You need to cut off the inner objects from the outer object, i.e. to make a difference (Path → Difference) of the outer object and inner objects, then you will fill only what you want. To reach it: Move your outer object to the bottom (Object → Lower to Bottom). (Because the difference cut off the higher object from the lower one.) Select it and select one ...

Yes, your problem is caused by having open paths. To avoid this in future when you draw your shapes, make sure you always close them if they are going to be filled. Trying to fix this afterwards can be problematic, and will depend on how you constructed it. To be honest, it may be quicker to redraw it again - or at least redraw the main outline again as one ...

This effect can be achieved by many different ways like masking and etc but I'll use photoshop's Angle Gradient effect to achieve this one. Create circle shape via shape tool. Remove fill and border. Apply Gradient Effect on circle layer. Change gradient to single color via removing all extra color nodes (down pins in gradient editor) Drag opacity controls (...

There are invisible objects in your design. You can see some of them here: After doing another check, selected just one object, and then I did Edit > Select Same > Object Type, I can see many others. Many of these are duplicated several times one on top of the other. To fix you should try to delete all these invisible objects.

It's a common feature request. To get this implemented, you could add your support to one of the linked issues from here: https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inbox/-/issues/2619 https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inbox/-/issues/671 (There are probably more of that type in the tracker)

I just learned Inkscape has a very useful extension called Replace Font, which is found under Extensions --> Text. The extension enables you to search the open document and find and/or replace its fonts, or list all fonts used in it.

You can open the Align and Distribute panel Shift+Ctrl+A, and use the "Remove overlaps" functionality, even though there are no overlaps. Select all the objects In the Align and Distribute panel, set the H and V values the same, say something like 50 for example, and hit the move button. Example:

Note for the future: Inkscape 1.1 will have a 'Slice' Live path effect for this.

Descenders are not "text decorations". There's no "setting", button, or CSS property, which will change the inherent display of glyphs containing descenders. They are part of the artwork used to create a specific glyph. A p is not a p without its descender. A y is a v without its descender. A g is not a g (or it's an a) without its ...

Yes, kind of - there's built-in Color management, built-in print preview and CMYK PDF export included with Inkscape. It requires Scribus to be installed, though, for this to work, and your file to be set up correctly. More details are available at https://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Release_notes/1.0.1#Color-managed_PDF_export_using_Scribus

This is actually super easy in Inkscape. Select the image, then go to Object > Pattern > Object to Pattern. Next, draw your sections on top. Combine them. Select both, the image-pattern-rectangle and the cut lines. Path > Division.

Sure, the preferences setting is Edit > Preferences > Tools > Node: Deleting nodes preserves shape.

Some people use layers for this - you can hide and show layers (e.g. all except the current one) in the layers dialog.

If it's an open type font feature that you want to turn on and off, check the Text and Font dialog, second tab 'Features'.

Disclaimer: I don't know how useful this will be for your particular use case. However, it is possible to add a single point to a shape in Inkscape at an object's midpoint/rotation centre. You could then potentially group both shape and that point, and use that point as the animation centre. But, I'm not sure how practical this would be to use with your ...

So I had the same issue and I found a different solution but I'm not sure if it would work with non square objects. All I did was but the dots on one half of the object, tested to see if that half would succesfully generate, then duplicated all the dots on that half and pasted them onto the other half. I deleted the dots in the middle that were too close to ...

I am a Mac user. My solution was to hold shift at the same time. I.e hold 'shift'+'ctrl' and press space bar whilst moving the cursor around the object.

It's even easier than that. Go under File > Save Template. And then check the default back in the pop-up window. That's it.

If you want to output this as an SVG, there are a couple of problems. Inkscape (and the SVG format) doesn't support conical gradients, or gradients along a stroke. Inkscape does have a gradient mesh which you could use to fake a conical gradient (see Tutorial here), but gradient meshes aren't supported in SVGs yet. Maybe it will be possible in some later SVG ...

The following steps are to edit the SVG in Inkscape. Select the "Draw Bezier Curve" tool (B). Left-click and draw points around the money opening area. With the object completed, select the "Pick colors from image" tool (D) and select the original green shape. Open the "View and edit XML tree" panel on the left side. Move ...

