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've created three new grid creation extensions for inkscape.
The first is an update to Cartesian Grid that allows the use of real units
(inch, mm, cm, point) in addition to pixels and allows adjusting the color
of each graphic element (Border, X Major grid, X minor grid, X sub minor
grid, Y major grid, Y minor grid, Y sub minor grid).
The second is a triangular grid creator that can be used to create grids
with triangular meshes.
The third is a perspective grid creator that creates adjustable 2-point
Each of these grids can be useful for hand sketching aids, which is why I
You can get the extensions at:
I hope you find them helpful.
I've been working on a simple design for a logo.
For some strange reason, when I try to convert the lines to an outlined path, I loose some rounded corners, while others remain.
The issue is highlighted with a red circle.

Can someone explain this to me?
I feel like I must be missing something *really* obvious, but I can't
figure out how to do this. I have a rectangular document that I need to
make square, while keeping the contents centered. I.e., I need to add
equal amounts to the left and right side of the document.
How can I do this? I've tried simply entering the desired margin sizes
in the Document Properties dialog, but it has no effect. Changing the
width of the document to match the height extends the document to the
right, but it leaves the contents in their current position, which is
now shifted to the left.

I can't live without them once the document gets complex. A common scenario:
Object layer 3
Object layer 2
Object layer 1
Each one containing a fairly large number of objects/groups/etc.
Once you're dealing with hundreds or maybe thousands of objects,
selections can get nutty - layers really help out there. eg you can
lock or hide all the other layers and do a 'select all' on an object
Lots of bits of text with boxes around them? Here's an extension
to automatically resize all the boxes to fit all the texts with
specified padding, all at once. You just draw the boxes approximately
in the right place and the extension tidies everything up.
Perhaps something like this could be bundled with Inkscape?
I opened a wordpress blog where I would like to talk about Open Source multimedia software for making digital art.
