technical drawing which is made up of a large number of
objects, with a rather limited number of basic styles (this is common in
engineering - drawings have layers with a different line style for each layer).
So, I created a layer for each style: one layer for dashed lines, one layer for
shapes with white fill and no stroke, etc.
As it turned out, it was difficult to just draw all of the shapes of one style
and then move to another, as they had to interact. So, as I was moving across
the drawing and adding shapes, I had to continually set the style to match the
current layer I was drawing in. What I really wanted was something like
Photoshop's "layer style", Or layers in CAD drawings, where whatever you draw on
a layer receives the same style.
I was able to do this using the XML editor by copying and pasting the style
attributes of existing shapes into the layer nodes, and unsetting the fill and
stroke for new shapes. Whatever I drew after that received the layer style.
Now my question is this: Is there a mechanism in place to do this without
editing the XML? If not, do you think there should be? I think it would be
as the problem is still there I would propose following intermediate solution:
currently in the codebasis there is also an pdf import via
poppler-cairo. This one is disabled.
I would like to enable this as an additional pdf import possibility.
We have to decide later when it comes to the release which one to
integrate into the release.
so we can test in parallel the two options.
we have a big tester basis (compared to separate launchpad branch)
we get the possibility to switch to an tested poppler-internals
independent solution (while using poppler)
I there is no big NONO I will go forward and enable this within the next days.
attached the patch that is needed for this (tested on windows, should
work on Linux)
Just wondering what the official position is on the 0.47.x branch. A
number of bug reports have been filed recently about build failures
with recent versions of Glib, Poppler etc. At the moment, we list
0.47.x as being supported , but as far as I know, we have no plans
to backport any fixes for the build failures, so it isn't actually
usable on current linux distros. As such, would it be appropriate to
"retire" the branch and encourage users to upgrade to 0.48.x?
