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 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 ...

I too get a mismatch between a pattern's appearance in Inkscape and in pdf. As a workaround I convert the pattern to objects ( Object -> Pattern -> Pattern to objects or Shift+Alt+I) then what you see on screen is what gets output to pdf. That said, any transformations of the pattern beforehand make the operation hit or miss. E.g. If I fill a square with ...

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 ...

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'); ...

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 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.

If you want to trace the outside boundary of your svg, all element must be path: ungroup all and convert to path, but in your svg there are linked offset and nested group, so: first convert to path (select all and Shift+Ctrl+C or Path > Object to path) and then Ungroup all (select all and Shift+Ctrl+G) repeatedly until inkscape say "no groups to ungroup" ...

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 ...

You can and probably should cut the image up into tiles. This allows your gane to load each segment separately into the graphics cards memory. But as a side effect it makes texturing easier for you. PS before you go on make sure your game engine wont choke on your texture size. Many gfx systems have a 8k texture limit. (altough it could have several of ...

I am not an expert on game developement. But an image 28712x27744 as 8 bit RGB tif is about 2.2 Gigabytes in Photoshop. I created a test image. On the Mac Os it is 2.4 G on the disk. I was able to open it in Gimp but it took a while. The image crashed the filter plug-in I tried to use. I think GIMP has issues with large file sizes. You might try to find ...

In Inkscape, a line doesn't really have a concept of a fill vs stroke. The line itself is the stroke. Changing its stroke color changes the whole line, because the whole thins is just stroke. Changing it's fill does nothing. It sounds like what you are trying to do is draw a line and create the outside edges of it like a border. To do this, you need to ...

XML editor is good way to select an object. Show XML editor and select an object underneath of a layer node.

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: ...

As your objects are identical you should consider making clones for your duplicates. Make your object (the parent) Duplicate as required: Edit - Clone - Create Clone (Alt+D) Scale or otherwise redefine your parent object and watch the children follow suit. The advantage of this approach is that you don't have to explicitly select all of the instances - ...
