It can't ever catch all the cases, though. Layers? Groups?
blur? A clip or mask? Other objects above in a different layer? There
are so many of those that cause drawing invisible objects, and Inkscape
doesn't help with determining the cause (btw. opacity at 0 is the most
frequent cause, esp. as there is a bug about the opacity indicator field
in the current stable version, after that comes 'fill alpha at 0'. 'no
stroke, no fill' is a lot rarer, in my experience).
I'm sure we can catch some or most of these. I still maintain it's an
error to draw a shape with no fill and no stroke, regardless of the
reason ... with the possible exception of masking or clipping. I don't
see how groups would be a problem unless the group were set to 0%
- Happens, unfortunately. And people don't notice they are in one when
they try to draw something.
another thing whic is inadvisable for all the same reasons.
:) Regardless, if the user hits escape twice, it exits out of any groups
etc. We should make sure that at least in this condition, where nothing
else is interfering, the user is able to draw visible shapes effectively
without having to tweak anything to see what they are drawing. :)
- It might be inadvisable, but it's quick and a way that is currently
available to change the line width of a line drawing (like a simple
cartoon). I wasn't talking about gradients, and also not about shape
A better method is to enter the group, select all, and adjust the
line-width there. Being able to set the stroke, but not stroke gradient,
or fill but not fill gradient on a group is inconsistent behaviour and
needs to be fixed one way or the other - either the group is treated
like selecting all its contents, or the group needs to be treated like a
separate shape. Right now its both, and is confusing and inconsistent UX.
- I can set the fill and stroke gradient for a group just fine (in both
master and 0.92.x), what are the cases in which this doesn't work?
Your suggested change can make some actions take a lot longer, because
one needs to select only objects that have a stroke in a group, to
change their stroke width.
I just don't expect Inkscape to add a stroke when I change the line
width - I understand that it might help new users, but it's also
Currently, if the user adjusts the line width and there's no stroke, the
value is thrown away entirely. That's absolutely apalling UX. :)
- It doesn't do that for me in 0.92.x, which I routinely use. But the
behavior is new in master - and I just noticed someone removed the
stroke width indicator in the lower left corner! Why was that removed? I
use it so often for quick adjustments.
I think these are bugs. This can't be intentional...
