I want to learn to use Inkscape in conjunction with Scribus to put out a newsletter. I want to create a box to go around a photograph and then import it into Scribus. In Inkscape, I click on the rectangle tool and drag as instructed, and nothing seems to happen. Then I scroll the window, and find that I've drawn a box below the desktop or canvas or whatever it's called. How can I cause the program to draw the box where I click and drag? I uninstalled the program and downloaded and installed it again, but the same thing happens in the second installation.
As 2008 comes to a close I wanted to wish a happy holiday season to all
and to wish everyone a very happy, healthy, safe, and prosperous new
year! A big "THANK YOU!" goes out to to all contributors... whether
developers, translators, testers, users, or even just advocates or
constructive critics, Inkscape would not be where it is today without
everything that you all have given. Thanks again and I can't wait to see
what 2009 has in store for us all!
The other day I grabbed the latest code from the trunk and built Inkscape
and installed it. The JavaFX exporter was there but the resulting syntax
isn't valid JavaFX 1.0 syntax. It looks to be from some point in the RC

1.0 compatible exporter will be available?
I'm new to inkscape and have used CorelDRAW a bit. One feature I really
like is the ability to snap to edges of paths (as well as midpoints and
whatnot). Is there something like this in Inkscape?
Original gears made in Inkscape with the gear effect, then the .svg's are imported into Blender, extruded and animated.
First attempt, 2 gears:
Second attempt, 5 gears (1 annulus gear, three planetary gears, and a sun gear). Had a heckuva time figuring out the rotation for the central gear. Run the vid twice. For some reason, the first time it runs way too fast.
I am new in this mailing list and I want some help on writing a little
script that I despereted need. I have a huge SVG file. Its resolution
is 20000+ by 38000+ and I need to slice it in little PNG peaces with
180x150 pixels. I wrote an batch file (I am a Windows user) that
automate this but since it calls the inkscape in the command line to
every peace that need to be exported it is very, very, very slow. Some
one can guide me in writing a script that could do this in a little
less time? I am currently using the version 0.46 of Inkscape in a
