I need to know if Inkscape is able to produce registration marks from
several channels on a drawing.
What I mean is that I have a drawing with 3 channels (white black and
grey), each with their own dimensions, but overlapping, black on grey
on white. I need to print the grey image on a white paper, and then
the black image on top of that. The method I'm using is photo-
In photo emulsion printing, one coats a screen in a light-sensitive
emulsion, then exposes that screen to light with the image (in
opaque) in between the light source and the screen. The areas where
the light reaches the emulsion become hard, and the unexposed regions
wash out, creating a negative of the image, which is then printed
much like any other silkscreen print.
In my image, I need to place both channels on one screen, and then
register them on the page using registration marks in the corners.
Can inkscape do this?
I have followed Ben Powers' advice to change the interface aspect

Could this be included in the next releases of Inkscape's MacOS X distribution?
A preference setting might also be added to allow selecting between
this theme and the original one (in case some Mac users still prefer
Thanks in advance,
I have an interface suggestion/request: put the options such as fill
and stroke, font, font-size, etc in the main window, perhaps along
the bottom edge, or in a control pane
I use inkscape frequently to create diagrams for my studies,
particularily in biology. I feel I could do this much more quickly
and efficiently if I didn't have to switch back and forth between
here's a gimpy mockup i made real quick of one possible interface:
Can I convert curves (from free drawing or bitmap tracing) to segments
only? I didnt find anything relevant anywhere in the options. Searching
the archives failed because server errors. Can someone please give some
