comment Fitting text into a Letter using inkscape?
@Hannah Only the words flow, not the letters, so if the word is too long to fit inside the letter shape you probably won't see it at all.

comment Is there an easy way (a pattern or plugin) to create urban maps? Inkscape preferred
Have you tried playing with the Path > Trace bitmap feature in Inkscape, using a snapshot of an urban scene as your starting image. It can create some large paths which are fiddly to edit afterwards, and maybe you want a 'randomly generated' output anyway. But it could be a starting point to creating something in SVG. There are two options - single path or stacked multiple paths, and you can choose number of paths and if you want colours or grays etc.

@Hannah - I think what might be happening is that when you turn text into a path it creates a group, even if there's only one letter. After turning text into a path, ungroup the letter, then select the letter path and the text and flow into frame.

comment Inkscape 0.48: stacked objects: selecting z-order 1 object and hidden z-order 3 object simultaneously
I sometimes do this sort of thing by moving the objects off the top of each other so they don't overlap (so much) then select the things I want. Then Ctrl+Z to undo the movements I just did. The objects I selected remain selected throughout the undo.
