Select both (by clicking one object, holding shift, then clicking the other object), then select Path, then Difference. For me, I wanted to cut a left arrow out of a hexagon. I created a hexagon, duplicated the layer, shifted the top layer to the right, then selected both layers, then PATH / Difference.

To make a downloaded SVG fit the page in Inkscape we have two options: 1. Clip the image to the page dimensions Import the SVG to a predefined page size Draw a rectangle filling the whole page (or the area we want to clip out of the SVG): Select both, the imported object(s), and the clipping rectangle (or choose Edit > Select all Ctrl + A) Choose ...

Edit strokes in path edit mode It is easy in Inkscape to change the length of a stroke in edit path mode () which will leave stroke properties including markers untouched: This will only work on single strokes with predefined markers. This is not the case in the example SVG we have in the question. Move marker objects with stroke After ungrouping the ...

Nico Bach is right! First unlock the layer "grid" in the layer dialog (shift-ctrl-L). After that, make sure to use "snap nodes, paths and handles" instead of "snap bounding boxes". Also select "snap cusp nodes", and grab your selection close to an intersection of the black lines. When selecting everything the bounding box would also include the "A" and the ...

Adjusting the overall space between letters is actually called Tracking! :) Hopefully this will help you find your answer if you ask elsewhere. Pulled from: http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2216 While in Text tool select all of the text (Ctrl + a) and then Alt + >. If for the ">" sign doesn't have it's own key on your keyboard layout ...

After applying the drop shadow to the rectangle, go to filter general settings in the filter editor dialog. Change the values for co-ordinates x & y which displaces the top left origin point of the rectangle. Similarly adjust the dimensions correspondingly to retain the same width & height for the shadow. The values specified in the image is the ...

You can specify the export area when exporting, e.g., with the following command-line option: --export-area=20:20:220:220

Make sure that you don't have any layers locked. That could prevent items from being moved.

Well, there is Fill Bounded Areas (the paint bucket), which still needs solid lines to work as you desire, but you need not combine them or similar. Note however, that this tool does not yield precise results. You can avoid some of the problems though by making your lines very thin initially.

Yes, you can do it in Gimp, but in my opinion is simpler with ImageMagick (see also here). You need to put a lot of guidelines where you need to cut: And then simply apply the Guillotine transform: After this, you have the original image split in a lot of imagettes: And you have to save - pardon, export - each of them with a proper name. Ok, maybe ...

I would use another tool, like "image magick", to "compile" your exported png into slices. For example : http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/crop/

I tried applying Pattern along path to the object but with a small modification as follows: Initially I ungrouped the object. All strokes in the object were converted to path using Path-Stroke to path(Ctrl+Alt+C) command & were grouped. Then I drew a curve(skeleton) which the pattern should follow.Lower the z-order of the curve (always the curve ...

I am not entirely sure that I unterstood correctly what you want to do, but I suggest the following: Create one sample tile with every text aligned as you wish using the corresponding text alignment. I.e., your letter is not only centred optically but also the text-alignment is centred. Your number should be probably right-aligned. Replace the letter with ...

I just fully describe what I did to achieve something similar. You need to see which steps you can skip or need to adapt. Create a rectangle. Use Extensions → Render → Function Plotter with these settings. Duplicte the result and shift it horizontally as desired. Select both. Path → Combine (you can also add your orange lines here). Create your ι. ...

As SVGs are XML-based, it’s relatively simple to write yourself a program that generates the lines as desired. Just generate yourself a file with two lines and take a look at the source to learn the relevant parts of the syntax. If you lack the programming skills and if you want the line thicknesses to decay exponentially, you can do the following ...

Doing this with Inkscape will be very difficult. One of the crucial missing tools is a non-destructive perspective transform that can operate on groups. (You need this perspective transform functionality in order to place the logo on the mocukup at an angle that looks realistic.) Currently Inkscape only allows perspective transform on one path, and the ...

Theoretically, this should depend on the method by which you scale the PDF. PDF files generated from Inkscape do store the stroke width of paths (as is evident by exporting to PDF and then re-importing into Inkscape), so the choice will be up to the application scaling the PDF to determine exactly how to perform the scaling. That being said, I would guess ...

After seeing your file, I can answer. At first, duplicate the Tardis with Ctrl-D, then select just the duplicate, hit repeatedly Shift-Ctrl-G to ungroup all the nested groups until appears the message "No groups to ungroup in the selection". The groups contain text and other objects, so you have to use Path...Object to path, and again Shift-Ctrl-G until ...

Yes! Here is the end result: Step by step: Create some flowed text by using the text tool to first drag a rectangle and then type. Separately, create a rectangle roughly around the text (really, the rectangle can be anywhere) With the rectangle selected, chose "Path" > "Linked Offset". Then grab the small diamond and drag it in to make a ...

When you double click on a path in Inkscape, you enter in node editing mode and you can edit the path. You can return to select mode by clicking the arrow in the toolbar on the left (or by hitting the keyboard shortcut, usually F1): In select mode you can resize or rotate your shape. You can change the stroke attributes using the button on the top ...

Adobe Ideas essentially uses the Blob Brush to draw. This means it expands artwork and nothing remains as a stroke. Everything becomes a shape. In Illustrator... An easy way to reduce the width of a shape, especially in a black and white image, is to add a white stroke to the shape. Then select the shape and choose Object > Expand. Then click the ...

Whenever we perform boolean operations on two objects a single new object will be created. This new object will have it's own properties for fill and stroke on the whole object (left side in the image below). There is no object having different fill and stroke properties from the inside or the outside. To overcome this in the example given I worked with the ...
