After trying for an hour now, and again realizing that inkscape is incredibly powerful, but also second least intuitive to use, please someone help ...

I attached the picture of what I want to do: Several items grouped with rectangle-like border What I can do so far:

  • Make an empty rectangle
  • Change color and make the line dashed (way too many points, too close points so far)

PS: You might already have deduced from the example what level of skill we are dealing with here. Also, how do I put in a new line after the picture?

  • Welcome on GD, Maxim. If you want to draw the dashed line, you could simply draw two rectangles with round corners, make them overlap, use Ctrl and + to create an union of the paths, change the border stroke and remove the fill. To align the boxes you can use snapping or alignment. – Paolo Gibellini Jan 27 '16 at 9:29
  • Thanks a lot, I just had a colleague come over and we together with google we came up with the same answer! I will copy yours, so that the question is answered. – Maxim Moloshenko Jan 27 '16 at 9:41
  • @PaoloGibellini I guess the OP would accept that if you were to make it into an answer. For the time being, I added your content to their own. – Vincent Jan 27 '16 at 10:41
  • @MaximMoloshenko: feel free to write a complete answer based on my indications but with your own images, it could be an interesting exercise. – Paolo Gibellini Jan 27 '16 at 17:27

See Paolo Gibellinis comment - the links he provided are really helpful for noobs like myself!
