One (Illustrator) method... With the art you have... Select all Grab the Shape Builder Tool Hold Down the Option/Alt key and click-drag across the lines outside the rectangle to remove them (After question edit) -- This will work for all your shapes. Just select all and then Option-Click-Drag with Shape Builder to remove what you don't want. Another (...

In Inkscape, as long as the curved parallel lines are a compound path, and the squiggly shapes are another compound path on top, then you can use the Path > Cut Path boolean operation. However the operation will consume the upper path, so if you want to keep it, copy it before you do the Cut Path, then Paste in Place after you've done it. Example, before (...

You have this: Select all, apply Pathfinder panel's Outline. You get this: Every path is split at every crossing, all colors are removed and all is grouped. Ungroup, select the wanted parts and copy them to the clipboard to keep them in safe. Select all, Delete, Paste in Place the content from the clipboard and insert some stroke color and thickness to get ...

"Join" does not mean "merge" or "combine". Join refers to connecting two nodes with a path between them. Typically you can't "merge" two nodes into one. I'm not an Inkscape user, but in most apps, you want to join the two nodes, then delete one of the nodes (retaining the path) if the goal is a single node. In your ...

Had the image been drawn with a drop-shadow filter applied, you could have removed it. To do that you'd select the chess piece, then from the filters menu and choose Remove Filters. That would remove all the filters. Unfortunately you don't really have an SVG drawing at all. What you have is a raster image of the chess piece wrapped in an SVG file. I.e. <...

The only case when I see this behaviour while using Inkscape is when you have already entered some text, which you then grab and stretch horizontally. The text will flip once it moves beyond the midpoint of the textbox.

Let's start with this... Notice that shapes used for trimming are in front of objects that need to be trimmed. Select All then apply Pathfinder / Outline. Ungroup everything. Select any line that doesn't have any stroke (those are the lines outside of trimming areas). Then select objects with same stroke color and delete them. Now, we are left with ALMOST ...

First of all, there appears to be a bug in Inkscape 1.0 which causes the pattern to be much larger than the one created. Hopefully they'll fix it in the next release. The bug doesn't exist in 0.92.3 (2405546, 2018-03-11) - I tested it in both versions. Anyway, here's a workaround Draw a horizontal line (don't draw it at an angle or the pattern won't work ...

This is a visually ok method My blue shape which has holes An orange stroke is added. Half of the width of the stroke is outside the blue shape. The same after applying Path > Stroke to Path, Ungroup and moving the parts apart Warning: Do not move the parts after ungrouping. It's very difficult to align them again. I moved them apart only to show ...

Inkscape has some color modifying filters and extensions but I guess nothing creates what you want. There's simply no way to control all items in a complex vector drawing simultaneously to search a good total effect. The idea fits much better to bitmap images. In Photoshop, GIMP and many other bitmap image editors you can twist color curves and apply ...

Try changing the text to paths in Inkscape. I just tried it and it seems to work. I'm not entirely sure why, but perhaps Krita has some different way of rendering text point sizes in an SVG, since converting to paths removes all references to point sizes. Note that converting text to paths is also an easy way to solve the problem of text disappearing when ...

I guess your path is more complex than you assume. You didn't open the path between adjacent nodes. Put option Show Path Outline =ON in the info panel or insert temporarily a stroke. Show outline happens if the node tool is selected. There's also extension Visualize Path > Node numbers to show the order. Use it only as preview. If this guess was right and ...

You can not create nonmanifold geometry. One can not just merge any node with any other node. You can only merge the endpoints or adjacent nodes together. The modeling paradigm of 2D vector drawing applications only allows you to do the allmost minimal set of that make sense for the rendering engine. The fact that you wish to do something is irrelevant for ...
