I'm a newbie using inkscape to annotate a floor plan I've created with
I'm having a few little problems when I try to do this. The first problem
the size of the objects in my floor plan change when I change the page
For example, if I generate a square intended to print as 1" on a side, it
is the correct size when I open the svg file with inkscape. However, after
a page format (eg: US Letter), the size of the square changes significantly.
not sure if this is newbie ignorance or a bug in cairo or inkscape. Below
some C code that generates an svg file with a 1" square as an example.
How can I make objects print at their original size without simply manually
rescaling everything after setting the page format?
// compile like this:
// g++ -Wall -c -g `pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0` -o cairosvg.o
// g++ -g -o cairosvg cairosvg.o `pkg-config --libs gtk+-2.0`
int main(int argc, char *argv)
surface = cairo_svg_surface_create("foo.svg",
cr = cairo_create (surface);
cairo_move_to(cr, 10, 10);
cairo_line_to(cr, 10, 82);
cairo_line_to(cr, 82, 82);
cairo_line_to(cr, 82, 10);
cairo_set_line_width (cr, 0.1);

I am a new list member (although long-time Inkscape user), please accept
my apologies if this question has been asked and answered in some place
that I can't find or am unaware off.
All the fonts I can see listed in my Inkscape installation are TTF.
I have Type 1 fonts on my system and would like to use them in Inkscape,
e.g. for embedding.
I've read that there are problems with this on Windows and OSX, is this
true for Linux also?
If not, can anyone suggest a method I can follow?
I'm no stranger to the command line and I've previously learnt more
about Debian/Ubuntu font management that I ever wanted to ;-)
Is it possible to use illustrator brushes in Inkscape?
And if so how would you do it.

In Gimp one can "flatten" a document to put all layers and all pieces
into one object. Once this is done one can crop to a segment of the
object and if needed enlarge it to a new size. I need those steps or
equivalent to create a multi page (and more readable) version of the
help document "keys.svg. "
What are the Inkscape analogs of flatten and crop?

Precision typesetting (tm) at reasonable cost.
I would like to ask about inkscape gradient fill option.
When I use gradients I can easily recognise tone steps in the gradient
..especially when I am using few gredient filled objects with different
What might be the reason ? I using Debian , Xorg 24 bit Color Depth.
When I draw the same picture under windows with AI or Photoshop the
gradients are more smooth.

I would like to know if it is possible to export/save Inkscape
files in a color depth of 16-bit/channel? I would like to edit
a bitmap in 16-bit, by drawing "over" it with the Inkscape tools,
and then exporting it as a 16-bit bitmap (maybe PNG, if the
16-bit are kept).
