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?
Free list of books for self-publishers:
PDF e-book: "Create Book Covers with Scribus"
I wonder whether the file is formed in such a way that inkscape has a hard
time with it?
Google Chrome's file dialog can preview the file instantly and then renders
it within 3 seconds, wheres Inkscape hangs for minutes when trying to
preview it or to open it.
What inkscape does successfully is, in a few minutes, to save it as PDF
from the command line using the -A switch. Saving to PDF shrinks the file
from the original 8 MB down to ~800 KB.
As a PDF Inkscape has no problem previewing it instantly, and opening it
within 20 seconds or so. It's the only way I managed to open the file with
Given that we generate this file ourselves from our own software (
github.com/acardona/CATMAID/), I would appreciate if someone could look at
the SVG example file and let us know what would be best for Inkscape
regarding formatting, choice of svg vs g elements, and styling.
Example files (original SVG and also the PDF as saved with inkscape -A):

Welcome Elisa! Perhaps an initial task for you could be to list some

As the developers put the final touches on the 0.91 release, it's high
time to plan a media blitz to get this announced to all our users.
I'd like to recruit and organize a formal team to do marketing for
Inkscape. This'll involve writing copy, planning announce strategies,
notifying news sites, coordinating with parallel fundraising efforts,
and more. We'll be organizing an online IRC meeting soon to coordinate
these activities. Sound like fun?
Ryan Lerch, Josh Andler, and myself are already signed on; we've been
through the release announcement process before so we're old hands. But
we're looking for new ideas and fresh blood, so that we can go beyond
what we've achieved in the past.
Interested? Reply to this email and introduce yourself!
P.S. Inkscape's past marketing teams have left us a wealth of notes we
can use to build from. Two items in particular:
Hi everyone, I have an idea: add a view mode in Inkscape. That means
with one click, you will hide all menus and panels; another click,
everything appears again. Easy come, easy go.
This has some advantages:
* Load time of Inkscape and Inkview are not so different.
* Inkview is lack of feature. Especially zooming.
* Easy to modify the svg, instead of viewing it in Inkview or in browers.
* Personally, I would like to have a separate app to view it, rather
than implement it into browsers.
What do you think?
I wonder if we could have a auto fill option.
if the page is set to A4 we create a shape or text or whatever and then
select it, then copy it and then have an option to paste as many copies as
possible that will fit on the page size
for users that don't have a page then maybe they could draw a rectangle the
size they want and auto fill could be set to use that size.
handy for labels with logos but also for repeat cuts of the same sized
Dear Website Users,
Some of you may have experienced the menu explosion bug that the website
won't cause an infinite loop) and for the menus themselves which were
getting progressively worse as the caches refreshed.
Please test and don't hesitate to make a bug if you notice anything

Hello, im member from a group of people interested in libre graphics
called "Grafica Libre", one member ask me for a new effect.
The request is for made triangulation delaunay from a image.
I think could be ?easy made from extension -there is existing code- but
i want to do from a LPE because:
I want to put a KNOT in each extemium of a triangle -shared with
continuous triangles- who act as modifier of the final result.
The thread give me a brunch of links but to me the one i like more is
I want to put similar controls to the LPE + ability to touch triangles,
maybe could remove knots -and triangles-
I ask previusly by IRC about using images in LiveEffect for use in the
perspective LPE with something as "original-src", i take a response
about in IRC "not a good idea inkscape strore hacked versions of images
like illustratos do", but this case is diferent, because only obtain
data from the image. So there is a objection about this use?
Finaly... There is a multiplataform image libray bundled in inkscape for
c++ or python?
