The gap you see is due to an imperfect rendering by Inkscape and not necessarily a problem depending on how you export or use your SVG (as long as you cut precisely). The shadows however will likely cause problems, when cut up (which is the only way I can think of to make them right). Here is my solution to this. As an example, I cut up a plain bar, because ...

I am not an Inkscape user. However, I would guess that perhaps the files are a bit too complex. Opening one of the files in Illustrator CS6 I find a great deal of unnecessary objects - which appear to be very large type glyphs (all that black in the image below) - in addition to at least 9 nested groups. Once I delete all those unnecessary objects I'm ...

I found "icons.svg" ("shared" dir of installed app) which are all icons on one SVG canvas. Bad that I can't use this svg (need PNGs, cannot easy make them).

Starting from a bunch of lines, you can combine them with Ctrl+K (refer to Path menu): Then you have to put the second path in the desired position: Now, you can cut the path with Ctrl+Alt+/: Here come the boring part: each line is cutted in two or more segments. You have to select them one by one (I have colored the stroke while selecting, just to ...

PDF,as SVG files, actually, don have the concept of "layers". In SVG files there are groups of objects - Groups are meant to be more flexible than layers - and what Inkscape calls "Layer" is rather an UX choice - if you check the generated SVG file, you have a group there, not distinguishable, but for specific inkscape metadata, from a group created by ...

When things aren't show up (like shapes) there are a few things that can be causing that apart from colors and stroke. Go to Objects - >Fill & Stroke - > Fill tab and check to see if the fill is at 100%. Also go to Layers and check if layer opacity is at 100%

Unlike in Gimp or other applications there is a strict separation of font family vs. font style in SVG, and in Inkscape. Therefore we will be presented the font family only from selection in the top panel. To change the font style (as they were defined with the installed font) we can either use the default style icons from the tool panel, or adjust it using ...

Both ...

You can do it in the following steps: Make full ellipses (e.g. 3 ellipses) Take the complement for the green and red ellipses (Ctrl -). It will automatically produce a path. Break apart the result and delete the bottom part if you don't need it (Ctrl Shift K). Take the union (Ctrl *)

In Illustrator I would Knife Tool the large artery path to isolate the part I want: However in Inkscape I don't believe a Knife Tool exists.

I wouldnt use Inkscape I would use a code editor in this instance. You can open the SVG file and you could pullout and test the paths, in this case: <path xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" id="path351" fill="#ED5D40" d="M357.395,214.812c-2.646-3.05-6.138-7.847-10.553-8.137c-1.53-0.1-3.363,0.666-4.316,1.871 ...
