I use Inkscape to create icons. And I see that Font Awesome talks about their icons being pixel perfect. I like the idea and always tried to do the same with the default canvas which is A4. But when I have to use it on a 48px or 64px ( etc ) icon templates ( built-in in Inkscape ) I see that pixel perfect is no longer valid with the icon. ie, when I try to fit the icon in the 64x64 px template it loses the pixel perfection it had while I drew it in an A4 sized canvas.

What is your method of avoiding this ? I find it hard to generate ideas on a 48x48 or 64x64 px canvas. It is easier to try different things until we reach the final product when we have space on the canvas.

    To make things pixel perfect, use the final canvas size that you're going to export from the start Jul 4, 2020 at 13:48
