You can make a portable SVG file by converting the text to a vector path. Select the text object, then go to the menu Path → Object to Path. (You could also use Stroke to Path, depending upon what you want to do). Of course as a vector, the text will no longer b be editable as text, but that may not matter as much to you as being able to have your SVG ...

You can use the paint bucket tool. It will create a new closed path congruent with the D shape. You can group the original path and the paint path, so the move around together.

Check out this tool https://github.com/redwarp/9-patch-resizer It will automatically resize .png files into several densities.

UPDATE: With the additional details you provided in the comments I believe I better understood your question, so let me provide an update. The answer below is still valid - if you transform the object as a whole, you distort the stroke. If you don't, you don't. Exporting the shape to a PDF or a PNG should not affect the stroke at all (see below). I ...

What values should I set my page border to? For icons, buttons and pretty much any other assets you should include only the minimal padding in the image itself. The rest should be done programmatically within Android, e.g. by using padding and margin in your layout. I usually add the image padding with a transparent rectangle that is grouped with the ...

Your text is nested in a lot of groups, one of which is used by a clip path and is the cause of the truncation of the text. You can see it in the XML Editor: The fastest way to free your text is select it and keep hit Shift-Ctrl-G to ungroup until your text is no more grouped: Alternatively, you can change the size of the clipping rectangle.

With the "+" selected use Alt+Arrow keys to adjust the positioning of the glyph. Alt+↑/↓ will "shift" vertically as you want to do. Alt+←/→ will adjust the kerning. Reference: http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Text-Formatting.html

I wanted to cut a cross shape out of another shape. I used the original shape.svg and another image, cross.svg (which was the exact shape I wanted to cut out). Now, I tried all of the suggestions here, but none of them worked and after much experimenting, I found an easy approach which I hope will work for others. open inkscape open shape.svg import cross....

Inkscape definitely does not shorten lines. I reconstructed your drawing and Inkscape properly splits the shape with combined paths: Here is what almost certainly happened (of course without seeing your SVG I cannot be 100% sure): Could it be that you had your line caps set to "Square cap" instead of "Butt cap"? In that case some of your drawn paths ...

Could also create the basic 3-line shape, turn it into a brush pattern and adjust the settings until you have 12 in a circle.

The commenters have said it all. Here it is, step by step: In a new Inkscape file, import the original raster image from above. It's a bit distorted, so set its size to 400x400 pixels (making it square and ensuring that we can draw symmetric circles on top of it). Draw three circles on top of the rings with no fill and stroke widths of 10, 8 and 7 ...

How can I create/export SVG's that contain stroke, stroke-width, stroke-dasharray, and stroke-dashoffset fields? With Inkscape this is really easy: Create stroke: Draw or import your object, select the object, then simply pick a color from the palette while holding Shift or set the stroke directly in the "Fill and Stroke" menu (Shift+Ctrl+F). The ...

Select all the Paths with :tool_selector: Duplicate them (Ctrl+D) Convert them to paths (Ctrl+Alt+C) Create a union from the paths (Ctrl+Shift+ + ) Break Apart the new shape (Ctrl+Shift+k) One of the shape is an exact fill. delete all others. This is a much more fool proof solution for a complex graphic like a map or a drawing with lot of small ...

Duplicate the circle, and select the duplicate circle + one of the bars. Path -> Intersection will result in the bar cut to the circle. Repeat for the other two bars.

Dashed strokes are effectively part stroke and part non-stroke (transparent). 2 possibilities for 2 color stroke: Duplicate the stroke, and group both together. Set the lower stroke in one color, and the upper stroke to dashed style, and another color. Use only 1 stroke, and set the stroke fill to gradient or (custom) pattern.

The bad news: With automatic tracing algorithms alone, you won't be able to get a clean result. There will always be noise. The good news: If you're willing to invest just a bit of effort in manual cleanup, you can get a very decent vectorized reconstruction. This is what I was able to get in roughly 5 minutes: (Click on the image for a high-res version ...

You can definitely achieve this with "Envelope Deformation". I think you were almost there, but ignored a slight rotation in the original. If you rotate the original by roughly 15° (clockwise), then model your envelope and finally rotate your object back, you should be fine. Here's what I got: Steps to follow in Inkscape: Pick a good font. I think for ...

If you trace the bitmap with the Brightness Cutoff algorithm and threshold 0.3, you will get a nice rendering of the black strokes only. This will get most of the job done. Another trace with a higher cutoff will get you the whole head included. You can colour this second trace grey and layer it below the first black trace.

Inkscape cannot embed CMYK color profiles, sorry. Scribus can, though. Here's a workflow that I have successfully used to get a print-production-ready PDF (with the "ISO Coated v2 300% (ECI)" color profile properly embedded). It is taken from a more detailed article on my blog. A word of warning: The workflow involves converting colors manually, so if ...

Just modify the Y value in the toolbar, adding 45 to move the element up. If you don't want to calculate, you can even add + 45 px, inkscape will do the math for you.

Select the object, and then open the Object→Transfrom dialog, and select the Move tab. There you have options for moving horizontally or vertically, in several units. Documentation here.

For example: Mark the object. Open the XML-Editor. Select cy reduce the value by 45 Hit the Button "Set" or how it is called in your language. (assuming your settings are in px).

give your text a stroke convert the stroke to path perform Break Apart path operation, Reduce the opacity to 25(so that the overlapping paths could be identified) Remove unwanted parts(the outer and lighter parts) for complex paths like 'A', 'O' remove the innermost and outermost path. select all the other paths and combine them(perform combine path ...

The handles can't be moved together but you can place them in a position individually which maintains the symmetric look (explained at the bottom) Drawing a symmetric path In this method you will draw half of the path, clone it, flip the clone, place it next to each other and join the 2 paths to form the symmetric shape (the instructions below looks like ...

Duplicate(or copy and paste) the path you want to clip(so that you will have 2 copies of them) use one circle to clip on one path and the other on the other path, this way you can move them independently.No need to group the 2 circles you are going to clip with.
