I just downloaded from the Creative Commons website their logos in
SVG format and I cannot get them to load properly in Inkscape 0.38. I
view them just fine in GQView, so I know that they are there, but I get
a blank screen in Inkscape.
Any ideas what's going on?
Release 0.04 of the Open Clip Art Library is now available for download
from the OCAL website:
This release represents over 600 separate images thanks to a number of
artists. The theme of this release is 'Summer'; please see the
RELEASE_0.04.svg file for examples of summer contributions. :-)
All of the clipart in the package are attributed as to their author, and
all images are placed in the Public Domain, allowing use for any
purpose without restriction.
Our goal is to do for vector art what Wikipedia has done for reference
information. We want to build the biggest and most open collection of
free vector art in the world. So if you find these images of use,
please consider contributing back and help us fill in the gaps. For
Our next release will be in late July. In addition to building up the
library further, we will be focusing on categorization.

Thank you. I added the same in Russian and put the file as i18n.svg to
share/examples. The samples are now shown in two generic fonts, Sans
Now we need more languages there! In a few hours, when the file shows up in
and anyone can download it, please add a phrase in _your_ language,
and send it to the list or upload to the patch tracker. Non-Latin
languages (Hebrew, Chinese, Japanese etc) and languages with diacritic
marks are especially welcome.
Please don't use any special fonts; just add your text as new lines to
the same two text objects, so that Pango does automatic font
substitution on its own based on Unicode characters you are using.
This should work for all languages; if something does not work, submit
Thanks in advance!

It exists, it is alive! It will most definitely not be the final
release, but it is a good point to start beating up Inkscape. This is
not for general use, but more for people who follow the development of
Inkscape (being subscribed to this e-mail list is a good start :)
I went ahead and put it in the SF file area with a big nasty note to
scare away casual users. I think that it is as good of place as any...
thoughts are welcome.
I discovered today that you can edit a locked object - size, shape, position
colour of fill and stroke, alpha value (but not position), copy ... maybe
other things ... while keeping it locked. Just TAB to the object and do the
Maybe everyone knows this if so my apologies.
As you know, we recently switched our text system to a new library called
Pango. Now that some of the worst bugs and regressions are fixed (definitely
not all), and we need your help in testing it thoroughly.
1. Here are the confirmed Pango niceties so far (i.e. what is tested and
- Text is much smoother. No more ugly autohinting gaps between letters in
small sizes. Letters move smoothly when you change letterspacing by Alt+<
- Auto kerning pairs (from the font) now work. For example "AV" will now be
kerned together automatically in most decent fonts.
- On Windows, non-ASCII text works (tested with Cyrillic). Localized font
face names (such as "italic" translated into a local language for Windows
fonts such as Arial) are no longer a problem.
2. Here is what SHOULD work now but is not yet tested because we don't speak
these languages. This is where we need your help:
- Right-To-Left text (Hebrew, Arabic) and BIDI (bidirectional mixed text)
seems to work but I'm not sure.
- Contextual letterforms that depend on the position in a word and
script-specific ligatures (Devanagari) should work.
- Chinese and Japanese need testing, especially for how good vertical text
works (it is enabled by a button in the Text and Font dialog).
3. And finally the things that don't work (yet):
- Symbol fonts seem to have problems, at least the symbol.ttf from Windows.
Any help or insights is appreciated.
- Fuzzy font matching that worked in 0.38 is not reenabled yet. (No warnings
on font substitutions, etc.) Only Italic and Bold faces within a family work
so far. This is being worked on.
So, grab the latest CVS and play with text as much as you can. We're
interested to hear any reports, positive as well as negative. Thanks!

When compiling inkscape 0.38.1 in macosx I get this error:
