I saw a relatively new image in the gallery, which seems to be there
for the purpose of advertising, and nothing else. It's not an image made
with Inkscape, or even vector-related.
https://inkscape.org/en/gallery/item/5691/ It seems to be only for the
purpose of advertising tagxedo and tagxedo.com.
Should be allowed? I realize there could be much worse abuses (and
there have been, already), but I'm curious how the Inkscape community sees
this. Thanks for discussion :-)
Sorry, I meant to send this to the list in the first place, just to get the

During discussion about placement Key and Mouse Ref page, I was
looking at the Books and Manuals page, and realized that it doesn't follow
the style on some other pages.
I mean the h3 heading sections, where on other pages, such as Learn,
the heading is a link. Should it be so on Books and Manuals? If yes, I can
Also, should "Manuals and quick references" be split into "Manuals"
and "References"? If so, I can do it :-)
I wonder if anyone else would like to see this, or thinks it should
happen? I've noticed that the Inkscape Keyboard and Mouse Reference has
been moved to the website....some time ago, actually.
Often I want to look something up, on that page, but I don't have
Inkscape open at the moment. (Usually it's to answer forum messages.) I
think it would be nice to have a link to it, in a menu, or somewhere
relatively easy to find....like maybe on the Learn page?
Or is there already a link somewhere, and I just haven't found it
yet? I tried using the site Search. Some results were found, but not that
page. (tried several different search tems)
I'm still here and still willing to do the new responsive version of the website – unfortunately my work is bogging me down right through to my weekends at the moment :-( But as soon as my time frees up a little bit, I'll be back to help out! Sorry about that...
Have you had any news from the other designer, Mathew? Have there been any evolutions since I've been away (features, content, contstraints, people...)?
If you like we can prepare a plan of attack based on current needs and priority items, so that I can get started straight away as soon as I can dedicate time to it (I think in about a month's time).

We have a couple of designers involved, alas they seem to have gotten
busy. If a grand-design becomes available at some point, the website
can implement it; but for now the website has great feedback on style,
layout and professionalism and the focus for the web team is on
functionality and stability in this phase.
(improving the design of some pages is still important as they're
still being developed with the features)

I just made some links on the proposed new animation page that I've
been working on, and saved the page. But something went wrong, and not all
the links worked. (When I clicked on the links, on the saved page to test,
So I went back into the editor and used right-click > Edit Link.
But it does not show the URL, so I can't get any idea what I did wrong. All
I could do was re-create the link, and hope it worked the 2nd time. But not
knowing what I had done wrong, theoretically it could have gone on like that
Will there be any way to have the URL displayed somewhere from the
django editor? I can always close out the editor, and use my browser to see
what it was showing as the URL. But it might not have been the URL that was
the problem. I really don't know what the problem was, in this case,
because I didn't think of using the browser the first time. I just
re-created the links, and now they do work.
When I use Edit Link, the first thing that shows is a small dropdown
menu with 3 options. When I choose URL, it shows me Procol dropdown and a
URL field that's blank. So if we have to use CMS Plugins > Link to correct
a broken link, why bother having Edit Link in the context menu at all?
Thanks for your help :-)
Has anyone else ever noticed how all the capital letters M, on the
website, look like they were typed with a typewriter whose M key has a weak
spring? See attachments.
I guess that must be something to do with the font?
I guess most people would never notice it. But ever since I noticed
it, I can't seem to ignore it!
Anyway, a while ago there was some talk about making a new site,
with responsive design, and I had some wishes for different text/heading
styles, and a few other things.
I'm just curious if anything is happening with that?
