Is there a way to set line spacing (line height) between lines of flowed
text? line-height in flowPara element doesn't work. And for text
justification / alignment text-align doesn't work too.
Thanks in advance
I'm currenty still using Inkscape 0.38, which was
included in my Linux distribution (Ubuntu), but
when I tried to compile v 0.40, I get error messages
at the end of ./configure, saying that some libs
(like XML) are missing. How can I fix this?
Actually, since 0.38 works, all of the required libs
should be installed, and I really would like to check
out the new features!

Yes, symbols come from Illustrator. Is there any way to correct this by
hand as I'd like to deeply test my file with gnome aisleriot before
releasing the file ?

here is a challenge for you guys, inkscape users, and a big trouble for
me. I created this deck of cards with Illustrator and Inkscape. The
final work has been made with Inkscape.
Inkscape renders the file perfectly but when I convert my file to EPS
(or PS or ai) or regular SVG, I obtain a messy rendering where all my
objects are misplaced and rotation as misinterpreted.
Do you have any idea ? I want to render that file with librsvg as this
file is for aisleriot.

Thanks for your help
First let me say what a great program inkscape is! I'm really happy to
Now on to the problem :-)
I compiled inkscape myself according to the instructions on the wiki
and it runs fine on OS X 10.3.7. I'm seeing two issues so far.
The first one is the most annoying and that is on the stroke menus,
when choosing style, the drop down list appears behind the box so you
can't see part of it. This is even more true in areas like
preferences where you cannot see the drop-down lists for things like
"Dialogs On Top" in the "Windows" Tab, at all b/c it is completely
concealed behind the window.
Did I screw up the compile or do something wrong here?
The second thing is that it seems that it refuses to save a file in .ai
I just save it in svg anyway but when experimenting I found that it
always gave an error message that file /Path/name/of/file could not be
Any ideas about either of those.? Patches or anything I could apply?
We are planning to do some redesign work on export bitmap palette and
export in common.
We'd like to know better how you use "export to bitmap" function, what
you're missing and what is your way to do export.
Basically, we see two ways of exporting:
1. Common "Export.." dialog, where file formats will be listed and
option dialog will raise upon choosing of of them.
2. Current "Export to bitmap" palette for those people who do export
to some bitmap file format all the time.
What we need is decent descriptions (use cases) of your workflow a
Another important thing is batch export. If you need batch exporting,
please provide us information, what is the best way to do batch export
in ian application like Inkscape according to your experience.
Thank you in advance.
I typed a page with the same font in 3 different sizes and
then deleted one of the titles. In re-doing it, I attempted
to move the box which comes down from the Text at the
top by clicking on the very top bar, and everything went
nuts and I lost everything. I presume I should read the
Help section; ...but did I do something really stupid?
