How do I, for instance, set the width of all selected objects to the same value in one go?

When I select several objects and then set the width, I of course change the width of the entire selection. How do I go about setting the individual widths of all selected objects in one go?


You can set the width of one object, and then copy that object (Ctrl-C).

Select all other objects, then execute Edit -> Paste Size -> Paste Width Separately.

This works for object size only. For other properties you may use other tools such as fill & stroke, transform, arrange,

    You can do something similar with path effects as well. Oct 5 '16 at 16:36
  • I often use paste style but had completely forgotten about paste width! Thanks.
