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?
Jessyink is really a very nice extension to Inkscape to enable doing
dynamic presentations, I can really recommend it! There are two
versions, I use the latter, Jessyink 2.0.0-alpha1.
However, I usually end up adding effects and manually setting the order
and eventually running out of numbers. E.g. I start to number the
effects by 10, 20, 30, etc. but soon end up having orders 1, 2, 3, 4,
... and wanting to insert a new efect between e.g. 2 and 3. Therefore I
wonder, is there some way to renumber the effects to make some space
that I have missed?
As the svg-files are just text files, I am considering a script to do
this to find and renumber the effects; the finding part can be achieved by
| cat my_svg_file_with_jessyink.svg|grep "sodipodi:role=\"line\">[0-9]*</tspan></text>"|grep [0-9]*
This gives all the lines with effect numbers, maybe sed or awk can be
used in a loop to renumber in order and increment by a
desired step (e.g. 10). Now, my skills are not really up to the task, so
before embarking, the question is is this really the best route to go or
are there any better ideas?
Thanks and cheers!
I am trying to collect an number of characters to generate a font file
(for oracle bone script).
I am importing (inkscape) SVG files into inkscape to assign the path to
a particular character. My characters are usually 700 x 1000 inkscape
units large. In the Preview Text some are the right size, some are
substantially smaller than expected, looking more like a superscript.
The characters in the attached screenshot are all the same size on the
Is this a problem with the preview feature, or a problem with the SVG
Thank you for any help.
I'm using Inkscape 0.48, ubuntu 11.10.
I can't change the color of a clone without unlinking it.
I tried to reproduce the steps here :
But Inkscape don't let me change the color. I can change the blur
level, the opacity, but not the color, or the stroke.
I was wondering if it's possible to set the coordinates of gradient nodes. If I click the node tool while the gradient handles are visible, I can see the X,Y coordinate fields in the toolbar, but they are blurred out.
I just wanted to shoot out a message to let people know that we've
been accepted as a mentoring organization again this year. If you know
any college or graduate school students who would qualify and be
interested, please let them know, we would like to talk to them. :)
Before I spend a lot of time trying the impossible:
In Gimp it is possible to take two overlapping bitmap images
(like photos) and blend one into the other using a gradient on
the topmost bitmap? Inkscape has the ability to blend two vector
objects in this manner. But what about bitmaps?
If I vectorize the top image will that make it possible?
(Unfortunately vectorized photos often come up huge.)
I use Inkscape to draw diagrams, however I have some problems to draw
nice looking arrow end markers. The problem is that when I have an arrow
pointing to a box, the arrow gets overlapped to the contour of the box.
That can be solved quite easily defining a marker which has its anchor
point at the proper distance from the end of the stroke to which it is
applied (such that the cuspid of the arrow is stroke width / 2 from the
end of the stroke segment it is applied to). However, this solution
leaves a small segment of the stroke past the arrow marker (see
atachment, I would like to get rid of the small red segment on the right
of the black arrow).
The "manual" solution is to draw the connecting stroke lines a little
shorter than required to connect the boxes. However, this is very
tedious and error prone to do, and makes the connection tool useless.
There is a way to obtain what I have in mind?
Does the plugin interface allow to define new tools, like the connector
tool, in which I can embed the behavior I would like? Should I look into
extending the connection tool? How difficult would that be?
Thank you. Cheers,
