Take the image of the blue circle below as an example. "Maintaining transparency" means when it is placed in a document, the checkered parts around the circle will remain see-through.
If transparency is NOT maintained, the document bounds of the blue circle file will be visible (the white part). The edges around it will no longer be ...
Linking to external SVG files (but apparently not pdf files) will be possible with Inkscape 1.0 (Release notes). In Inkscape it will still be converted to a raster image, but you can set the DPI on import and even afterwards. The rasterization happens inside Inkscape, so it does not increase the file size.
Also, if viewed in a browser, the linked svg file ...
You can link an Inkscape SVG inside another Inkscape SVG such that the linked file auto-updates in all files using it, like a linked raster image would. This is accomplished using the <image /> tag as follows:
Create an image called dummy.png.
Use the same location as the SVG to link.
Use the same dimensions as linked image will be in the parent SVG.
Try Extension > Arrange > Deep Ungroup. Many of us have used this to simplify otherwise hopeless PDFs for edits when a PDF is the only available vector version of an image.
Ai files are often very similar to PDFs, so it's worth trying. It doesn't release redundant clipping paths, but they can be found as no fill, no stroke elements (select same) after ...
You need to start with InDesign's Data Merge feature where you import the list of names from a CSV file, overlay these onto you certificate design and automatically generate a document with 1000+ pages.
Then, to break this into individual files, there is no direct way to do that, but there are some workarounds as described here.
Place the file as usual with File > Place... (Cmd / Ctrl+D), but before clicking 'Open', check the 'Show Import Options' box. That way, you will have the options to choose the page / artboard you want to place. Simply repeat placing the file to place the other pages / artboards.
Apparently the problem arose because I had commas in the data that I was importing. Illustrator read those as decimals for some reason.
Originally, the data in my XML looked like this:
Scribus 1.4.x (the one mentioned in the wiki article you're linking) has no way to exchange content with InDesign (in the way you're aiming to).
Scribus 1.6 (the next future stable version) will have some ways, but I'm not sure that you will be really able to go back and forth between InDesign and Scribus.
The features are already in the Scribus 1.5.x ...
I checked the size in Inkscape. It is the page size which is 22px x 22px, but the object itself is only 10px x 14px.
When you import the image into Inkscape, that is in fact the correct size. Inkscape isn't deleting anything when you import. There is no "white space". You are merely importing the 10xp x 14px object into a different sized page. Inkscape ...
When you import a vector file into inkscape, it comes in as a group of vector objects. Thus resolution isn't an issue. I do this a lot for graphs from origin and python/matplotlib. This is easy to check - -click on a curve in your graph and select the "edit paths by node" tool (F2) - you'll be able to edit the nodes.
Auto-updating would be nice, but I don'...
Probably it would be more useful if you specified the dimensions of your document instead of naming it "P" and "Q".
1) I'm posting the dimensions here. The A4 paper is 21.0 x 29.7 cm.
2) The gimp's A4 template generates a file of 300 ppi.
3) 300ppi converted to ppcm are: 300/2.54 which does not give us an exact number. 118.11 ppcm.
Unless you're having storage space issues, or it's not displaying properly in Illustrator, you should always try to leave your layer masks intact.
Look at it from a "non destructive editing" perspective. When you apply the layer mask, you're destroying information you may not be able to get back, or may have to redo something you already did.
Yes there is a way.
Save your PSD making sure all the layers are enabled.
In Illustrator click File > Place, select the PSD, click on the page
to place it.
Then click Object > Ungroup.
Each of the layers can then be moved to where you want on the page.
There is no way to rotate different parts of a single layer so you need to import each of your pictures on different layers.
You can easily separate everything in Illustrator to its own layer by selecting the top level layer in the Layers panel and choosing "Release to Layers (Sequence)" from the panel menu:
The created layers will be sub-layers so you ...
Found a solution on my own:
For some reason the PDF contained a clipping mask covering the entire page. Releasing everything from the clipping mask (Select frame, right click, in context menu click "release clipping mask" or similar [I'm on German software, don't know the English wording]) revealed all the content of the document.
Thanks to everybody for ...
To import multiple images as individual layers in Krita (4.0) you can use Layer > Import/Export > Import layer and then in the file chooser dialog box, select multiple images and then press import.
For importing sequential frame use the Import Animation Frames, Also use the animation work-space to check your animation layers in Timeline.
You can cut and paste vector shapes to Photoshop from Illustrator. You have two options available to paste as a vector which is editable with Photoshop's vector tools:
paste as shape layer
paste as path
ADD: see a comment. Smart object also keeps the vector data, but it's not editable in PS. You can open it in Illustrator.
Lets' have the following image ...
Simply put: Photoshop is not a vector editor.
Photoshop merely has some vector editing capabilities in it's raster code base but is not designed to be a full-fledged vector editing application.
If you wish to edit SVG files, a more apprpriate tool would be an actual vector editor such as Illustrator or InkScape. Or.... even a text editor to alter the SVG ...
I don't think there's a direct path from INDD style to anything else, even other Adobe products. They are essentially embedded within the INDD document.
You might have better luck with the XML from a saved .idml document. (Just choose IDML in the InDesign Save As window) You can examine the IDML file and see the styles in XML form...
This image shows ...
Huh... recreate an Indd document with another software?!
"Headache is coming" :-)
That said, you can export Indd stories in RTF format, which carries styles.
Not sure about which properties will be retain. For sure, not all of them, you'll have to experiment...
To export all stories as RTF files, run the ExportAllStories.jsx script from the Scripts panel....
Obviously you do not want to go to Photohop. There the job could have been done faster than writing the question.
One reason to avoid Photoshop is its high cost. You have several good options that doesn't need more money to be invested. Unfortunately sticking in Illustrator isn't one of them. In illustrator it's theoretically possible to play with color ...
