Anyone know how I could layout/hack a single Inkscape SVG file so that I
can get a multi-page PDF out the other end?
Inkscape -> layout tricks (maybe layers?) -> some process (maybe command
line) -> PDF file with pages.
At the moment I am laying-out logos and designs on a single 'page' which
can be as tall as 9000 pixels.
Is there a way to 'chop' a single PDF page like that into smaller chunks?
Inkscape 0.48.2 r9819
running on Kubuntu 11.10
ctrl-shift-f, right-click fill&stroke, tool bar icon, (menu)object fill&stroke
same (lack of) behavior with align and distribute
I've reinstalled Inkscape and installed inkscape-trunk. Nothing.
I've been tasked by the SVG Working group to summarize scaling issues
in SVG. What I mean by scaling issues, is things that one perhaps
doesn't want scaled when zooming in or out on a drawing. An example
would be a non-scaling line width for technical drawings (this has
already been accepted for inclusion into SVG 2.0).
Inkscape doesn't have any zoom independent features (except for outline
mode) but it does include options for when objects are scaled or moved:
1. Scaling stroke width when scaling an object.
2. Scaling rectangle corners with scaling rectangles.
3. Scaling/moving gradients when objects with gradients are moved.
4. Scaling/moving patterns when objects with patters are moved.
These would be candidates for non-scaling while zooming. Are there any
other cases where non-scaling would while zooming would be of interest?
I am looking to create a presentation using an(y) inkscape plugin, so far
I have tried Jessyink and just found Sozi. What I am looking for in
particular is to be able to create a /flashing/ effect on appearance, so
that when the object first appears, it should flash X times in Y seconds
after which it just stays. This is to draw attention to the newly
appeared object on a large image.
How does one create such a flashing effect on appearance, can this be
done with any of the plugins mentioned or others, or maybe it can be
directly done in inkscape?
is there a way to limit, or set, the size a image imports into inkscape
(both 0.48 & 0.47)?
if a image is created in a graphics program at 300dpi and a size of 6" X 6"
it seems to import into inkscape around the 22" X 22" size
is there a way to import at the 6" X 6" is was saved as?
of course the size will change but is there a way to import at the size it
was saved at or set a size to import to
I was wondering if someone could help. Im running Ubuntu 11.10 64bit
and Inkscape 0.48.2 r9819 (Jul 11 2011).
When I open inkscape and try to open the layers dialog, either using the
keyboard shortcut (Shift + Ctrl + L) or going to the menu and clicking
Layer -> Layers inkscape immediately closes. Running inkscape from the
terminal gives the following error:
inkscape: symbol lookup error: inkscape: undefined symbol:
Could anyone point me in the right direction to solve this please?
I like what I see in JessyInk. What I would like to do is attach a
short sound tag to each level. I would like something that would play
and then exit. I could go to an html page and have it exit after a
certain period of seconds but that seems kind of kludgy.
I did google on audio and Inkscape but the link I found was no longer

We at FLOSS Manuals would like to use Inkscape to automatically create
PDF images for use as book covers by manipulating a template SVG file.
The question is if Inkscape has the needed features and if we know how
to use them.
Here's an example of what a final book cover would ideally look like:
The ideal work flow would include an artist downloading an initial
template made by a programmer who understands how Inkscape handles
layers, flowed text etc. in the SVG level. The artist could modify the
template in Inkscape and add it to a template collection. When a book is
published, the user would choose a template from the collection and a
script would fill in the book name, author, book logo and convert the
SVG to PDF. In addition, the script would need to modify the width of
the spine (the middle part in the example image) based on the number of
pages in the book.
Has anyone done anything like this before? Would it be feasible? One
specific question would be if it's possible to somehow scale the font
size of the book name to meet the specified page width.
I had an initial discussion on the #inkscape IRC channel and got the
following link as an example of simple search-and-replace:
One issue would seem to be the inclusion of nested SVG images within the
SVG document, but this could be worked around by including images as
PNGs exported with appropriate DPI:
Could someone on this list perhaps help us by creating a simple template
which a search-and-replace process could then customise by substituting
the book info texts, image filenames and the spine width?
