I find it hard to create a collection of shapes that are different sizes,
yet have the same thickness of line. Currently I create shapes with the
tools on the left, such as a circle. when I am done creating a circle I find
that if I want to make it a little smaller (reduce diameter), the thickness
of the line is also reduced when the circle is modified by the provided
handles. Is there a UI feature I am missing that will allow me to change the
size and shape of a object, without changing it's line size?
thanks for fun app. I apprieciate any help!
I'm using Inkscape on a Windows XP with the locale set to hebrew (israel).
I've had no problems until now but I just downloaded a development snapshot
(the new gradient tool rock! and windows stay on top!) and now the entire
UI has switched to a right-to-left UI with bits and pieces of hebrew stuck
here and there.
I remember GTK was supposed to respect a language setting in the enviroment
variables - if you added LANG=en it would ignore the system setting on Gimp.
But this didn't work for Inkscape when I tried it.
So, is there any way to make inkscape ignore the windows set locale?
Is there a command to eliminate overlaps in paths (especially
calligraphy paths), i.e. to create a path that is just the outside of a
particular path? I can sort-of achieve this effect by drawing an
overlapping path and unioning the two, but I would like to be able to do
this without the extra 'helper' path.
(sorry, .sig file is on the other computer)
Just tried the new inkscape-0.45pre1.x86.package that is advertised on
www.inkscape.org. I am getting these errors when trying to launch:
[mimooh@...1459... ~]$ inkscape
inkscape: /lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_3.4' not found (required by inkscape)
inkscape: /usr/bin/../lib/libpng12.so.0: no version information available (required by inkscape)
The GCC_3.4 one seems to be fatal - inkscape won't launch. This is my
[root@...1459... ~]# rpm -qa | grep gcc
[root@...1459... ~]# rpm -ql libgcc
I would say I use a rather fresh distro (PLD Linux) and I just upgraded
libgcc package. What is the problem then?
First, I'm a new and very impressed user of Inkscape. I'm no drawing
application expert (far from it), but to me it seems that a lot of careful
and creative thinking has gone into designing the user interface, and the
result is very enabling.
An issue has arisen that I bet has been asked before; if so, my apologies (I
did search for it). My daughter and I are are using Inkscape to try drawing a
new set of icons for an open-source educational game (Tuxmath). These icons
contain a number of distinct objects (penguins, igloos) that can be
mixed-and-matched, and the individual ingredients can change (the penguin can
flap its wings, part of the igloo can melt, etc.) We're now to the stage
where we're trying to combine these ingredients into whole icons; however,
we're noticing that as we improve as artists we'd like to, for example, go
back and fix up our igloo a bit more---but then we find ourselves making the
same changes (or delete, copy, paste) in all the "derived" files that use the
igloo + other ingredients. I'd like to find out if there's a way that these
improvements can be propagated to all of our combined icons without having to
manually copy-and-paste. Basically, is there a way to embed an object as a
link? And then have future edits build from there?
Thanks for taking the time to read and answer this, and, most importantly, for
a terrific application!
i created a svg-graphic with inkscape 0.44 (see attachment).
I saved it as pdf with transparency.
I can view it perfectly with acrobat reader.
Than i included the file into a latex-document, which i compiled with pdf-latex.
When i reach the site of the resulting document, where the pdf normally shows, acrobat reader says: No resource found.
The figure is completly shown, only the text-surrounding boxes are missing...
