You can also do this with Illustrator scripting, with same caveat as @Wrzlprmft's answer that objects have to be at top level. (you can recurse the for loop for groups compound paths etc if you wish. This is a quick example after all): #target illustrator var sel = app.activeDocument.selection; var file = File.saveDialog('save centers', 'center:*.txt'); ...

I will explain how to make one central element. The rest ist straightforward, I hope. Create three concentric circles with equal differences between their diameters (e.g., 200, 250 and 300). Create a vertical line that is as least as long as the biggest circle’s diameter. Centre that line on the circles. Duplicate that line and rotate it by 120 °. You ...

I opened a few of the SVGs in Inkscape, the grid is just an object. In Inkscape, just single click the grid and press the Delete key. You can single click and drag the grid, just to make certain that you selected it and not part of the icon.

Ungroup your objects, if needed. Object → Transform → Scale. Select the desired scaling factor. Check apply to each object separately. Apply.

If you look into the source of your SVG (open it with a text editor), you will find mainly stuff like this: <rect style="opacity:0.57009343;color:#000000;fill:#3f3790" id="rect2996" width="10.714286" height="52.857143" x="282.85715" y="155.16518" transform="translate(242.40625,114.78125)" /> Those lines starting with x= and y= ...

I believe what you need is to clip your image (clipping is using a path to cut and define the shape of another path or image). In order to do this select both the object and the clipping path. The clipping path must be above the object to be clipped in z-order. Then use the Object → Clip → Set command. To unclip a clipped object, select the object and ...

for speed up the method of Matt Bracewell: select two paths combine (Ctrl+K) (you have 1 path) edit node mode (F2) border select the 4 node (close to white space) "delete segment between two non-endpoint nodes" (Alt + Canc) select a pair of nodes "join selected node" (Shift + J) or "join selected end nodes with new segment" (Alt + J) repeat for oher pair

You're so close with your question - you just need to turn your mid points into end points. In my screenshot I've filled the parts so you can see the path more clearly. Select one of the pieces and in node edit mode use the separate tool with tooltip "delete segment between two non-endpoint nodes". Repeat for the other piece and now you've got two sets ...

The symbol is like a clone: select the symbol and Edit > Clone > Unlink Clone (Shift+Alt+D), and you have a group, ungroup (Object > Ungroup, or Shift+Ctrl+G) and edit.

Given the choice I'd never lay out body text in an Inkscape file destined for output via Scribus as Scribus handles this sort of text so much better. That said, if you've inherited the files or there's some other compelling reason behind your question then using pdf as the intermediate file "might" work. In Inkscape's Save As pdf dialogue there's a ...

Should I design each resolution independently?? It depends on the icon. Flat, bold line art can probably be designed as an SVG and just scaled as needed in the app/website. This is how icon fonts work...they are just vector icons and resize as needed. On the other hand, if it's a photo-realistic icon with fine details, then typically the process is: ...
