How do I configure Inkscape for Windows to see the Type1 fonts I have
installed? The GIMP sees them fine (which also uses freetype), as
does OpenOffice.org. The font names and corresponding pfb file names
even show up in my .fonts.cache-1 file but I still can't see them in
Inkscape. Thanks for any answers.

Is anyone able to get nice results exporting to PS or EPS from inkscape?
I am using inkscape as a preview and converter in LyX, but I get the
same results using the command line or exportin from the GUI. This
seems to be a new problem now that I am using inkscape on Linux, when I
was using inkscape on Win32, the EPS output looked nice as far as I can
I am using the text-to-path and bounding box options. The output seems
to be monochrome instead of grayscale, so there are jaggies everywhere,
and the diagram exceeds the size of the page. I just compiled the
snapshot with the same results.
PNG previews look great. That is what puzzles me.
Is this a problem with rendering the alpha channel into the EPS which
doesn't support alpha?

Just to give some visibility into some of the work bubbling away these
Cairo renderer: Bulia has taken point on investigation of conversion to
Cairo. Some tough problems have been uncovered but we're gaining a
clearer picture of what needs done. Presently this looks like it will
require an all at once brute force approach, rather than incremental
refactoring. If so, we'll need to reach a decision on how to
undertake that while minimizing disruption to SVN HEAD users.
Build system: There is definitely a concensus that our current build
system sucks. Options include CMAKE, Bob's buildtool, or just a
cleaned up automake. We really need to have interested parties mind
meld and find a single solution.
Version control system: Mental has been experimenting with git and
trying to get it to operate with svn. This study is still very early
on, but if it works out well, one day we may begin encouraging
developers to use git.
Bug tracking: I have been experimenting with use of Mantis with the
goal of replacing our SF bug tracker. It looks good, but the
principle issue is how to migrate the bugs and their history from SF
to Mantis. I'm also interested in seeing if it can be combined well
with Drupal, maybe along with Pootle. Any drupalheads out there?
Manual: We've got a good unofficial non-free manual/book and several
[semi-]official incomplete free manuals. There is discussion about if
efforts can be combined to produce a good official free manual.
Anyway, I've probably missed something, but I think that covers the
pending changes that are percolating. Most of these would benefit from
discussion, so we can make sure there is a rough concensus favoring the
change - so if you have concerns about any of these changes, now's a
good chance to bring 'em up.
Can someone on this list help me get started with Inkscape. I have release
0.43. I really like the program's drawing functionalities; however, so far I
have not been able to figure out how to create and use .svg files (which I
understand is the program's main file type). I draw cartoons and, no matter
how good the program is, it is of no use to me if I cannot figure out how to
share the stuff I create and post to websites, etc.
So far I have figured how to create a basic .svg file and also I've manage
to import a .bmp into MS Powerpoint. I created the .bmp by 'exporting to
.bmp'. But I cannot just 'copy and paste' images that I create into other
programs. Why is this? Thank you.

I created an SVG file in Inkscape and it looks as I would expect it to,
regardless of scale. I export it to PNG so that I can then convert it to
ICO using The GIMP. The problem is that the exported PNG file is very
pixelated and doesn't look near as good as the SVG file.
I'm new to Inkscape so I'm probably just not exporting it correctly. Can
anyone offer some advise for making this work?
Thanks, in advance, for your help.
Because of Inkscape, I started drawing an online comic. I'm now working
on a bigger project with this excellent program and I need to use some
of the advanced features in the effects menu.
I'm running Inkscape 0.45 on OS X 10.4.9. I've followed the instruction
on the Inkscape wiki
<http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/CompilingMacOsX#pyXML> on how
to install pyXML and it seems to have installed without any problems.
However, when I try to use the effects menu, I still get the error:
"|The inkex.py module requires PyXML. Please download the latest version
Is there a step that I'm missing?
Thank you for any help,

Apologies for sending this post out again - I'm hoping that someone who has
used the PSTricks export option might be able to help.
Can I export using PSTricks and maintain transparency? I don't know PSTricks
- but the generated code seems to use solid colours. Anyway to fix it?
