I am importing a figure with multiple text objects in inkscape (e.g. graph). I sometimes need to change the overall width of the figure to match publishers requirements (e.g. single column figure cannot be over 8 cm wide). Therefore, I select everything and scale the width. This leaves text distorted, but I need to maintain the text aspect ratio. How can I now un-stretch the text afterwards to not look distorted?
The only way I found so far, was to select each text object, press Ctrl+Shift+X to bring up the XML editor, find the
scale attribute of the distorted node and remove it. However, this is
cumbersome (have to do it on all text nodes manually) and
moves the text object around.
