Select the white object Choose "Path" > "Stroke to path" Select both objects and choose "Path" > "Difference". (The white object will need to be on top, which clearly it is in this case.)

Select the group and use Ctrl+Enter to enter the group.

Short answer: no, you can not edit an EPS from a vector application directly in Photoshop. Slightly longer and more meaningful answer: You can not directly edit the vector shapes, points, lines, or fills of an EPS file saved from a different application inside of Photoshop but you can manipulate colors and appearance using Photoshop's adjustment layers and ...

The path marker functionality in Inkscape is woefully limited. I would suggest creating your arrowhead as a separate path object, from scratch. It's definitely cumbersome for designs that include a large number of arrows, but you will have a lot more control over the size and position of the arrowhead.

When Inkscape exports to bitmap formats it defaults to rasterising full size at 90dpi. As you ask Inkscape to increase the pixel dimensions of your export it will likewise increase the dpi setting. If you want to export your svg at a specific pixel size you should scale your artwork to that size before exporting. This isn't an Inkscape bug but appears to ...

This problem has nothing to do with software choice or settings therein but basic mathematics. If your output is intended to be square raster files in multiples of 22 then the source (vector) file and the major elements should be simply divisible by 22. With the horizontal line elements in your design being half the height of their respective dots, and ...

Three ideas here: 1) Don't use word I am asuming you are using word as a midle step fo generate a pdf. So if that is the case don't use it. Word is a realy bad option to handle raster images. It process the inserted images compressing them and resampling them. Instead Save a copy of your work directly as pdf. File > Save as > Choose pdf as the output ...

It's a whole bunch of metadata, including embedded JPEG thumbnails: You can open that PDF in a text editor and delete the entire block if you want, and the PDF still works: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l7saorb5zcxr3mf/stripped%20metadata.pdf?dl=0 (about 6kB) Or you can run it through Acrobat Pro and do the "Sanitize" command, which makes it even smaller ...

Another much easier solution is: don't use latex in Matlab 2014b to label your axis. For example, you cannot have any thing like x_1^*. If you use only plain text in Matlab, then when you save the file to svg, the text will be kept. You can then edit the .pdf_tex file generated by Inkscape to show the correct label. This is of course due to the bug of the ...

If you've combined all your paths into one, try this. Go to the "Fill" tab of the "Fill and Stroke" dialog. At the top right of the Fill tab is "Fill rule". Set this to "evenodd" (the one on the left). I'm guessing this will do it. Or, if your paths are still separate: Select all paths Choose "Path" > "Exclusion"

The "Edge 3D" Extension duplicates the selected Path object to create a clipping path. This mask is applied to a group of smaller paths that have a Gaussian Blur Effect. You can see this relationship clearly if you look at the XML Tree in Edit > XML Editor. Unfortunately, this effect is not "live". Any changes to the original path are not applied to the ...

I am not certain that I correctly understood what you want, but Path → Union (Ctrl + +) should do the job. You may need to apply Object to Path in advance.

If they are shapes, select them all, duplicate them, then union them into one shape.

The Image Trace tool is a good tool to start with, but after that you have to clean up the result. To have a nice ribbon, I would select the ribbon segments, go to the Pathfinder palette and click on Unite to have one object, and then fill it with a gradient. There are also gradients in the lion (one for the head and one for the body), you could use that ...

The artifacts you experience come from the supposed-to-be invisible strokes at the outer rim of the stacked objects created for each color chosen at tracing. Artifacts may become worse in case we had applied a Gaussian blur to the bitmap before tracing. This is done by the smooth option in the Inkscape trace dialog. Therefore it was a good idea to not check ...

The problem is basically in the way Inkscape is deciding to split your image into color regions: instead of simply having the lighter colors overlap the darker ones (or vice versa), you're ending up with two adjacent color areas that both overlap a third color. Since the edges don't line up perfectly (due to both tracing inaccuracies, and also some ...

Here's an easy way to do it if the bars are rectangles and you'd like to keep them that way: Use the bezier tool to draw a line where you'd like the cut to be placed. (Hold the shift key to ensure a perfectly horizontal line, and begin drawing with a click-release instead of a click-hold to ensure a straight line.) Turn on snap, and ensure that "Snap to ...

I'd use the "difference" operation. Here's an example of what it can do: Start with a path like the blob shown above. Create another path on top (stacking order matters here) for the part that you wish to remove, like the rectangle above. Select them both and choose "Path" > "Difference". Since you have multiple objects on which you'd like to ...

Take a look at the 3D boxes tool. It allows you to create three-dimensional boxes with up to three vanishing points and keep those vanishing points consistent over many boxes. The main drawback is that you cannot convert the boxes to wireframes without converting them to paths first (as of Inkscape 0.48).
