I have been working on a new extension called viewBox..., which is awaiting upload to the Inkscape addons gallery. It is available for preview here: http://ugajin.co.uk/sketchbooks/viewBox/viewBox/viewBox.html, with a bunch of supporting documents.
The problem is what to do with the supporting documents (I do not want to host them on ugajin.co.uk). Whilst, I may upload the extension files, without the supporting documents and/or providing a link to them, this seems to me to be the wrong approach.
The viewBox and its sibling attributes are one of those things, which are not be easily accessed in Inkscape, and those cutting their teeth writing SVG using Inkscape may benefit from the supporting documentation.
Thank you for considering matters.
Thanks to Sylvain, I saw on an french task list (1) that a clear
explanation of the difference between a bitmap/raster file and a vector one
was wanted for the website. I also read a part of the conversation on the
bug report page (2) (not everything as the discussion is quite long :) ).
If it's still on the todo list, I just wanted to mention that the Mapschool
page (3) has a short paragraph that explains the difference between both.
As it's licenced under CC0, it could be partly recycled for the Inkscape
I'm available to help on this topic, but as I don't really know where to
start, a quick heads-up would be appreciated!
Two things have questioned me for a while in the ‘Learn’ part of the
The first is, why are the tutorials in a different order from the
Inkscape program tutorial submenu's?
I guess they're ordered by publication date on the website, but this
detail is quite obsolete now; so could I reorder the tutorials on the
website to match the order in Inkscape's ‘Tutorials’ submenu, which is a
bit more logical?
Second thing: why are all 3rd-level headings on the ‘Books and Manuals’
page underlined? Here, my thought is that it was initially decided to
underline the books' titles. But the keyboard shortcut and command line
references are not really books bound to an author…
I would also recommend that we use italic, as those thick lines have a
look which is a bit hard.
Then we would have Tav's manual and the book in italic.
By the way, aren't there more books about Inkscape? On Packt
Publishing's website, I see there are at least 4 books:
One of them is evoked in an old news article on the Inkscape website:
Maybe we should have a single heading for all books on Packt Publishing
to avoid promoting it. Let me see… Among the 4, 3 are by Bethany Hiitola
and list her (or his?) book with bullets. We could also have a
subsection for Bethany and another for the cookbook. What do you prefer?
For my two things, I'll deal with all languages (unless anybody wants to
help). For the books, I'll call the help of translators as the text will
Is there some reason that we don't change "Addons" to "Extensions"
in the Download menu? I think I might have asked this a long time ago, but
I can't remember the answer, or where I asked it (to search).
