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'm running Inkscape 0.91 on xubuntu 14.04 64-bit.
After a fresh install, every time I try to use the font tool, it defaults
to the "Sans" font. I don't have this font on my computer. The red circle
with the white exclamation in the font selection dropdown tells me that
Inkscape knows that "Sans" isn't on my computer. The only way that I could
get the font that I wanted was to type out the text and then change the
I finally fixed it by going to the Preferences window, Text screen, and
selecting the "Last used style" radio button under "Style of new objects"
But if I go back to "This tool's own style" it defaults to the last font
selected, regardless of what font I select before placing the cursor.
Selecting the "Last used style" option corrects the problem for me. I am
not sure if the font getting stuck on one font issue is more than just my
system, if it's functioning as designed, or if it is a clue to a potential
bug in the application. Just wanted to raise the issue, just in case.
I use Octave  to generate plots as svg files and rework them later in
Inkscape (0.48.4 in linux mint 17). As Octave uses opengl as its primary
graphics renderer, polygons are always tessellated into smaller
triangles. Unfortunately the boundary between triangles is visible on
screen in Inkscape (see the attached simple plot).
This is also true if I simply draw 2 triangles that have a common
boundary, i.e. using "snap to grid" to ensure edges have the exact same
coordinates: I can see a white boundary line on screen (and in pdf/eps
outputs) between the two triangles. Is there a workaround in Inkscape?
Does svg specification have a flag that tels the viewer something like
"don't draw boundaries"?
You have decimals in the point positions of the triangles?

How can I make the text glow / highlight ?
I tried one of the filters (Glow) but that isn't doing much)
I want to use the text for a buton, and when someone presses the button, I
want to see it all highlighted..
Ps. I am working with version 0.9.1 64 bit and it seems to slow, and
crashing a lot (just quits)
Is 0.48 better to use ? since all the videos I can find , seems to be all
done with 0.4.8
I'm using Inkscape 0.91 on Ubuntu 12.04.
With some fonts, when entering a double s ("ss") in a text block, it is
automatically replaced with a sharp s
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%9F). However, sharp s is always
incorrect spelling in Switzerland.
This problem appears with all fonts of the ADF family and with Verana,
but not with many others.
I suppose this is an Inkscape feature. If so, how can I turn it off?
Thanks in advance.
