I quite frequently need to convert PDFs into something convenient to
edit and SVG + Inkscape is the obvious choice. I use pstoedit with
either the plot-svg output or the shareware svg output but in either
case the output of converting a US letter file seems to be scaled down
to 80% when opened in Inkscape. Of course the page can be dragged up to
the correct size again but it would be better not to have to do this.
From the pstoedit developer:
"I did some investigations and it looks like this scaling issue is
different interpretations of the numbers in the SVG file. Somewhere I
that Inkscape has an internal factor of 0.8 "Inkscape pixels" per
have not found out yet, what pstoedit could generate so inkscape
the numbers as Points (except maybe adding a pt to every coordinate -
that would blow up the SVG file a lot).
Is there anyone who can shed some light on this?
