I was looking into fixing
https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1707919 and, after compiling a
recent Inkscape version I noticed that the behavior of knot changed wrt.
selection and dragging compared to 0.92.x.
After some research on the mailing list I found the change mentioned
I can see the benefit of keeping knots selected to be able to move
them with the keyboard but I still find the new behavior a little
unintuitive, at lest for shape editing:
1. The colors of the mouse-over and selected states are the same,
maybe the coloring scheme of node paths can be copied: where
mouse-over color is different from the selected and dragging colors
which are the same.
2. Previously selected knots look still selected when _another_ knot
is dragged without pressing Shift.
Steps to replicate:
1. Change size of a rect using one corner.
2. Then change the size using the opposite corner.
The firs corner looks still selected.
3. Shift-click does not really select arc knots for ellipses, or
rounding knots for rects, because this action is already used for
something else, e.g. to close the arc instead.
Would it be possible to use Ctrl-Shift-click for the current
function and leave Shift-click for the normal select behavior?
IMHO this would be more consistent.
4. Dragging with the mouse only affects the last selected knot, even
if multiple ones are selected, but this is not a big deal, the
behavior is different compared to path nodes, but both make sense
I'll resume working on https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1707919
after the details from above are sorted out, to avoid overlapping
When verifying 1. I also noticed that path nodes change their size when
clicked the _first_time_ but then get smaller again if the object
is unselected and re-selected; however this is unrelated to the message
above, I'll file a separate bug report for that if it can considered a
bug, what do you think?
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
Hi Developers and Community Members,
we are currently planning to have an Inkscape hackfest in Kiel, in
It was suggested it could take place this year's autumn/fall already,
and I was able to reserve a conference room in a startup center close to
the city's university for early September, from Sun, 2018-09-09 until
This will be during the 'Digitale Woche Kiel', a city-wide event week
that aims to introduce people to IT and technology, and just before the
'Kieler Open Source und Linux Tage', a local conference with workshops,
talks and an exhibition about Linux and Open Source software.
The Inkscape Board has not voted on funding of the event yet.
Details about the proposed Hackfest can be found at:
If you are interested in attending the Hackfest in Kiel in September,

the Hackfest, or that you would like to suggest for discussion, here:
I’m going to be writing tests for the newer extensions. I just want to make sure I have the right github repository. This is the one I cloned: git clone git@...3601...:inkscape/inkscape.git
Is there a more updated one? I couldn’t find any in the documentation but wanted to make sure.

Hi! I’m a Computer Science student at Federal University of Technology in
Brazil and my group it’s doing a research about Inkscape. The focus of this
work is at studying Human-Computer Interaction aspects, by collecting
opinions from community and analyzing issues related to User Experience at
Launchpad. It would be a great help if you can take a few minutes of your
time to answer the questions of this form. Your identity will not be

I've been refactoring the extensions code and while working on the
paths support, I've become blocked on the rotate path functionality and
It's supposed to be able to rotate each of the points in the point list
around the center x,y and it's based on the original code.
But I have two problems. Firstly, I can't seem to find a way to get
inkscape to output the kind of rotated path that would make writing a
trustworthy test easier (and I don't know how to do the calculations by
And secondly, I'm not entirely sure if the original code worked or not.
If you know anything about geometry or the original python, can you
take a look at https://gitlab.com/inkscape/extensions/blob/master/inkex
/paths.py#L92 which is the code in question and https://gitlab.com/inks
cape/extensions/blob/master/tests/test_inkex_paths.py#L124 which is the
respective test code. Tests can be run with `python3 setup.py test -s

First to all thanks to all make this happend.
To me is very dificult attend conferences and code at the same time, my
goal to this LGM not success but now I'm nearest with the help I recive
Allow link SVG into a SVG as image element.
My second goal is make image paths work relative and I couldent get
Short work done :(
