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.

Dear readers of this list,
I had a first look at Inkscape, and several questions occured to me on the
* Does Inkscape support palettes? Where can I "store" and save colours for
* Is the CMYK colour picker working in version 0.41? Here I can only use RGB.
* How can I print the tutorials on A4 paper? The tutorials look very nice, but
printing them the usual way does not work, and I dont like reading on screen.
* The pointer position in the lower left corner - how can I have it using the
same unit as used for the document (millimeters or point or other choices)?
* What is "Inkscape SVG" as opposed to "Plain SVG" when saving a document?
Thank you for helpful hints in advance

Objects seem to align to the grid 3 ways: to the center line of the
object's outline, to the outer edge of the outline, or to the inner edge
of the outline. This leaves some wiggle space which can throw off the
manual aligning of several objects. Is there any way to turn off 2 of the
3 and get rid of the wiggle space?
I tried downloading and installing the rpm today but
still no go.
I am reading where some people are running .42 but I
can't get anything to happen. .41 still installs and

There was a post a while back (in May) about about inkscape and exports to
EPS for use with latex+psfrag. A response said that this was fixed in the
1) Exactly what version is this fixed in? In gentoo (unmasked version) I
am running .41-r1.
2) Could someone explain a little more about the kerning and how it relates
to the drawings? Specifically, what do I need to do (and what should I not
do) to get my drawings usable with psfrag.
In Inkscape, if you select more then one object and do
a rotation transform, it rotates both objects as if
they were one. For instance, if you have a horizontal
line of squares and rotate them 90 degrees clockwise
through the transform dialogue, you get a verticle
line of squares.
However, I want Inkscape to rotate some objects like
it does with the "rotate 90 degrees" button. It is
tiresome to select one object after another and rotate
it 45 degrees or some other number that isn't a
multiple of 90. Is there some way to do this without
brute force? if not, I think it should definately go
on the to-do list, considering that it's useful and
Inkscape almost already does it.

Is there some way to turn off the "smooth" or "symmetrical" (I am thinking it is smooth),
default which appears to occur when dragging a second handle out from a bezier shape
node? It is exasperating. I just get a curve positioned the way I want, and need to do
something on an adjacent curve, but when I drag out a handle..."sproinnnggggg" there goes
my carefully positioned first curve, then I have to unlock the handles with "make
corner", reposition my first curve (again), and then move on to the second curve.
Also, a few times I have mistakenly made a handle where I didn't want one. Is there a
way to "return" the handle to the node? I have just positioned it back as close to the
node as possible, but it isn't quite the same and then if I want to move the node, I keep
grabbing the handle by mistake.
Why do things slow down so much when I zoom in on a curve? Up close, it seems to take
forever to drag a node to a new position (and my designs aren't all that complex). A
couple of times, I have moved something, but for some reason, the mouse doesn't "let go"
of the node right a way when I release the mouse button. The next thing I know, the node
I just so carefully moved is "sproiiinnngggg" way over where my mouse now is. (I am
running on a PIII 800 with 380-something meg of ram, under Slackware Linux 10.1)
