I've just installed Inkscape for the first time (on Windows 10) and discovered the toolbars and buttons are so tiny they're unrecognizable and unusable. This is due to Inkscape not being "High DPI Aware" (see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/hidpi/high-dpi-desktop-a...).
The temporary solution is to right click the Inkscape icon, choose the "Properties" context menu item, then choose the "Compatibility" tab. Click on "Change High DPI Settings" and in the group box "High DPI scaling override" check the check box "Override high DPI scaling behavior." In the drop list select "System (Enhanced)". Click the "OK" button.
Now relaunch Inkscape and the compatibility mode will take effect.
Not sure how to file a bug on here but perhaps one of the developers can?
Can someone tell me what the maximum image DPI is from Inkscape version
I have been able to export at 1,200 DPI, but can't at 3,000. Well, it
eventually will, however, the image colors are way off.
Some history on this problem. I have a web graphic I'm trying to turn into
a 10ftx3ft banner. Graphic was created in Inkscape as an SVG file.
Ideally, they'd like 300dpi to print this banner. This has worked in the
past, however, my computer was updated to Mac OS Mojave and the latest
version of Inkscape won't export correctly at the 3,000 DPI. This worked
on the version of Inkscape I had installed on Mac OSX 10.11, sorry, I don't
know what that version was. Probably 0.91
Basic question, is how to export high DPI images. Seems to have an issue
with applied filters.
Current image is 10 inches x 3 inches to obtain the correct effect from the
*P.S. Large fonts are used due to my poor eyesight.*
The Inkscape website will be opening a new forum in August 2019. The primary
purpose of the forum will be providing support for Inkscape, but it will serve
the whole project and community, in whatever way it can. It will function in
much the same way that InkscapeForum.com
(http://www.inkscapeforum.com/index.php) and Inkscape Community's forum
(https://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php?action=forum) currently do.
Concurrently to opening the new forum, Inkscape Community's forum will
essentially close. All of its forum traffic will be diverted to the new forum
(although its tutorials and other resources will remain available). Since the
Inkscape project has lost contact with the owner of InkscapeForum.com we assume
it will remain open.
Please make plans to change your forum bookmarks, and to visit the new forum in
August. If you're not already registered on the Inkscape website, you will need
to register. Once you're logged in to the website, you're also logged in to the
We will be thrilled to welcome you, and to provide the same quality of support
you're accustomed to! Here is the link to the new forum. Although please note
that posting will not be allowed until August. But you can look around and see
everything about how it works, except for posting a message.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Since we've had a volunteer to hear escalated complaints re the CoC
(thanks C R !!), I was able to finalize and post the forum rules and guidelines.
I made the sticky forum post about this. If anyone has any comments or
suggestions about what I wrote, please let me know and I'll edit it.
(Note that you can't post in the forum yet.)
I replied but the mail server rejected the message because it had a zip
attachment. Here's a link to the zip archive on my Mediafire account :

I still making an Inkscape course documentation and I need to do some
I want the screenshots be as Inkscape default appearance, but I can't do
that cause my desktop (Debian GNU/Linux + XFCE) is configured with an
icon theme. This theme.
So, when I launch Inkscape it looks great with these nice icons, but it
is not a good idea to teach newbies using Inkscape screenshots that does
not looks like his running inkscapes.
How I can start Inkscape ignoring my environment icon theme.
Thanks a lot!
