To avoid the conflation problem, I'd construct it as follows. Also a construction like this is simple, and should avoid any browser rendering issues, or the need for a mask. With the Bézier tool, draw a rough shape over the area you wish to fill with the gradient, making sure it overlaps the black areas, and apply the gradient to it. Reduce the object ...

Let's assume there's a good reason why the triangles are not drawn from the start to their wanted positions. In that case you can rotate them manually. Point snapping makes it exact. At first drag the triangles so that the leftmost bottom corners snap. Drag from the top ruler a horizontal guide to the same point: Click with the normal selection tool a ...

Thanks, @Paolo Gibellini for the good advice! I probably choose a cumbersome approach, but I find it good for practising and kinda rewarding: I create a donut, by creating two overlapping circles and Path Subtracting them. I create a straight line starting in the middle and piercing the circle. This is faced up at point 0 degrees. I duplicate and rotate ...

In Inkscape 1.1 there's no need to use that extension. You can use the Perspective/Envelope LPE instead. Note that for this to work on text, it needs to be converted to outlines. Make sure your artwork is grouped and the group is selected Do Path > Path Effects, and click the + icon in the Path Effects panel to add a new path effect, search for "...

I had the same question and downloaded the Inkscape source from https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inkscape in order to understand the internal mechanisms. A full-text search for R12 and R14 revealed that these formats are exported using Inkscape extensions, dxf12_outlines and dxf_outlines, respectively (output shortened): [~/source/inkscape]$ grep R12 po/de.po -C ...

If you hold down the Shift and Alt keys as well as hold down the life mouse button, you can draw over the object you want to select.

In that style of calligraphy you need to alter the pen pressure depending on the direction of the pen. Down strokes are heavy, and up strokes are light. Set the Calligraphy Pen preset to No Preset, and use the settings as shown below. If you feel the Mass setting is too heavy, feel free to adjust it a bit lower. The Mass setting will help smooth out your ...

I found the same problem. But I also find out the solution as well. What I do is to align the dots (on which I will use the extension) perfectly to the borderline using the alignment tool. Previously my dots didn't align with the rectangle border perfectly.

I'd use the dialog for arranging objects on a circle. So, the procedure would be to: type each letter as a single one-letter text, or type them into a long text and use an extension (Extensions > Text > Split... Letters) to split them up select all of them, in the correct order open Object > Arrange > Polar coordinates (or in Inkscape 1.2: ...

As layers in Inkscape are just SVG groups, your Inkscape layers should theoretically be available as separate groups in Illustrator. While Inkscape supports importing Illustrator files with layers, Illustrator does not support Inkscape files with layers. If you optimize your files on exporting from Inkscape, layer groups may be lost, depending on the ...

If you have a path that looks like this: You can fill the area below it by defining the area you'd like to fill. I would suggest using the pen tool, click on one of the end points to continue the path. (Notice the slash icon that appears below the pen cursor.) You can hold shift to constrain the lines you're adding to right angles, and click to draw the ...

Inkscape: If it's a path you can use it to divide a rectangle to two parts. The function is Division in the Path menu. Use a copy because the path vanishes. No guarantee because I cannot be sure if your curve is a path. It can be a group which contains many different parts. Division needs a single path and the rectangle or a closed path below to be ...

In Inkscape, go to File > Document Properties, and click on the Colour tab. From the Available Colour Profiles dropdown, choose the sRGB colour profile. Then export the PNG. This will ensure the image is saved with the correct colour profile. This colour profile is the one used for colour reproduction on the web, and most software can recognise it. Now ...

That was most likely drawn entirely by hand. The advent of using computers in graphic design didn't really happen until the late 1980s. But yes, something similar can be done in Inkscape by applying Offset path effects to duplicates repeatedly For example

Type one letter, set the text alignment to centred. Click twice on the text box to show rotation handles, and drag the rotation centre to the middle of the circle. Use Snapping to Object Rotation Centres to get accuracy. Then duplicate and do a rotate transform, and repeat around the circle centre. Note that 10 degree angle increments will give you 36 ...

You can measure a segment with the Measurement tool - essentially a ruler - which is at the bottom of the toolbox. Of course, you can also access it using it's keyboard shortcut, the M key. Enable snapping, and snap to cusp nodes. Click and drag to measure the segment. Divide the segment length you want to scale it to by the measured segment length, and ...
