I have uploaded a new version of the book "A Guide to Inkscape".
The book has been updated for Inkscape 0.44. It covers all the new
features such as: Clipping & Masks, Layers Dialog, Style Indicator, and
Docked Color Palette. The version for Inkscape 0.43 is still available
for those who haven't upgraded.
As always, comment are welcome.
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.

Lately I gave blender a try and was really impressed by its GUI. Blender
is known to be hard for beginners, but I believe advanced users can be
really productive there. I especially like the three shorcuts:
They all work for an active object. Take the rotate operation - it is
faster than inkscape's:
1) double click the object
2) select the rotation handle
I wonder if it would be possible to create a blender-like, alternative
This is not a complain against inkscape's GUI - it is great and I can be
productive with it, but won't you agree blender's GUI would be faster
for advanced users?
I can't get Inkscape to use the preferred language on OS X -- the UI
always stay in English no matter what language is set the System
I'm using the latest versions of Inkscape (0.44.1) and OS X (10.4.7).
(The behavior was the same under 10.4.4.)
Any way to (re)solve this?

I've just installed 44.1 and discovered, to my great dismay, that on my system
(Windows XP SP2) it crashes every 5 minutes.
Unfortunately, I deleted my installation of 44.0, which used to work fine. Is
there any place from which I can download 44.0?

No, I am using GNU/Linux (Ubuntu) with a very lightweight WM (wmii) and
Gnome. For shure, browsing SVG-graphics with Nautilus is comfortable but
that depends on the desktop you have. In my opinion a good search
facility should be archieved through inkscape an /not/ by external
application or desktop-libraries.

I'm using Inkscape for many issues and over the years a large
quantity of SVG graphics has amassed themselves spread over
different folders. While I'm reusing many pieces I find myself in
a situation previewing folder after folder in the open-dialog.
This is very unsufficient because it steals time for real
artworking. I've tried 'inkview' but when I find the right
graphic I have to remind folder & filename and all that
sequential. Then I tried SOC project "clipart browser" , which
seems to be the best approach to find graphics. It works fine
with a local and OCAL repository and searches also for
svg-keywords. clipartbrowser shoud be a part of inkscape. I can
also imagine to integrate 'tagging'-functionality seen on social
bookmarks projects or OCAL's new cchost.

For those who print custom sized documents using Inkscape, I ran across
another app which seems to work very well printing BOTH banners AND
Check out Posteriza 1.1.1 (www.posteriza.com).
So far this app has printing everything I've drawn (if thats what you
can call my attempts to draw). I can enlarge to HUGE sizes.
Save your Inkscape document as either a bmp or png file (the two I've
tried to date). Open in Posteriza, make the size changes, and print
away (and yes, HPs can print banners - I've finally had success with
mine - I say this for my benefit. I was ready to throw the printer out
I sincerely hope that others can use this information. I've received so
much support as I attempt to print odd sized things, I want to repay in
any way that I can. Inkscape is very cool and fits absolutly perfectly
in my class where students just love it. Now that I can print their
work with no porblems (so far), the kids are almost too excited.
Again, thank you everyone!!!

When I print out the same text phrase in both Inkscape (0.44) and Scribus
(1.3.3), using the same pt. sizes and typestyle, they come out looking
different. The Inkscape printout is noticeably smaller than Scribus. Any
tips as to how I can remedy this situation?
