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 am currently comparing Illustrator and Inkscape for creation of SVG
documents for the web.
What I like about Illustrator is that it is possible to "Save a Copy..."
of a document and specify that all texts should be converted to outlines
*only for that copy*. So I can have all the texts editable in the
document, and only in the end they will be converted to outlines. Is a
similar workflow possible with Inkscape?
We are using Inkscape to edit SVGs generated by the Maperitive OpenStreetMap
renderer. Those files are very complex and Inscape is practially unuseable in
the latest stable version.
We found on http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Release_notes/0.49 that
there are performance improvements upcoming. So we installed the package from
the PPA 1:0.48+devel+10922+30~natty1. Build 10922 is the latest build in the
trunk branch as I see.
But using this version, there were no performance improvements notable.
Are those announce performance improvements already in trunk or do be have to
use some other branch?
How do I change the colour of an arrow head from black to (e.g.) red? I can change the line colour but it seems not to affect the color of the arrow head.
Any ideas are much appreciated !

I am using Inkscape 0.48 (on Mac OS X under X11) to create resources for a
video game. A feature I am making heavy use of is the ability to add custom
attributes to the XML elements within the SVG document-- I have defined a
bunch of attributes like polycode:density="" which are meaningless to
Inkscape but my game code knows how to interpret, and I add them to the
document using Inkscape's "xml editor" window. This works fine but I am
having a problem.
Some of my custom attributes contain very long blocks of multiline text,
specifically they contain scripts written in Lua. What I find is that
Inkscape allows me to put multi-line text into an xml attribute; and I can
save as many times as I want, and the multi-line text remains multi-line;
but when I *open* a svg document in Inkscape, at that time *all multi-line
xml attributes in the entire document get collapsed down to single lines*,
and the next time I save all of my xml attributes are single line. This is
extremely inconvenient, it confuses my source control and also it could
break my code at some point.
Why is Inkscape doing this, and how do I make it stop?
What I've tried so far: I tried setting an xml:space=preserve attribute on
the toplevel svg:svg element in the effected document, but this did not
help, it did things to the whitespace * between * elements and broke the
display in the XML Editor window, but it did not change Inkscape's behavior
wrt whitespace in attributes.
Previously, I had a problem where at the same point in time that Inkscape
is now eating my whitespace (document open), it was also stripping my
custom polycode: namespace prefixes. I eventually fixed this by adding a
xmlns:polycode="http://msm.runhello.com/local/svg/polycode0" attribute to
the top of each document containing polycode: attributes. (The URL listed
is not a valid URL, it's a 404.) Looking on the internet, I got the
impression that if I can get Inkscape to load a "DTD" for my polycode:
namespace, I can mark in the DTD that the attributes for which I do NOT
want whitespace eaten are "CDATA" and this is supposed to make Inkscape
leave those attributes alone. However, the document explaining
suggested xml parsers like Inkscape should assume any attribute they do not
recognize to be CDATA. Will creating a DTD solve my whitespace problems?
How do I get Inkscape to load the DTD? And are there any examples of
Inkscape-compatible DTDs of this sort out there, since I do not have
experience with DTDs?
