Okay, fine. I've reopened this. I still think it's merely a duplicate of this question though: How can I quickly turn all objects of a layer to independent layers in Illustrator? Please read the question.. "how to split objects to layers". The duplicate link answers that question directly. Sure, it's not using a script, because you don't need any ...

It's caused by having overlapping edges of strokes which causes conflation artefacts. Basically in this case, the effect is like losing the anti-aliasing a bit. This is a common issue with vectors, and not specifically an Inkscape issue. Conflation can also be caused by having two edges of a shape butting up against each other, which can cause a thin gap to ...

This has nothing to do with Inkscape, but with how anti-aliasing and SVG rendering in general works. When you overlap multiple lines on top of each other, you also add more and more anti-aliased half-transparent pixels, making them less and less transparent. Here is a simple line with anti-aliasing and then the same line duplicated over and over. Notice how ...

I will separate my answer into several parts. You are asking about the quality of the glow. But in the workflow you describe, it seems that you are rasterizing not only the glow but also the shapes that are generating it. Depending on the process, the colors, the intended output, etc, you can, not only lose the ability to edit your main shape, but also have ...

I can't comment on the overall workflow without a full understanding of it... which I'm not going to get via small comments here. My point in my comment was... I, myself, tend to hesitate to mix applications merely because one aspect of one design is taking time to render. It seems to me that you are creating more work merely because AI can be slow to render....

An easy method.... Draw your circles... Select all the circles ... Run the MetaBall Script... (which is a simple javascript file, not a plugin. And it's free) Then simply delete what you don't want and alter any coloring and stacking order as necessary. Took me maybe 30 seconds.. drawing the circles took longer than creating the connectors. The script ...

It's possible to get fairly accurate tangential curves to circles using some 45° rotated squares as guides, i.e. squares that are the same size as the radius of each circle, rotated around the circles' centres using the Rotate tool, and then drawing a path with the Pen tool, making sure that the bézier handles of the curve snap to the corners of the squares. ...

One easy method to get symmetric bridges with no 3rd party plugins: Draw a line between the centers of the circles. Use the Width Tool to make the bridge have good looking width variation. You must insert width adjustment handles at both ends, in the midway between the circles and at about in the midpoints of the circle radiuses. Learn from the User's Guide ...

Try Export As or Save As just to see if you'll get a more specific error. This happened to me and when I tried Save AS > PDF I got "Objects land out of document bounds". To resolve, I had to start a new document and I added more large artboards until Illustrator switched to "Large sized canvas" mode. https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/...

Paste it to Photoshop and apply Filter > Noise > Median: If it must be vector trace it.

Unfortunately, your assumption is wrong. Sorry. Inkscape is not just a vector image editor, it's an SVG editor. SVGs are a kind of XML, basically just code. Some SVG shapes are not actually paths - they're SVG elements like this: <rect x="21.1" y="54.6" width="34.3" height="18.6"/> <circle cx="38.2" ...
