first off all I have to say that I'M NOT A WINDOWS USER.
After, my boss, that is a windows user, would like to use inkscape. We have
tried to install it and basically we didn't have any problem. The question is
that we would like to know which dependencies needs inkscape to run in
windows, because we cannot use any import feature. So, we cannot open any ps,
eps, etc file.
We have tried to install python and perl, (without any success, or the import
feature doesn't work four us), but I have to say that I don't know very much
the windows platform (I'm very happy with the apt-get ;-)
So, please, could you tell me which software is necessary/recommend to run a
full inkscape in the Win platform? Somethink like to build it: x, y, z: To
run it, xa, yb, etc.

Can anyone out there help please? I've just upgraded from .42.2 to .43 and now all the menu and status bar fonts are too small to read. I'm running on Windows XP. I can't find any settings in the program to change. I've read the posting about changing gtk-font-name="verdana" etc. Although this just change some displays, it doesn't change the top menu line, or the status line at the bottom of the window.
Version 42.2 was displaying at a size that was quite readable.
I have complied an SVG library of crime scene symbols (all public domain).
They are all in the margin around a canvas making it a single svg document.
This makes crime scene drawing very quick and simple. Its sort of a
computerized template that law enforcement can easily relate to. The
drawback is that the file is large (approx. 4.5 mb). I would like to upload
it and get some feedback. Any law enforcement feedback would be even better.
If there are any suggestions on how to get this posted please let me know.
1. Wouldn't it be more comfortable for us user to set up a message board
on inkscape.org instead of a nerdy mailing list that fills up mailboxes
with unwanted discussions?
2. I have been playing around with the Windows version. It's nice, but
I'd like to see some features and changes:
- When I have the document window opened in fullscreen, then open a
dialogue window or similar and work on the document again, the dialogue
windows disappear behind it. I've seen this behaviour on The GIMP as
well and it's damn annoying. Would it be difficult for a coder to change
it so the dialogue boxes and menus stay on top?
- I mainly use Expression 3 for vector and really like that there is a
layer window, so the user can easily choose and rearrange the objects. I
haven't found out if Inkscape has this function as well, I have only
seen that drop down menu at the bottom which is quite poor compared to
Expression/Illustrator and other programs... is there an option to
activate a box listing all the layers or is it planned to code something
I've created my first extention for inkscape. Though it needs some work we use
it allready and it's is quite usefull.
Its called "Publish Zip" and resides in the filters menu. It does the
- it copies all linked images to the current dir en modifies all links to be
- it creates a zip containing the document and the linked images.
The zip can be mailed and opened by someone else with all images correctly
You can find it here:
- Document has to be saved first
- to create a correct svg-document in the zipfile
pubzip has to be run, then the document has to be saved,
then pubzip has to be run again.
- it fails with an ugly error when document is never
- only tested on Linux/Debian PPC

I am a fairly new user of Inkscape and was wondering
how I can create a square that has rounded corners on
the top, but streight corners on the bottom?
So far, I've noticed there are only 3 nodes which I
can use to modify my square. One of which is used to
round the corners- but it does all 4. Is there a way I
can only select 2 of the 4 corners to round?
Thanks- I hope this makes sense.
