I'm wondering how can I install Inkscape in English on
a Spanish Windows version. Any ideas?

In great anticipation of the upcoming 0.43 release of Inkscape I have
just released an updated version of my book:
The updated book adds coverage of:
3. Pressure and tilt using a tablet
Coverage has been updated for all Interface and Usability improvements.
File exports are covered in greater detail with examples given for each
type of export. And a new tutorial has been added showing how to draw a
can of Split Pea Soup. Quite a few corrections, both
factual and grammatical, have been made.
The new book replaces the old book... be careful to refresh the pages
or you may end up seeing the old pages from your cache. It you,for some
reason, wish to stick with 0.42, the previous version of the book is
Comments and corrections are as usual always appreciated.

Great you made the RFE Adam! It looks right to me. But in your example
image the repaint starts in one node point and ends in another node
point, and it should not work like that but as you say in the text;
start and end can be at any point of the line. But maybe that is clear
without changing the example image?
I don't know if we need to clearify how the pencil should behave when
the start point is on the line but the end point ain't. In illustrator
all parts of the line after the start point is removed and replaced by
the new line you just drew. Do you follow what I mean?
I'm trying to recreate a logo (http://users.telenet.be/sacn/logo.png) in
vector format. I used the tracing tool for the center image, but for the
circle and the surrounding text I started from scratch. But I can't get the
text part right.
This is more or less what I did:
- Add an (invisible) circle as the baseline for the top text.
- Use the "Put on path" tool.
- Rotate the circle to the correct angle.
So far no problem. But when I repeat this for the bottom part of the text
(and a copy of the circle), the direction of the text is shown in the wrong
direction (clockwise like the text on top). I can get the orientation right
by flipping the circle horizontally, but now the text is inside the circle.
Is there a way to force the text outside of the circle. (Another possibility
would be to have the upper text also inside the circle, but I think this is
exactly the same problem.)
I just wanted to offer my thanks to those doing the work on Inkscape
I'd read about it some time ago, and thought it would make a good
replacement for some other Drawing apps.
But since using Inkscape, it's become clear to me what a nicely-
thought out piece of work it is, whose simple interface belies the
power under the hood.
My goal is to use Open Source ware wherever possible, and I see no
problem making the changeover to Inkscape for my vector drawing
Thank you for the sweat and late nights!
We've turned off logging on the Jabber channel, at Ishmal's request. He
felt it would give a better sense of privacy for discussions if there
were no logs. The logs up until Oct 30 will be kept.
We have also added a robots.txt file to prevent google searching/caching
of the old logs.
The second prerelease of Inkscape 0.43 has been released. It now
includes the whiteboard files and other fixes. Getting closer, does it
still work for you?
I was working on a bit of type and needed to lock part of it, and did
so using the "Object Properties" window.
However, when I needed to unlock that object, I couldn't!
Is there a trick to unlocking objects?
