Making Screen Units and SVG Units the same
by Philip Rhoades
When I create a new image, I get a page that, in Landscape mode, is 800
units wide and 600 units high. I know that the origin for the SVG
y-axis is at the top-left of the screen and the positive direction is
down and the reverse is the case for the Inkscape y-axis and I am not
concerned for this exercise about printed output. I just want the
absolute units on the screen to correspond to the absolute units in the
SVG file that Inkscape produces - is this possible? (I couldn't find
anything in the program or Googling . .)

Transparency bug with clipping ?
by Pierre Massat
I'm working on a poster (which needs to be delivered tomorrow...), and when
attempting to export it as pdf I realized that some transparency was lost.
After quite some time spent trying to figure it out, it turns out that it's
most likely because of clipping. Transparent objects in a clipped group
loose their transparency when exported, while they keep it if their group
is not clipped (e.g. when I ungroup the clipped group).
Please see the file attached. Try to export it as pdf, with all defaults.
You should see that the circles on the main map at the top are transparent,
while those who belong to a group that was clipped (for instance in the
zoomed map of Europe at the top, or in both maps at the bottom).
This looks a lot like a bug to me.
Do you know how I can fix that ? I need the clipped version of the map of
course, the other one won't fit in my layout...
Thank you in advance for your help.
