comment How do I create a bevel effect on a complex object in Inkscape?
One other thing that I've noticed is difficult with the Inskcape filters is that when you apply two, they seem to impact each other. I found that when I first applied a drop shadow, then applied a bevel, the drop shadow would disappear. And, as you say, the interface makes it very difficult to determine what exactly is happening.

@Scott: Who said anything about asking about a "1 button or 1 menu item selection". This is the second time you've told me that, and frankly, it's a little tedious that you keep making that assumption. Let me be clear for hopefully the last time: I am willing to do whatever it takes, no matter how complicated, I am just looking for guidance on how. What's wrong for looking for guidance? So next time you want to offer this tired and misplaced advice, save it for someone for whom it actually might have relevance.

Changed example image to one that is a more clear example of what I mean. Altered text accordingly.

@Scott: Fair enough. I suppose there are lots of people looking for shortcuts. But I assure you, I'm willing to do what it takes, I'm just not sure how to get there. All I mean by "global" is that I have an existing colour layer, so I think that going in with, say, some kind of brush and making touch ups runs the risk of some sections being inconsistent with others, unless I repaint the whole thing, which squashes the work already done.

Clarified that it's not just looking for one filter.

@Scott: Where does it say I'm looking for a shortcut? In both questions, nothing I have said excludes the possibility of multiple layers of technique, or of time and effort. The key difference is that in this question I am looking for something with global effects across an entire image, as opposed to spot specific effects that one might achieve with a specific brush or localized technique. The only implication of looking for a shortcut came with your assumptions based on the mention of the term "filter".
