I just freshly installed Inkscape 0.92 and when I draw an object like a rectangle, the stroke is invisible even though the settings seem to be correct:

enter image description here

As can be seen in the image, there is no stroke, even though opacity is set to 100% for stroke. The stroke also has width. In fact, if I change the wide the dashed marquee expands and contracts, but still no stroke is shown.

The alpha channel is all the way down.

Alpha controls basically the same thing as opacity, but it is for that color specifically. Set it all the way up to have the stroke shown.

  • Yep, change your RGBA to 000000FF. The last two digits should be FF for any solid colour
