I have a question regarding the use of a wacom tablet, specifically key
presses that are mapped via GNOME settings on the Wacom section or if
somehow wacom is the culprit in this case.
I'm uncertain if the issue is as a result of mapping the keys in the GNOME
settings or if Inkscape needs some time to interpret those mapped keys.
So to get into it, I have mapped the three buttons in GNOME settings to use
inkscape shortcuts and they work a good 85% of the time. The issue is that
crops up is that, sometimes when pressing those keys Inkscape brings up
another dialogue box, which I'm guessing is Inkscape interpreting me
pressing those shortcuts keys and me getting the wrong resulting command
(the dialogue box).
Here is the exact scenario.
I have a set of multiple images that need to be clipped, duplicated, and
converted to a bitmap then continuing along the task of clipping those
images from the various areas on the image.
How can I avoid this happening? Or is the only way to press the mapped keys
at a slower rate?
Wednesday at 7pm New York time I'm giving a presentation on Linux
authoring tools, with an emphasis on Inkscape. Meeting details and URL
are available at http://golug.info.
Autumn 2020 featured book: Thriving in Tough Times
the Inkscape project is going to host a virtual booth/stand at the
Chemnitzer Linuxtage, on March 13 and 14 this year!
We have already gathered a small booth team of 4, possibly 5, but the
CLT (Chemnitzer Linuxtage) are all-day events and we could use your help
answering user questions about how to work with the program, how to
contribute to it and about what is going on in the Inkscape community.
We might even do some short, up to 20min topic-focused sessions, if
someone would like to organize (one of) them.
So, if you're a developer, a forum member, a regular user support
provider in our chat channels, an Inkscape translator, or are
contributing to the project more or less regularly in any other way, and
you have some time available to spend helping the Inkscape project on
that weekend in March, please introduce yourself at the GitLab issue
report where we're discussing the event organization!
We would also be glad to have someone on board from any of the maker
labs or similar communities, who are proficient in helping with maker
topics, or who can demo something interesting in a short session (or
both :) ). Or if you'd like to present the top 10 Inkscape extensions
that people must know about, or do a quick drawing session, or want to
tell people how to compile Inkscape and get started with development or
... whatever you can think of.
Please get in contact with us as soon as possible and find more info at
Let us know how you can help make the booth an interesting place for
visitors to drop by!
We're going to have a meeting with all those interested in about a week,
so it would be good to hear from you before that.
I'm going to announce the meeting time in a separate message.
Hope to see you - and if you are not able to join us at the booth,
consider visiting us there!
