Please visit http://www.inkscape.org to learn more, join our User

Bryce said I should post this here, so here goes:
I've created an icon tutorial for Inkscape 0.37 on my site, at
It should be useful for anyone wanting to learn the basics of Inkscape
and how to use it to make icons. Although only two tutorials are
finished, I plan on doing more (taking screenshots and cutting them up
and such takes quite a bit of time, you know!).
Let me know what you think :)
If there are any specific requests I could look into that as well!
Before I forget: I'm hosting myself on a DSL line, so the pages may/will
load slowly; please be patient (and don't slashdot me!)

With Myrk's nifty ribbon.svg submission and Simarilius' SVG Signs
contribution this morning, we're now officially ready to receive SVG
clipart collections for Inkscape.
Clipart is extremely important for users of vector art programs, because
it can save a lot of time when making certain kinds of drawings, and to
provide examples users can start with when making their own creations.
I think it'd be most effective (and fun) to leave this process fairly
open ended and flexible, since that's how we like to do things in this
project. What we plan to do is treat each clipart "collection" as it's
own discrete package, that is welcome to set its own rules and
conventions as its contributors see fit. We'll distribute a few with
Inkscape itself, others can be provided as separate add-ins.
So, if you want you can establish your own collection of just your own
work, or can collaborate with other users for a group effort. You can
set up some organization and standards for quality control or to
maintain a theme, or leave it freeform. Whatever works best for you.
Let's collect info and ideas about Clipart Collections on this wiki
page, to document HOWTO's, ideas, questions, guidelines, etc.:
If you want to start working on a clipart collection, please feel free
to add a link to the appropriate page(s) there.
we're currntly looking for someone to create some cool digital version
of our maskot Gnobble . It would be really cool of someone with
experience in digital imaging could do this for us.

I'm glad that you like Inkscape, it is great to see that it is useful
for people. Unfortunately, the arrowheads (we call them markers) are
incomplete at this time so they are not shown in the GUI. Hopefully,
they'll be ready very shortly as they are a useful feature for many
people. If you want to see a preview, there is a screenshot of them on
Also, we've created the Inkscape User list which I've CC'd. This is a
good place for you to ask questions, and also share stuff that you've
learned about Inkscape.
Thanks for your interest,

Just wanted to give y'all a heads up that we've completed work on the
0.37 release, and are building packages right now. We plan to announce
it within a couple days, but if you keep an eye on our download page on
SourceForge, the packages should start appearing there today.
The release notes can be found here:

The screenshot looks like either your Arial only contains Latin-1 (West
European) charset, or Inkscape is only able to see this charset in the font.
The second is more likely. I will file a bug and hopefully we'll be able to
fix this soon.
