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**?
* 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 did end up using both the regular object fills and the paint bucket
while temporarily turning some layers off.

Sorry it took me a while to get back to this - other dramas to deal with

Yes, that is what I found.

Hi, I had an idea for a feature in inkscape, and I submitted a wishlist bug on 5-17-2014 and noone seems interested. It is a suggestion for a LPE for a spirograph pattern generator. I did some research and found the necessary math info to make the shapes, and the algorithm needed to make the result from the math usable in inkscape. I was thinking it would be great for certificates, and suchlike. Plus I think it would just be great fun to play with. Is anyone else interested? Maybe someone who knows calculus and c++? Anyway, here’s the link if you’re interested.
I am trying to create a series of sketches to show changes to roof
tressles (I want to create a wide manhole - see start of first sketch
attached) but I have run into problems with adding a fill colour (as
shading for the beams). It seems like it would be quicker and easier
for me if I could get the fill action to fill on ONE layer instead of
taking all of the lines for all the of layers into account - but this
doesn't appear to work? - is it possible somehow?

while preparing color images for printing in a book two years ago, I
noticed that the colors in the final pdf did not match those colors I
had chosen. The conversion from svg to pdf was obviously not correct. I
did not follow the discussion but would like to know whether the problem
remains or that there are ways to have the pdf the same colors as svg
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
Version: GnuPG v2
-----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
I would like to find an automatic solution for the following workflow.
* open/import file (eg. eps format)
o select all paths of color x (ctr+f in xml editor for first
o ctrl++ to union selection
o repeat for all remaining colors
* export to svg
or, if you will,
|open or import file (eg. eps format);
for (all colors in drawing)
select all paths of the current color;
perform union on selected paths;
I suppose there should be a solution along the lines of
|inkscape -f input.eps --verb=EditDeselect
--select=allPathsOfSameColors --verb=SelectionUnion --export-simple-svg|
However, I have no clue how to go about selecting all paths of the same
color or how to iterate over all colors.
Any help or pointers would be very much appreciated.
