This tutorial will demonstrate various tips and tricks that users have learned through the use of Inkscape and some “hidden” features that can help you speed up production tasks. Radial placement with Tile Clones It's easy to see how to use the Tile Clones dialog for rectangular grids and patterns. But what if you need radial placement, where objects share a common center of rotation?
This document describes the default keyboard and mouse shortcuts of Inkscape, corresponding to the share/keys/default.xml file in Inkscape distribution. Most (but not all) of these keys are configurable by the user; see the default.xml file for details on how to do that. Unless noted otherwise, keypad keys (such as arrows, Home, End, +, -, digits) are supposed to work the same as corresponding regular keys.
This tutorial covers the four shape tools: Rectangle, Ellipse, Star, and Spiral. We will demonstrate the capabilities of Inkscape shapes and show examples of how and when they could be used. Use Ctrl+Arrows , mousewheel , or middle button drag to scroll the page down. For basics of object creation, selection, and transformation, see the Basic tutorial in Help > Tutorials . Inkscape has four versatile shape tools , each tool capable of creating and editing its own type of shapes. A shape is an object which you can modify in ways unique to this shape type, using draggable handles and numeric parameters that determine the shape's appearance.
One of the features in Inkscape is a tool for tracing a bitmap image into a <path> element for your SVG drawing. These short notes should help you become acquainted with how it works. Currently Inkscape employs the Potrace bitmap tracing engine ( potrace.sourceforge.net ) by Peter Selinger. In the future we expect to allow alternate tracing programs; for now, however, this fine tool is more than sufficient for our needs. Keep in mind that the Tracer's purpose is not to reproduce an exact duplicate of the original image; nor is it intended to produce a final product. No autotracer can do that.
