I am drawing a landscape in Inkscape and so far i have drawn, mountains, a river and several trees. The trees are groups of many subobjects, like branches and leaves. Since I copied the tree several times, I now have maybe like 1 or 2 thousand objects.
I am using a laptop with Dual Core processor and 4 GB RAM, but 2 of those are dedicated to the graphics card, so 2 left for general processing.
Is there a way or trick on how to lover the number of objects(without loosing quality) so that I can draw without Inkscape stuck for few moments, sometimes, minutes?
Should I just use some of those, "Difference" or "Union"?
