if it is an gradient overlay convert it into shape and in the fill option of the shape give your desired gradient
You can simply use a dashed stroke: You can even apply multiple strokes with different offsets to a single live text object using the appearance panel. You can add effects (such as Offset Path in this case, so that the strokes are outset from the text) to a specific stroke by selecting that stroke and using the "fx" button at the bottom of the appearance ...
No, Inkscape does not have a tool with the ability to detect the shape of a free-drawn shape and convert it to a vector version of that shape. There is however, a Wishlist item in the Inkscape bug tracker from 2011 asking for this feature: https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/714745
Once you've converted the text to an outline, you could user object>path>offset path to add one or more offset versions (offset path will take positive and negative values) and then just chop the resulting paths up by deleting sections of them. It's a bit of work, but it will get you the effect that you are looking for. Alternatively, if you don't want to ...
I was running into the same issue. I solved it by allowing all shapes to be loaded within the shapes. Right after that I was able to define my shape.
Try the pst-3dplot package available for example in Texlive. Oh look, they've got what you want as an example right in the manual. If you want to have perspectivity, try pst-solides3d instead. Just in case you don't know how to handle this all by yourself, you can use this link to access one such example. The code is very easy to understand.
The shape you are trying to duplicate is difficult to draw. It is a mathematical function called a sine wave. I use a different version of Illustrator but the technique to draw one is the same or very similar. Things in Adobe programs migrate from menu to menu so I'll have to tell you what to do by name. Draw a line. Select it. Apply "Zig-Zag" effect. ...
From the Pathfinder panel menu you can select Release Compound Shape which will "uncombine" your shapes back to their original state. You can also select Expand Compound Shape to flatten the result to a single shape. Illustrator Help / Combine Objects Using Compound Shapes
I found an even easier way: Turn on snap to cusp nodes and snap to object centers. Grab vertical guide. Snap star center to vertical guide. Rotate until the top node of star snaps to vertical guide. It should be perfectly aligned now.
Hum. I am afraid that is an incorrect aproach, regardless if the tutorial says it is a perfect spiral. The error is that that figure has a "Jump" in the diameter every half circle. A "perfect" spiral has a smooth continous progressive increment in diameter. Your specific model is an Archimedean spiral. That can be minimimized using smaller fractions, ...
Given what you've tried it sounds like its a very small spiral. Scale it up, position them, then scale it back down.
You should select both shapes and go to menu: Layer -> Paths -> Join And two shapes will be joined.
I suggest following workflow: make a white thin lined stroke and start drawing polygons edges with line tool. Make sure you have smart guides on but no align guides. make a small area of polygon edges. select all and switch to live paint bucket tool hide edge color alt click in middle of polygon to pick color click in polygon to color it Once you have done ...
To color in the individual triangles which seems to be your goal, then you can use the Live Paint Bucket (K) You can then Expand it to have your individual polygons
Not 100% sure what you mean by thick from bottom and thin from top like a tower but I'm assuming you want to achieve either one of these: Case 1: Draw a rectangle, let's say 300x200px with a stroke of 10px. Select the rectangle and in the menu choose "Path" > "Convert stroke to path" (or hit Ctrl+Alt+C). Now enter the "Edit paths by nodes" mode (...
I assumed that would be a continuous path moving from one point to the next (as you mentioned stitching) but it looks like they are actually just a bunch of squares and triangles, rotated around a common center. In which case... Draw a sqaure: Use a transform effect (Effect → Distort & Transform → Transform... ) with a rotation and a number of ...
There are several ways around it. 1) Inside layers panel, create new layer on top of the layer with your rectangle (which is going to be a backgdound, I presume) and then lock the layer containing the rectangle you wish to "avoid". 2) While your rectangle is selected press Ctrl + 2 (not F2, but number 2) this will "lock" anything you have selected ...
FYI, here's another way to create a triangle with one curved side, using the polygon tool and pen tool in Photoshop. 1-using the polygon tool, create an object with 3 sides 2-Rotate using Image > Image Rotation > 90 degrees Clockwise. Drag a vertical guide rule to align with the bottom triangle point (this helps define the triangle's vertical center). With ...
i made it with the regular pen tool all you need to make is to make a new layer over the image the lower the opacity of the new layer the choose the pen tool and make sure that it has been set for a " shape " not a path then start from the corner of any straight line then move towards the next corner .. when you want to close the shape and make the ...
I suggest you watch this tutorial and all your (or most of) your problems with Pen Tool. It's a really powerful tool but requires some practice and time to master it. Have fun! Hope this helps.
This has to do with the algorithm that InkScape and other graphics programs use to create gradients, namely (pseudo-code): var gradient =  var firstColor, secondColor, steps for i in range(steps): p = i/steps R = firstColor.R * p + secondColor.R * (1 - p) G = firstColor.G * p + secondColor.G * (1 - p) B = firstColor.B * p + secondColor.B * (1 - p) ...
Start by drawing a circle using the Circle tool, whilst holding down Ctrl Turn on "Snap to object centre" & "Snap to rotation centre" and create guides that snap to the centre of the circle With the circle tool and circle still selected, you can calculate the arc length you desire by expressing it as a percentage fraction X 360. i.e. (25/100)*360 ...
Marking the status of a list-item is definetly best with using simplest possible solutions, colors are the best in my opinion for that. As for the alternatives you can always go for some icons related to the current state of the particular item. There are many ready-to-use icons such as Flaticon or Freepik and many more if you use your search-engine ...
Select the artboard tool (Shift+O) and then click the small "x" in the top right corner of the extra artboard. Alternatively, use the Artboard Panel and select the stray artboard and delte from there.
