Well, I had hoped someone would simply say "yeah, sure, of course the
export to bitmap function has a slightly different output, ...", but I
guess that's not the case. But before actually filing a bug report I
would like to have it confirmed that it actually is a bug, as I can
think of reasons why export to bitmap might produce different outputs (I
could imagine some sort of caching is used for on-screen display for
example, which might change the order in which the different objects are
composited). Anyway, have a look at the following two images:
They both come from the same version of Inkscape (the modified one I
just posted about in another e-mail, but 0.44 has the exact same issue)
and show the same file on the same scale, yet the banding and coloring
are slightly different.
Oh, I think I see what's going on. Inkscape has a defined "canvas
area", as indicated by the document outline thingee. Anything
overlapping or extending beyond that box is clipped when you export.
In your screenshot it's clear you can see there is portions of the
document extending beyond this boundary; it looks like inside the
boundary everything is identical for both images.
Possibly you disagree with this approach, but it is only the default.
Inkscape has some controls to let you disable/alter this behavior:
* In Document Preferences -> Page, adjust Show canvas border, show
page shadow, etc. as suits you.
* In export bitmap, experiment with exporting page vs. drawing
vs. selection vs. custom. This will allow you to export
stuff that extends beyond the normal page boundary, or to clip it
down to specific objects or specific dimensions of the drawing, or
whatever you desire.
Hope this helps, thanks for posting the gfx.
