Just an absolute newbie running Inkscape 0.48.2 in a well working,
really beautiful, vintage declared but loved computer (2.1 GHz PowerPC
G5 & Mac OS X.5.8).
To get Previews from the Open Clip Art Library*, it is needed to be
registered at the openclipart.org site and fill up the user account data
in the Inkscape Preferences**?
* File > Import from Open Clip...
** Import/Export > Open Clip Art Library Username & Password.

I know that some features of Inkscape svg go
beyond the official svg standard and hence may
not be interpreted properly by web browsers etc.
Is there a list of these features somewhere?

I´ve found a mistake in the Spanish version 0.48.4 r9939 in the window
In the tab Simmetry at bottom where said *Altura, anchura* it must be*
Anchura, altura*. They are changed in the translation to Spanish version.
This isn't about a problem I'm having, although the question comes
up in a project I'm working on. I'm just curious about this behavior of
scaling patterns. If I apply a pattern fill to an object, and I scale that
object with either Selection tool or Transform dialog, the pattern is
scaled, along with the object. However, if I scale the object by moving
nodes, the pattern stays the same size, and just gets different boundaries.
So for example, I fill a square shaped, closed path with a pattern.
Let's say it's 100 x 100 px. If I scale with Selection tool or Transform
dialog, so that the square now is 60 x 60 px, the pattern is scaled
proportionally smaller. But if I move the nodes inwards (by 20 px each
way), so that the square is now 60 x 60 px, the pattern does not get scaled.
Why doesn't the pattern get scaled, when nodes are moved, like it
does when scaled with Selection tool or Transform dialog?
And I do understand how to edit patterns with the Node tool. So
that's not the issue. I just want to understand why one way of scaling,
affects the pattern, and another way of scaling, does not affect the
pattern. Is it possibly related to a bug? Or if this is expected behavior,
I'm just curious why moving nodes doesn't cause the pattern to change.
Can someone explain? (just for my curiosity)
Thank you very much :-)
I want to make the operation "D*ifference*" with two tracks.
One of them is a group created with a clon in mosaic: one straight line 1 x
30 column and turned 6º.
The other track is a square that it was converted into an object.
If I apply the operation *Difference *the information bar says: one of the
objects is not a track and it can't do the boolean operation
I don't understand why there is an object different than a track.
Thanks in advance.
Hi to all. I made a big update (0.4) to the extension "seamless

Would it be possible to have Guides around the yellow square inside the gray
square? It would make something to snap to, for a good alignment.
I guess the user can unlock those, and add guides themselves. But since
it's a template, it would be convenient if the guides were already in
place.....if it's possible. Maybe not possible, since the guides would have
to know where they belong, depending on the size they choose. But just a

Thanks again :-)

On Debian Wheezy, a look at dependencies indicates that Inscape depends
on dbus, via libgnomevfs2-0 and some other dependency routes. Modern
dbus has been co-opted by systemd, which I, and a lot of other people,
are refusing to put on their computers.
What would it take to get rid of all direct and indirect dependencies

Dear Inkscape experts,
I'm just testing the useful features of snapping but there are some points why I find the handling of this feature by Adobe products easier. Maybe you can help me with my problems (I'm using Inkscape-0.91pre2-1):
1) Snap of non-scaled contours
I've disabled the scaling of contous. When I take a line with an arrow end and snap it to a path or anything the countour is scaled during the procedure and when I release the mouse button the countour scales back to the original but this also moves the snapped point. This is definately not a feature. Is there anyone whi discovered the same effect or is there maybe a workaround oder is it a bug?
2) Snap with alignment
I'd like to scale one side of an rectangle and snap it to a boundary of another rectangle which has some distance. In Adobe Illustrator I can move over the path to be aligned to and now this path is included in the snapping selection. This is a very useful handling. Has someone an idea if this is possible or might been included in future versions?
