Jon, thanks I'm off there now.
Hello all, please forgive the intrusion ...
If anyone wants to manage TTF fonts under Linux, then FontyPython should do
the trick. I just finished and released version 0.2.0 which is my second
I have attached a screeny so you can get a quick idea of what it's all about.
If anyone wants to help me, we could get it working with other font types too.
I know nothing at all about Type 1 and company.
I hope there are no showstopping bugs, enjoy.
I don't know if I'm alone in this, but the mask/clip options in vers x.x are
very hard to use. The results are hard to predict. Colours of objects will
change (depending on fore/back ground order etc).
Also, the difference between clip and mask is not clear.
I come from a (distant) background in Macromedia Freehand and in that world
they had a concept called "Paste Inside".
1. Now that made perfect sense and was perfectly predictable. One did not have
to setup a bunch of "tests" on the side.
2. You could select items within the mask, and easily edit/move them.
In Inkscape 0.44, I get the feeling that those items are new and experimental,
perhaps they will get a better user interface - I'm not sure where the coders
are at now, I know they move really fast on a thousand fronts.
Anyway, any pointers?
When I import an eps file I lose all the text in the eps file. Instead
a text is added which says "PSfrag replacements". I'm using version
0.44.1. I've uploaded the problem eps file into
Could you please help me out with this?
