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?
I can't seem to use the fill tool in Inkscape (v0.48 on OS X). Trying to
fill a rectangle object with a 0.010 mm line width (stroke color: blue) with
no fill while sectioning off a chunk with a two-node straight line cutting
through the upper half. I tried filling the area, but it only filled it and
left a weird uneven margin on the end (

margin doesn't do anything. I also tried changing the line width to
something thicker, making it the same color as the straight line, but same
seems to have no effect. Checked for gaps, found none. I also tried
changing the threshold, but that just made it not fill anything at all.
What am I doing wrong?

Has anyone been successful with creating templates with inkscape in which you can automate the generation of PDFs?
- Datasource [XML] that contains a list of data items
- The Visual Representation (as an inkscape file)
- A script that would combine the two and produce a pdf based on the datasource specifications
I know I asked a similar question to this before, but I was wondering if anyone had success at automating this task.
I am trying to create one PNG image with a transparent gradient (from
gray to transparent). All is fine but when I save as .png the part which
should be transparent is actually white.
I did check the document preferences. The color is white and alpha is
set to 0.0. What I am doing wrong?
I want to write an exporter to another file format for inkscape.
Basicly I want to take only polygons, rectangles and circles from the
svg, perform some operation on them and save the result to my own xml
Now, I managed to write the inx file. But for how to write the python
script I just cannot find enough information.
Can someone point me to information or an example giving the necessary
information on how to do this?
I see that one can write so called "effect" extensions which are
available through the effects menu. But is it also possible to write an
extension that allows the creation of a new object type at a position
where the user clicks?
For example, an extension that allows me to click on a new button in the
tools menu. When I then click somewhere in the image, a script is run
which creates a predefined object at the clicked position.
I'm trying to open a .ai file without luck. It says "Failed to load
request file path-to-file-and-filename."
Any ideas? I saw that some folks have been using ai2svg.py, I d/l'd it
and I'm running it... it's been chugging away for about an hour with no
.svg file in site, (it's still running). I have a fairly decent machine
running it, Lenovo T410 w/ i5.
Is there meta info in the .ai file that would be of use? The .ai file
was probably made towards the beginning of the 2000's if that is helpful.
I'm in Ubuntu 10.04, I'm using the native Inkscape version in U10.04, 0.47
Any help is appreciated. BTW I'm in love with the The Book of Inkscape,
By Dmitry Kirsanov, I had to let a co-worker borrow it and I was sad to
do so! We're both beginning to learn about Inkscape for work. I'm
totally in love with this program. I got to sit down with my girl the
other day and walk her through editing an SVG.. I think I got her hooked to.
I guess I might be whining, but I don't want to bother with Illustrator,
what a hassle.
