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.

I am pleased to announce that the 2nd edition of my book "Inkscape:
Guide to a Vector Drawing Program" is available at:
A PDF version can be obtained at:
(The book has actually been available for the past month but it came out
just as I was leaving for vacation.)
The 2nd edition covers all the new features of Inkscape version 0.46
including SVG filters, "Live Path Effects", the 3D Box Tool, and the
Loïc Guégant of Cévennes Libres has done an amazing job of translating
the entire book into French. It is available at:
A partial Spanish translation by Ocetalo is also available and an
Italian translation has been started but is not yet available.
I would like to thank all the people who have sent me comments and
corrections to the previous versions of the book, and to thank Jon Cruz
and and Loïc for corrections to the current version. Thanks also to Loïc
and Ocetalo for their translation work and to everyone who has
contributed to making Inkscape such a great program!
>From console it is possible to export selected elements by ID. It is
great, but i don't like to remember all the ID and write/maintain a
bash script for my projects.
I prepare a work around:
1) prepare a layer with all export areas
2) generate by xslt a bash script that export all object in my selected layer.
Here is the xslt template:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:output method="text" indent="yes" encoding="utf-8" />
<xsl:variable name="toExport" select="//svg:g[@id='toExport']/svg:rect" />
<xsl:variable name="filename" select="'project.svg'" />
<xsl:text>inkscape -z </xsl:text>
<xsl:text> -i </xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="@id"/>
<xsl:text> -e export/</xsl:text><xsl:value-of
<xsl:text> -f </xsl:text><xsl:value-of select="$filename"/>
It is possible to add something like this to the console options??
export by xpath???
It can work in this way:
inkscape -X '//svg:g[@id='toExport']/svg:rect'
"export all the object that fit the xpath //svg:g[@id='toExport']/svg:rect"
Okay, I'm getting really cheesed with the grids on Inkscape. Why does the
grid spacing adjust when I zoom? And, why is it not at least proportional
to the page/objects I'm working on? I cold live with it if it adjusted in
constant multiples, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Thanks for the help,
Is there a way to specify mm to px conversion when exporting svg using
inkscape --export-png? The --export-dpi doesn't help because it's
overwritten by --export-width.
What I want is have one svg - map. The image will be exported for
different zoom levels, so the pixel size of exported image will vary.
But pixel width of roads should remain the same. In batik, I can
specify road width in mm and then set different different mm to px
ratio for each zoom level to get the same road width at all zoom
levels. But I can't find such option in inkscape.
Is there some way or workaround how to do this in inkscape?
