sometime ago we discussed the idea of making a default document open
when inkscape is first installed, perhaps only opening on the first time
use of inkscape, perhaps until the user changes their default document
The idea was to have inkscape check for ~/.inkscape/default.svg and open
that for "run without any parameters", and if ~/.inkscape/default.svg
were missing, to use the system wide default.svg given in
doc/default.svg. This gives us the ability for users to start with
their prefered document options (such as page size, colour, etc). The
tutorial should explain how this works so that the user can change the
default easily (checkbox in save?).
I'm suggesting we try and get this in for this release, particularly if
someone can work on the tutorial to explain some of the features that
people tend to miss when they first try out inkscape(knots, offsets,
printing to .ps). I'm writing to you because you would be the best
person to implement the logic for this (I think?).
