I've got this issue: in the pull down font menu, I can't pick any fonts. The
fonts are highlighted, but they're not applied and the pull down menu is not
closed, jus as if I've not clicked. Please help.

Apologies if the issue is already known, but I haven't found anything
by making a Google search.
When I recently switched to Inkscape 0.46, I discovered that objects
are no longer snapped to the grid when pasted from the clipboard. It
used to work before and I was finding that quite handy. In the "Snap"
tab of the Document Properties dialog box I ticked the "Enable
snapping" and "Nodes" options.
The release notes for 0.46 say that grids have undergone big changes.
Did that behaviour get lost during the refactoring? Is that a new
option that I missed?
Many thanks for this wonderful software,
on my Gentoo system, the inkscape ebuild requires the existence of
skencil in case of postscript support.
Unfortunately, I cannot build skencil anymore after switching to

The alt key doesn't seem to be usable on XQuartz.
I am trying to alt+click to select an object below a current one.
Unfortunately that doesn't seem to work, is there any way to overcome this?

Is anyone working on something like this, or has it been considered
Adding a visual tree control to Inkscape which displays the following: your
layers, groups, and vector shapes ... with names, thumbnails, blending, and
toggles object/group/layer locked/visible states, as well as drag groups
(1,2,3,4,none ect). This tree control would also have a setting to define
the thumbnail size, and would allow for two way object selecting (i.e.
select the obejcts in the tree, and they are selected in the drawing/select
them in the drawing and they show as bold selected in the tree).
A mock up is here:
This would be useful in finding hidden/locked objects, or objects which are
obscured below fully opaque objects, and also allow you to drag the object
in to treee to relayer/regroup objects.
I know Inkscape has an xml editor, but this idea is so much than that that.
What do you guys think?
I need to open a .ps file. I've installed pstoedit onto my computer. I see
from the readme file that I also need to install ghostscript, but each time
I try to do this a pop-up window appears telling me I need to install it
using win-zip and that this will cost me money. I'm confused. Is ghostscript
not open source as well, or am I just clicking on the wrong download?