Inkscape has no multi artboard/page support. However, there are some possible workarounds. It's entirely possible to have objects outside the page area. This could be useful if you just need them to be easily accessible. With a bit more effort, it would be possible to change the Document Properties, to hide the Page Border, and change the background colour ...

You can also use the command combine from the path menu as shown: create the two shapes; Put the circle behind the square; select both the shapes use combine from the path menu

Let me play with this: A. Duplicate your sphere B. Duplicate your row and place it a bit down C. And move it a bit to one side, to the left on this example. D Repeat several times. This could be one "isometric" style (It is not really isometric) but you do not have any perspective at all. F. So you could now scale the second row and keep scaling ...

Another approach is to create as many duplicates (Ctrl + D) as there are components. Ctrl+ D places copies exactly on top of each other, saving you the hassle of aligning. Then, for each duplicate, use the select node tool to remove excess portions. For instance, delete all except the left wing in one selection, and all except the right wing in the other ...

Unfortunately the problem here is not with Gimp, it's with GIF. GIF does not support partial transparency. If you must use a GIF file then your only options are no drop shadows, or having a solid background behind the animation so partial transparency is not needed. You could possibly use small dots instead of a gradient to get a less than perfect ...

I agree with @Billy Kerr that Blender is the appropriate tool to use. I was able to get the following effect on Inkscape. I followed these steps: Create a single circle with 2-point radial gradient Add a 100% white background to the circle to eliminate any transparency effects. Align to form a row, then offset to create a plane. Finally, copy a new plane ...

Select both the black shape, and the white shape. Do Path > Difference If you want to see the transparency/checkerboard do File > Document Properties, and select the "Checkerboard Background" option. The object is still transparent whether you switch on the Checkerboard or not. Result

In Gimp you can record settings for most tools and the Crop tool is not exception. On one image, set the crop tool to you liking (size & position), and click the "Save" icon (leftmost), and give a name to your settings. Later on, start the crop tool, click on the image, then click the "Restore" icon (2nd from left) to restore the ...

The SVG has several problems, although "several" might be a slight underestimate! It has a bazillion clipping paths and excessive nested groups generated by your plotting software. I'd suggest these are just totally confusing poor old Inkscape. For example, one of the raster images has 5 levels of nested groups. This is totally excessive. Possible ...

Do not use the text tool for reflowing. Instead: Create a rectangle. Select the rectangle and the text. Text > Flow into Frame. Resize the rectangle to the desired flow region.

Sorry to necro, but I believe duplicating (Ctrl+D) should make a copy and preserve the layers for each object--at least it does for me when I try it in Inkscape 1.0.2

There's no way to connect a path to a filled object like that. You can't connect an open path to a closed path in vector image editing software. It's not possible. Inkscape does have a Diagram Connectors tool, but it won't work for this, because you need to connect the objects using the Diagram Connectors tool itself - which is fairly rudimentary in ...

If your text happens to put on a circle, you can just simple rotate the circle:

I was about to post an image that explains my problem but just now I have checked and the problem has been fixed somehow. I just played with settings on the horizontal menu and in "Preferences". At first, nothing changed and I lost hope but when I checked now it works as expected. I must have tweaked some settings for the problem to appear. Anyway, ...

No to both of your questions. Inkscape can't edit/crop raster images at all. It's a vector image editor, so it's no use for what you want. GIMP has no template functionality as such, other than regular XCF (GIMP document) files, but these can't "do" anything. GIMP has no macro recording capabilities, although it can be scripted using ScriptFu or ...

No. Inkscape is an SVG editor for on-screen vector graphics. It's RGB only. However you can export a design as a PDF from Inkscape, and then manually change the colours to CMYK using Scribus, which is also free and open source.

It might have been the "object to path" after you converted your text to a path. What you ended up with was your stroke being outlined into a shape, instead of a single-line path, on the bold letters. Have you tried recreating the text and converting it to a path from scratch? That will probably be the easiest way to fix this. If you don't have the ...
