As a result of my comment and concern about a long "warning" message
which was meant to remind bug reporters about what kind of info needs to be
included in the bug report,
details here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1774404
and also, it was the first time I realized that Help menu > Report a Bug goes
directly to the Report Bugs page of the website
which in it's current state does not really perform as that kind of a function
(it's more informational than instructional), Patrick and I have overhauled that
page. We wanted to put the proposed change to the website team, before setting
Here's the proposed new page (of course the red text at the top would be
removed before going "live"):
Purposely, the link to LP is at the bottom, to force users to at least skim
through the bolded requirements before starting the new report.
Any comments, suggestions, etc. are welcomed.
PS - Just realized we probably should put some kind of inspirational "thank you"
sentence at the bottom. "Thank you and congratulations for contributing to
Inkscape" or something??
For some time, I have noticed that the menu of the Inkscape website has
become buggy, whereas I had spent some time to make it work very well
and responsively some time ago — :/. Could someone tell me what is the
intention behind this change (which from my point of view is a regression)?
Some of the bugs:
* the main menu items font size does not diminish if the texts are too
long to fit on one line (case in French, in Deutsch…);
* there is a small black line between the submenu items (which might not
be a bug, but that wasn’t the case before);
* in the smallest view, the main menu items have wrong spaces between
them and wrong rounded borders;
* in the smallest view, the submenu items overflow of the menu box;
* in the middle view, the black background is missing, there are also
wrong rounded borders, and the submenu items appear with a wrong space
between them and the main menu item.
I'm not sure if this needs to be reported as a bug or not. I noticed
the new little banner about donating for next hackfest, and I wonder if it has
something to do with the change in how the gallery is layed out?
Normally for me the gallery has 4 columns of images, but now it's 3.

little banner is in the space where the 4th column would be. So it seems like
the banner might have pushed the images over (so to speak).
I also noticed the search box got really small. Not sure if that might
I'm using SeaMonkey browser, in case it matters. Let me know if you
want a bug report :-)
If anyone happens to be following it, I've been discussing the need for
some kind of reminder for people reporting bugs, to include the proper info in
their report, in this bug report:
As somewhat of an aside, I realized that Help menu > Report a bug,
connects directly to that page; and also that the page really is not set up
properly to be part of the route or process for reporting a bug. I think the
page originally was meant just to provide info, and not necessarily be part of
the process of bug reporting. So I thought I would create a proposed edit for
The reason I'm posting this message, is that it's been so long since
I've done any work on the website, I can't remember the proper way to do this.
Because it will be a fairly major edit, I was thinking I would make a new page,
just to have some working space. I'm afraid if I edit the actual page, someone
might accidentally publish the page, before it's finished.
I'm almost positive it should be ok to start a new page. I do recall
that I need to take it out of the menu, immediately after I create the page. I
don't expect the page itself will be used in the end. When it's finished, I'll
just overwrite the current page, and publish that. And then delete this new
If there's a better way to approach this, please let me know.
Meanwhile, since I'm pretty sure this will be ok, I'm going to already get
