I am trying to take a piece of text, make a white copy to make a shadow
which I have slightly blurred with the Object Fill and Stroke tool, but
when I select one, hold down the shift key to have both selected, then
Group them, the white shadow loses it blur.
What am I missing? Thanks!

The input devices settings (for extended input, e.g. tablet) have
changed some time ago to a different format. Now, I can set the stylus
device to Screen to have it pressure sensitive as expected, and it is
also stored as this in the preferences.xml, but on reload if forgets
My stylus device is called Stylus0, the eraser Eraser0. Setting the
eraser to screen mode, in the preferences.xml I see something like
but no such entry for stylus or Stylus0 exists and is created...
I am using:
- opened a PDF form
- added some text but also my signature
- saved the changed form as SVG and exported as a new PDF
- sent the PDF to the responsible person (a Windows user)
but although she can see the signature on the screen, it doesn't print
(I presume she is using an Adobe viewer). I think she was able to get
around it by doing a print screen and saving to a doc file?
This could be a problem if it happens all the time . .

Manao ahoana, Hello, Bonjour,
I needed to draw a diagram of servers and therefore needed many arrows.
I found how to have arrows with:
- draw a line
- right click on it
- Fill & Stroke
- Stoke Style
- Star/Mid/End Markers
But the "Marker" is always black. I want it the color of the line I

I am relatively new to Inkscape, and am looking to use it for general
vector drawings, but in particular drawing diagrams (single line
electrical diagrams). As such, is there anything similar (sorry for the
comparison) to Visio's symbol templates, where one can store recurring
symbols and simply insert them (and create custom symbols to add as the
need arises)? Any ideas on how best to manage this in Inkscape (or
indeed any other recommendations?) would be greatly appreciated;
likewise if there are any single-line symbols available?
I am using Inkscape-0.47 on Zenwalk Snapshot which is a derivative of
Slackware. I have installed Ghostscript Standard Type 1 fonts installed in
/usr/share/fonts/Type1 directory. But these fonts are not visible in
Inkscape. How to make them available in Inkscape?
Thanks for your help.

Bazaar is a distributed version control system that offers many
features that are anti-bizarre. For a software development
project--particularly one that is physically dispersed and has
multiple levels of commit privileges such as most open source
projects--Bazaar offers substantial benefits. The
Canonical/Ubuntu/Kubuntu/?buntu crew has moved most revision control
to Bazaar...because bzr makes it easy for marginally-techies to
contribute. This site explains
The leaders of projects are not in cahoots about what system to use
for versioning, make-ing, etc. There is no FOSS governing body
dictating tool selection. And for every "user like me", there are many
users not like you that also have preferences.
"Scribus just to be difficult..." Well probably not "just" with the
intention of being difficult. It might have something to do with--make
is Unix-ish, while Scribus is cross platform. Many users of open
source software run on platforms other than ...N*X. Many M$ Office
users have abandoned Publisher in favor of Scribus.
Chin up, John. These technical details are part of the FOSS fun. 8^)
I didn't find anything on the Interwebs, so I resort to here:
I have a Inkscape document that has several texts in in and most of
them are properly (as text) output to PDF. But there are some that are
rasterised and I do not get it why this is so.
I have cleaned up the XML and even if I copy the XML style attribute
from a properly rendered text to a rasterised one it gets rasterised.
Thanks so much, Andi
