Here's a practical example:
I want to make the two highlighted sections equal in length. I tried playing with "Align and Distribute", but nothing seems to do the job. I was thinking a function that "takes the distance" of one node from the other and applies it to another pair of nodes. Is there anything in inkscape that works like that?
I know a few contrived ways to do it (like inputting coordinates manually or using another object as reference), but I was hoping for an elegant solution.
P.S. I am aware that there are better ways to make an arrow. I am just trying to learn.
