Using the bucket fill tool in Inkscape generates an additional object with dimensions and shape extrapolated from the strokes enclosing an area. This will lead to some visible rounding errors at the new object's border: Here is how to remove this white line between the stroke of the original and the new fill object: Select the fill object. Open the ...

Your problems lie in the inevitable flaws of vectorisers such as the tracer you used. For example, below is a close-up of your original image and, overlayed in red, the best tracing I could come up with Inkscape in a minute: You can see the following: The line is not realised as a line but as an area. While this can be fixed, it might explain some of ...

Just in few minutes you can finish this task. You can download the Inkscape program for free. Then create new sheet, import the bitmap and vectorize it using edge detection (using online tools it is also not difficult, but for safety reasons I would recommend to avoid make it that way). Save it as a file with svg extension, import it to OpenCAD and retry the ...

You should try doing that with the displacement effect. Go to Filters > Filter Editor... then add Effect: Image. Google for a fish-eye displacement map (it will look like a green-red ball) and upload it to the Image filter. Now add displacement effect. Route its first input to a Source Graphic (drag FX's triangle) and the second to the Image. Under ...

Make sure the original file is a vector based file (.eps .ai etc.) and that you're working with a 'compound path'. If it is a pixel based file (.jpg .bitmap .tiff) then it's probably a 'tracing' error. (an algorithm that converts bitmap files to vector) Good luck!

Assuming that you are starting from two paths, one filled in cyan without stroke paint and the other with a black stroke and without fill; and assuming that the filled path is at the bottom, we have a similar situation: You have to perform a few simple steps: Select and duplicate the path with the black stroke while pressing Ctrl-D Maintaining ...

It sounds as if you want to do the following: Duplicate your black path. Select your black path and your cloud. Path → Intersection.

A workaround, if boolean operations is not an option, would be: Export your drawing as png, including undesired white surfaces (but with correct black lines); Open your png image in Gimp (or Photoshop), and use Color > Color to Alpha, select white as the color to become transparent. Export to png.

You cannot a background color at the same time transparent and not transparent. In your example, you have two objects layered one on each other, and a possible background, let's say a, b and bg: When you remove the fill of the top object (b, in the example), you see directly a portion of the other object, and precisely the intersection of a and b: To ...

You might not need steps 1 to 3: Chose the Edit Paths by Nodes tool. Select the top node. Break Path at selected nodes. Path → Break Apart. Select the right path. Path → Reverse.

Just using save as -> png does not apply the transparent background. However, the transparent background is the default when you export: File -> Export Bitmap -> Export Make sure to set the file extention to .png. I chose it to only export the page so it doesn't include any of the rubbish off to the side that I don't want included in my file. ...

In the current version of Inkscape seems not yet possible to embed SVG fonts (see also here a little example). In 0.48 Release Notes: There is a known limitation where the list of glyphs in the dialog are not yet rendered in the selected font, but still in the system font In 0.47 Release Notes there is a more detailed explanation of the limitations: ...

Have you tried switching the mode of your overlay layer? I've been playing with this feature in GIMP lately with amazing results. For example, I took a print of roses and put it over a 3D rendering of a Victorian dress in grey (created in DAZ3D) and it appears to map to the curves and maintains the shading. You may have to do two layers, one for the oceans ...

Blender might be overkill, but it certainly can do this. Import an SVG map. There is an addon bundled with blender which allows you to do this. If SVG not listed in File > Import, you must enable it in File > User Preferences > Addons: Then click File > Import > SVG and select your map (I used this one) Unfortunately the importer isn't perfect, and ...

That feature is called snapping. You can switch it on and off altogether with View → Snap. There also is View → Show/Hide → Snap Controls Bar, which allows you to activate and deactivate specific types of snapping. The one that annoys you sounds like Snap to bounding box corners.

I would use OneNote. It supports pretty much everything you're looking for, including full support for text, math formulas (just press Alt+=), drawing and sketching. OneNote automatically OCRs any handwritten text on the fly and indexes it for searching. It also does this for screen clippings and PDF printouts that you insert into it. You can use any ...

The reason we can't apply a different stroke width to many stock icons such as the ones in the question is that they are not made of strokes but filled objects instead. This can be visualized by switching to path mode in Inkscape: In the icon objects neither stroke nor fill is defined, making them more versatile for web customization. To make the ...
