Just a little question:
Would it be possible to set the Reply-To field to
"inkscape-user(a)lists.sourceforge.net" instead of to the person that
wrote to the list?
Just go to here: https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/admin/inkscape-user
and put in the admin password. Then under "Where are replies to list
messages directed?" you can set it to "This list."
It does however say that "Poster is _strongly_ recommended for most
lists," could anyone explain that to me? It talks about reply to
munging... I guess that could be an issue?
What does everyone think about this? Should it be changed? I just think
it's annoying to have to change it every time!

I found bug: when I import png image 726x88 px,
in Inkscape it has 580x70pt. Mean pt pixels?
Is there any chance to modify image size
with transoform panel to exact size with constrained ratio?
I had a few more beginners questions.
#1 - If I have drawn to overlapping shapes, is there a way to combine them into one shape?
#2 - When I drew a circle or ellipse it had a dark black border. Can you change the color of this border?
#3 - When I try to apply a gradient fill to a shape, the color changes to shades of black, grey, and white. Is there something I need to change to apply gradient fills in color?
#4 - Is there a way to change the rotation angle of text?
Thanks for any suggestions. I appreciate any help.

Just wondering if the Inkscape guys have contacted the GIMP devel team
and discussed common library routines that could be shared or even
become part of GNOME Office?

I did not try printing these particular files, but I'm afraid they are not
optimized for printing (to put it mildly). They are much larger than
standard page, especially the tutorial, and Inkscape cannot yet break large
things into pages for printing. They are intended for on-screen perusal. Try
to draw something in a new document within a canvas frame and print it; if
this works then the problem is with the tutorial size, not with Inkscape

I did not consider bevels specifically because I never use them in Xara.
Perhaps they will fit into the same filters framework as the gaussian blur.
You can search the SVG spec, it may have some provisions as to bevels. SVG
compliance is a must for us, so if you suggest a feature, you'll get bonus
points for explaining how it could be represented in SVG.

Sure, that's to be implemented on a much closer timeframe than filters
(which I'm afraid are rather distant, unless an interested developer joins
us to work on them). What you refer to is bitmap fill (an arbitrary path
filled with bitmap), and it actually works already, but has no UI yet.

It's done for the Linux version, although the support varies depending on
the window manager you use. On Windows, this trick does not seem to work
properly, and we haven't had time yet to investigate the proper approach.

Dialogs are unlikely to become dockable to the document window (if only
because you may have many document windows, while the dialogs are supposed
to be shared between them). But ultimately they may become dockable to each
other, a la Gimp.
