Hi is a problem because when you group a "circle" change from svg:path
to svg:ellipse and this dont handle well LPE inside grups.
Workarround: convert circles to paths pre-lpe it if inside a group.
Still playing with 0.92pre2 and came across some unexpected behavior
of nodes. I made a very short video, but I can provide more docs if needed.
(Btw, you can also see that weird HSL display in the window, which has been
So you can see that I've enabled the rotation handles on some
selected nodes, and rotated them slightly. Then I want to move them just by
simple drag. But as soon as I drag them, they un-rotate themselves, so that
the drag has taken effect, but the rotation was undone.
Windows 7, 64-bit, sp1, Inkscape 0.92pre2 exe installer, 32-bit. I
don't have a clue where to start looking for what's causing this. Since I
guess this is a kind of tranformation, I looked at Inkscape Preferences >
Behavior > Transform. It's set for Optimized, but I don't know (a) what
that means or (b) whether it should even matter in this situation.
Is there a way to prevent the rotation from being undone? It does
work to do the drag first and rotation last. So I guess it's a workaround.
Thank you very much,
I'm on the PPA of a (very) shaky Inkscape 0.92 devel build. (Ubuntu 16.04)
Can anyone describe how to get perspective on a group?
I watched the youtube (linked from the release notes) but it does not match
what I see on my end.
1. Draw a few circles. Group them. Select the group.
2. Open Path Effects window. Add "Perspective/Envelope".
3. Switch to the node tool (manually).
4. Drag the corners around.
1. Only affects one thing in the group.
2. or crashes Inkscape.
3. or does nothing. The group remains the same.
Since I recently learned how to enable the Gradient Mesh tool in
0.92pre2 (and 0.91 too) I wonder if it could be used in the About Screen
Contest? Or would it not be fair, since most people probably don't know
Hi Jabier and All,
I found an odd behavior in Rotate Copies LPE. Whenever I choose an
odd number of copies, it makes double that number. Even numbers, it makes
So if I choose 6 copies, it makes 6 copies. If I choose 7 copies,
it makes 14! If I set to 8, it makes 8. I set 9, it makes 18. Etc.
I made a video.
Do you need the SVG file?

I'm usinig the Perspective/Envelope LPE (in 0.92pre2 for about
screen contest). I duplicated an object which I applied it to, and set it
aside, because I wanted to test a certain edit, but not lose the original.
However, when I edit the duplicate, the original is edited too, as if it
were a clone.
Should that be happening? Or am I doing something wrong?
Sorry for all the messages today. Even if I'm not much of an
artist, just using this dev version for the contest, allows me to have a
personal experience with all the various toys and issues. So I can be ready
to help to answer questions from other users.
I was having a little bit of a problem using a filter, and never did
figure out why it looks differently on a larger object than on a smaller
one. Eventually I just tweaked the filter on the larger one.
But then I made a PNG export, and the filter looks much better
through the Windows Photo Viewer (Windows 7). Compare
The first one is what I see in Inkscape. First, notice in the
smaller object where the filter looks a little better than on the larger
one. (I mean the lavendar colored strokes with Raised Border filter). But
mainly I'm curious about the difference between the Inkscape canvas and the
Windows Viewer. See in the 2nd one, the filters are displayed in a much
nicer way, at least imo.
So I know that different viewers have different abilities and
support different features. But it seems to me like Inkscape should be
having the most ideal display. What can the reason for this be? I have not
noticed this much of a difference in previous versions.
Ooohh -- I just learned from a previous question about the dpi being
different in 0.92. Could that explain this different display? Is there
some other place besides Export PNG, where I need to change the dpi?
Something in Inkscape Prefs maybe?
Thanks for your help :-)
Nov 13th is the date being circulated as the deadline for the About
Screen Contest. For some reason, I thought it was the 8th. I'm thinking it
would be good to have the deadline date mentioned on the instructions page.
And I would do it myself, except I'm not 100% positive that it's the 13th.
If we can confirm the date, I'll add it to the page :-)
