I would like to ask for a general advice on how to use Inkscape to create a "sprite sheet" of letters and numbers.
I am developing a Scrabble-like word game and initially was planning to display the letters and values on the letter tiles programmatically:
Unfortunately, while it seemed to work at the emulator (see above) - it fails on real devices (see below):
So my new plan is to create an SVG file in Inkscape and then export it as PNG files (Android wants different resolutions of asset images for different classes of devices)...
For this I have enabled grid 15x15 in Inkscape Document Properties:
and have toggled the Snap bounding box corners.
I have 2 kind of tiles - the small tiles at the game board are 45x45 (here and further - for the drawable-mdpi class of devices) and the big tiles are being dragged and should be 128x128.
That is why I have set the grid to 15x15 when creating small tiles: I'd like to put a letter in the 30x30 cell and its value in the 15x15 cell (at the right and below the letter).
My question is: how to approach this problem in Inkscape in the most effective way and so that I can alway return to the SVG file and adjust it?
I have created 2 text strings - "ABCDEFG...XYZ" and "12345678910":
But how to split and resize them (without distorting the font)?
I have tried selecting in the menu Path - Break Apart and also Object - Ungroup - but there is no effect.
(I was hoping this would split the text strings into letters and I would drag them around in my grid and also resize them).
