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?
Just a quick note to say that I need to batch convert the files so I can't
open inkscape and do things like trace the bitmap as shown on sites like

Subject: Shrinking the results of JPG to SVG conversion
I have a number of *.jpg files that I need to convert to svg. I am using
inkscape for the conversion. The problem is that the resulting svg is almost
5 times the size of the jpeg file. I have tried saving the file in
compressed plain svg but with no success. The file is still very large. Is
there anything I can do to shrink the file? I have run an open source
cleanup tool called cleanSVG downloadable from codeplex but that has not
I am open to using other JPG to SVG converters if inkscape is not the right
tool for this exercise. Natively creating SVG is not an option at this
Hi to all.
The branch BSpline is on.
It has the SpiroLive code refactored and the new code BSpline.
It has a new button near spiro, It work in pen and pencil mode.
For developers: I have a problem in code commented in bspline function.
Please anybody can fix? This code is for use continuing existing curves
in CUSP node.
I lost my terribol history of this proyect in bzr because i kill the
"bzr merge" command and it corrupt a file in the branch.
Feedback are welcome.
It is pretty cool to be announcing the 0.48.4 release of Inkscape. It's
a great bug fix release, which will hopefully tide people over until the
upcoming 0.49. There are a ton of bug fixes in this release including
one security fix, so it is recommended that everyone currently using
0.48.3 or older upgrade tho this release.
As per custom please avoid announcing this widely until platform
packagers have a chance to make binaries for people to download.

Oh, there are lots of people. By just looking at the bugs you can see
the wide variety of contributors:
Pick one (I'll do two) as always thinks go to ScislaC for herding and
~suv for ensuring that the bugs stay in good shape and land on the
Sorry for the lag in updates regarding the site. It has been a bit depressing and I also have been extremely busy. In all honesty we had a great design and some extremely motivated people who started the project of redoing the website. As with all open source projects time and experience got the best of us (myself included). The website design was completed long ago and it looks great. It can be seen here http://en.dev.inkscape.org/ . We started the migration portion and that's about as far as we got. We had one backend mostly complete when we realized that that dev was unable to complete the project without a rewrite and sadly lacked the time due to school commitments etc. Next we had a second developer start rewriting the code and unfortunately due to time constraints is unable to finish. That being said I am open to suggestions but we need a strict time line to at least complete the basic portion of the inkscape site.
That being said, We need help.
Here was the original projected todo:
Here is the more in depth description of each component:
That being said It would be nice to have the bare minimum in place for the site to allow submission of news, user profiles, admin privileges etc. At this point I am fairly open to consideration on what languages we might use. The project was started both times in django, however was never completed. I also may even be open for consideration of Content management systems that would allow us to build in these features fairly easily and allow the site to contain the same functionality and UI. If you have any talent in the web development world. Please get back to me and lets get the ball rolling! I know the holiday's can sometimes allow time to tinker but they also can be difficult times as well. Please feel free to make suggestions on how you're able to help us complete the website redesign. Really the part we need help with is the backend to the website.

First time posting on the Inkscape mailing lists, so I hope this is the right place for a small feature discussion.
I've been trying to move around .svg files created with Inkscape, only to find out that paths are by default absolute when linking external images. Manually editing the XML files or using the image property window works, sure, but it's tedious if you have a lot of images.
It seems to me that Inkscape *should* understand that I'm trying to link files from the exact same directory as the .svg file, and automatically use relative paths. I've found a wiki page about this and more (http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Image_links_manager), as well as somebody else with the same issues (https://answers.launchpad.net/inkscape/+question/77201) since 2009, and I wondered : what is the status on that feature?
Now, this is slightly above the "inkscape user" level, but if nobody's working on it and you don't mind me trying, I can submit a patch in a few days for the "automatically use relative paths" feature, at the very least.
