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.

If you are looking for inkscape tutorials, i am building up a list of
ones that i find at http://inkscapetutorials.wordpress.com .
i have posted around 28 so far, but there are heaps more that i have
in the pipeline, but not pubished yet. (i dont want to swamp the
also, i try to keep track of the tutorials that have been translated
into other languages and provide links to the translated tutorials...
so if you find a tutorial and it appears that i have not posted it or
if you find a translation of an exisiting tutorial send me an email...
Anyone know how I can keep the process from stopping when it's only about 20% done?? I have a PowerBook G4 with a 512MB RAM card (original equipment).
I tried upgrading the RAM to 1GB but that didn't work any better.? I want to eventually translate my Inkscape svg file into jpeg format so I can get the thing printed at imagestation.com.

in the past I designed a lot of civic arms using Freehand 9 and MX, and
became quite friendly with it, though I always had to run it in VMware.
I was long since then on the search for a replacement, and years ago
stumbled upon sodipodi and now inkscape.
It fulfills almost all my needs, and far exceeds (in terms of usability
w/ keystrokes, cloning/mirroring etc.) the possibilities I came to use
One thing though remains, which I'm at a loss in making them work as I
want them to.
a) If I have a path, which is made up of various nodes (as happens with
every shape, say a circle and a square, merged into a
+ c + d
shape. This later is comprised of five nodes (a..e). But if I want to
place them on predefined positions, there's no possibility to do so,
e.g. having Node e on (300, 0).
I can either use the mouse to drag it near this point (but will never
manage to do it exactly), or use the XML editor, in which I don't see
the point (b/c it's such a royal pain searching through it and finding
finally this point. obviously this should then be done for all five points)
I can also use the grid and snap to grid functions, but I don't want to
be limited to only integer numbers, sometimes I want a point to be at
0.155,10.245 (or something else),
So: is there a possibility to enter the coordinates one drags the node
with the mouse (this would certainly also be cool for the handles of nodes)
I am testing a Wacom Graphire 4 tablet in my Mac (PPC) and
appearently I can't use its pressure sensitivity in GIMP. Has anyone
managed to use a graphics tablet in GIMP, under Mac OS X? Is X11 for
Mac compatible with this feature? I also tryied in Inkscape, but it
only behaves like a mouse, pointing and clicking, with no pressure
signs... Anyone can help, please?
We are looking for someone to teach a half-day course in using Inkscape
for SVGOpen 2007. SVGOpen is an annual SVG conference, and this year,
it is being held in Tokyo. The class would be the afternoon of
September 4, 2007.
The teacher should be very familiar with Inkscape, and would ideally
have some knowledge about the SVG format. This is not intended to be a
design course, but it would be nice if the teacher has a good design
sense, or even training in design. If the teacher is comfortable with
other design tools, such as Illustrator, that might help in answering
student questions. The teacher should speak adequate English, but a
Japanese translator may be available.
The class should give a broad overview of the functionality of Inkscape.
Beyond that, the subject matter is left to the discretion of the teacher.
The teacher would receive a free pass to the whole conference. It would
be a good reference on a resume, and an interesting experience.
If you are interested, please contact me at inkscape@...2298...
Thanks very much!
I'm attempting to use the Effects on Mac (PowerBook G4, 10.4.10) which utilise
some Python libraries what I've understood. I've followed the instructions
found at :
installed PyXML and numpy and even changed the Python version to 2.4
thinking that PyXML functions with that, but still no go.
The instructions found in the above link states that on OS X 10.3 the file
path to the site-packages folder is different than on 10.4 which in my case
isn't so. The Python packages which I have (2.4 and 2.5) are separated
according by framework:
not like this:
Can the problem be laying here which in that case what is there to be done?
Nyx, thanks for pointing out your Japanese user site - I'm
forwarding it to the user list for anyone who is interested.

Hello. I am a novice user of Inkscape in Japan whose
handle is Nyx.
Inkscape is great, but I found that there were few Japanese
information source about Inkscape. So I decided to start a
site for myself. Currently it has only personally written
manual and FAQ translation. Hopefully I can add some more
contents in future. The site address is:
I was not sure if it was appropriate to contact you about
it, but I thought it might interest you.
Thank you very much for providing powerful and attractive
tool. I hope my site will be some help to Japanese users.
