I'm trying to draw something for my webcomic and have come across a
problem. I have several images of flags and I want to just take a
section of them.
For example, I would like to be able to draw a shape (a circle) on top
of the flag, then remove all of the flag that sticks outside of the
shape so I'm left with just a circular section of the flag. Is there
any way to do this?
Thank you for your time,
I have a problem with scaling fonts (I am using Inkscape .45 on Ubunty
1) Imagine you write some text in fontsize 32.
2) Then you scale the text object without keeping the aspect ration the
same. For example you make it smaller
3) Then you select the text object. You will see that the size is
smaller, it might be, say 30.2.
4) Then you decide that the text object should be 32. Then you select
the text icon on the left and select 32.
5) NOW THE PROBLEM HAPPENS: Inkscape says that the text is 32, but it
still keeps the wrong aspect ratio.
Of course, you might wonder why this is a problem. What happens is that
I need to rescale multiple objects (in step 2, not just text objects)
and then afterwards select all text objects and set them to the intended
Inkscape seems to keep track of the transformation scale matrix and the
aspect ratio. I am sure that has a purpose. But what if I want to say
that a text object which has been scaled and transformed multiple time
should have a particular font size. That seems impossible right now.
Can anybody help me how I could resolve this problem?
Thanks for your help!

I found this old message from Hadmut and I need to reproduce his
effect. I can't blur the object. I can't find any "blur" command in
my italian version. Can you explain me in a more detailed way ?

Thanks to the repeated efforts of John Faith, the latest version of
Inkscape now seems to run on OS X 10.3 aka. Panther. Many Panther
users reported some bugs and were disappointed that the new 0.45
release left them behind. These cruel days are hopefully over! A
build is available in Inkscape's development builds repository:
This build is made from a recent SVN snapshot so it has more features
(and potentially more bugs also ;) ) than the 0.45 release. The
application is also larger than usual (>100Mb) because it is not
stripped from debugging symbols.
Currently John is still struggling to complete a compile from a fresh
start. Once this is sorted out and once this first build gets some
testing, we'll provide a more official build (maybe a 0.45.2 if this
is ever planned to happen).
Thank you for your patience and thanks again to John who made this
Is there a function in Inkscape equivalent to the "live trace" in the
latest version of Illustrator?
Able Indexing and Typesetting
Precision typesetting (tm) at reasonable cost.
I was wondering how would I go about using the stable
and current development version of inkscape on Windows

I'm trying to write some text and the apply button seems to be off.
Furthermore I cannot seem to select the particular font I want. The font
is "Myriad Pro Semi Bold Condenesed Italic", in the dialog I only see
Myriad Pro, with the various variations (that's on my Ubuntu Feisty
installation). On my windows installation I don't see that font at all.
Another point is that the font is an OTF file.
So, what gives?
