And the winner (by quite a bit, actually) is Euphoria Script!
Thanks to everyone for the votes and helping us choose a new open font.
The new font will be deployed to the website and relevant graphics.
You can start using it now in your inkscape-related materials by
downloading it here:
(includes font and ofl license files).
Have fun, and thanks again for the help!
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**?

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?

*Libre Graphics Meeting 2016: Other Dimensions*
The eleventh annual international Libre Graphics Meeting 2016 will take place Friday 15th until Monday 18th April 2016 in London, UK. This yearly event is an occasion for teams and individual contributors/artists involved in Libre Graphics to work together, to share experiences and to hear about new ideas. By Libre Graphics we mean Free, Libre and Open Source tools for design, illustration, photography, typography, art, graphics, page layout, publishing, 3D modelling, digital making and manufacture, cartography, animation, video, interactive media, generative graphics and visual live-coding. The Libre Graphics Meeting is not just about software, but extends to standards, file formats and actual use of these in creative work. LGM has become the place in which they can discuss their projects, coordinate their efforts and, crucially, to meet in person. Participants in the LGM include developers, designers, academics and activists from around the world, who are all passionate about Free/
ibre graphics software and technology.
*State of the Libre Graphics Union*
We begin each meeting with a joint session that brings together all things that have happened in our wide landscape over the last year. So, instead of slots in the schedule for general updates on each Libre Graphics software project, we invite every team present at LGM to submit two slides (maximum), with a short explanatory text that showcases the leaps forward that has been made over the past year. For first-time presenters and particular big or new topics/features in established projects, we encourage additional stand-alone submissions.
*Special focus: Other Dimensions*
In Toronto we celebrated the first decade of LGM, reflecting on the past and considering the future. For the 2016 edition of LGM we continue speculating and will expand Libre Graphics into Other Dimensions. We are looking for presentations and workshops that explore the dimensions of space and material: 3D modelling and animation, Libre architecture, Open Source product design and other fields of digital making and manufacture. We are also seeking contributions that offer reflections on the 'other dimensions' of open source communities and that engage with FLOSS tools in various contexts including but not limited to teaching, learning, practice and co-production. This represents a desire to address the future sustainability of the Libre Graphics movement, through a growth of the core projects and topics that will, we hope, allow us to welcome more and more FLOSS projects and participants to our community.
We are looking for:
* In-depth presentations of Libre Graphics code-contributions
* Showcases of excellent work made using Libre Graphics tools
* New and experimental projects in this area to meet the wider community, including those in the field of 3D design and making
* Reflections on the activities of existing open source communities in either the production of Free, Libre and Open Source tools or their use
Available formats (times include Q&A):
* Entry for State of the Libre Graphics Union (1-2 slides)
* Presentations (20 minutes)
* Workshops (1 or 2 hours)*
* Birds Of a Feather (BOF), discussion meetings or Hackathons (2 hrs or more)
* Lightning talk (7 minutes, selected at the event unconference style)
Submission deadline: 10 January 2016, content selection notification by end of January 2016.
I noticed a unexpected behaviour with the Document Settings dialog:
This dialogue has in its windows 7 version on the right upper corner the
three usual windows buttons Minimize, Maximize, and Close. I had
expected that this buttons would minimize, maximize or close only the
document settings dialogue. However, the close or minimize the entire
inkscape windows, that is also the drawing window. This should be
changed since it is unexpected and not plausible. I would suggest they
work only on the dialog, not the whole application.
Kind regards and Happy New Year

In a file I'm working on, I've ended up with several closed paths,
but they only have 2 nodes. Because they only have 2 nodes, I thought the
nodes were end nodes, and they could be joined to the end nodes of another
path. But they won't join. I assume it's because it's a closed path, so
they aren't really end nodes.
Next, I thought a fast way to fix the situation would be to delete
one of the segments between the 2 non-end nodes. But that deletes the whole
There are other options I can try, and eventually I'll hit on
something that works. But I'm wondering why I can't delete one the segments
between the 2 nodes.
In case it's something odd in this file, I've copied one of the
paths to a new file and attached.
So is there some reason why a segment can't be deleted from between
the nodes of a 2 node closed path? Or is it something weird in the file?

Thank you very much,
Hi to all, I just made a new extension to round to a fixed decimal
position some data in SVG.
Currently it round optionaly:
Nodes, with another optional check to move handles along

I've come across some wrong behavior that's new to me in version
0.91. I suspect it could be related to whatever is causing the behavior
described in this old report of mine, which (I'm happy) is in progress:
The reason I think it might be related is because (a) objects are
displaced, and (b) it only happens in Layer 1 of my default doc, which uses
the landscape orientation. When I make a new layer (which is the trick to
avoiding that bug) it doesn't happen.
However, there is some new/different unexpected behavior in the new
It seems to me like these might be separate problems, but I'll have
to leave it to you to decide. I just need to know (1) whether these things
need to be reported. And (2) if the first problem is related to the old bug
report, should I report this new behavior in a new comment? (It seems like
if the bug is causing new behavior in 0.91, assuming it really is related,
then it might be a clue to fixing it.) (just my simple sense of logic)
To reproduce in the attached file:
-- Draw a simple path under the bold red line, in Layer 1, with either the
Pen/Bezier or Pencil/Freehand tool.
-- Click Undo
The path moves above the red line. You have to click Undo a 2nd
time to actually get rid of the new path.
To reproduce in the attached file:
-- Draw a simple path anywhere, in Layer 2, with either the Pen/Bezier or
-- Click Undo
The path doesn't move. But it also doesn't go away. You have to
click Undo a 2nd time, to get rid of it.
I haven't tested every single tool, but so far, it's on the Pen and
Pencil tools that show this behavior. I think you might need something else
from me....maybe my preferences.xml file??? Or do you need my default doc?
Anyway, let me know whatever it is, and I'll send it :-)
Thank you very much,
