Help Using Inkscape / Re: Inkspace svg file not working on cricut?
« Last post by brynn on November 21, 2017, 02:13:24 AM »
Welcome to the forum!

The same issue?  After re-reading this topic, it doesn't sound like any particular issue has been found.  The op hasn't ever been back.  If you mean the title, "not working"  could mean a million different things, and is not helpful to anyone.

The error message you reported sounds like it must be from cricut?  Unfortunately, that doesn't help us figure out what's happening in Inkscape.

If you could share the SVG file, we could look at it, to try and find the problem.  I haven't heard of any problems with Trace Bitmap in 0.92.  And I don't know of any differences between 0.91 and 0.92 that should be causing this.  That doesn't mean there aren't any.  But we can't sort anything out without seeing an SVG file which is causing the problem.

I have the same issue with the 92 version of Inkscape, the 91 version worked fine.  I convert a PNG file using the path Tracebit map feature, then I save the file as a standard svg.  The 92 verision is creating files that give the following error message when trying to upload
"The uploaded SVG contained the following items that are not supported: Unsupported image type".  I went back to the 91 version of Inkscape to resolve the issue.

It's relatively new.  Since I don't use Outline view very often....well, it's a small miracle I remembered at all, haha!  But I had seen it mentioned in the release notes of a new version, in the last couple of years.  If I recall, you use an older version, so  you might not have it.

Oh, that reminds me.  On my other forum, I removed the OS and Browser identification, and added 2 new items to the profile for Inkscape version and OS.  I didn't think I would continue with it, because I didn't think new members would find it.  But I've been surprised, and more than half of them do - I might guess 3/4.  Maybe I'll just do that right now.  You'll see there's a nice little option for it, which makes it look like a signature.  (Oops...this forum needs an upgrade anyway, so I'll start on it shortly  :-$)

Nice one!  I didn't know that was an option.   :D

Ah-HA!!!

Inkscape Preferences > Bitmaps > Render > Image in Outline Mode

Oh, I didn't realize you were manually tracing raster images.  No I don't think there is any way to see the imported raster images and outlines at the same time.

Newbies can learn!

Although.....somewhere in the back of my head,  a little bell is ringing....  Did I hear something about this....?  Oh, my old brain!  Let me give it some thought, and try to bring it into focus.  There might be something.

Ok slight problem LOL

When I move into outline view, the raster graphics disappears and only a box with its outline appears. But at least I can see the vector lines I set to a stroke of .001 pt. Of course te whole point of seeing the vector lines is to line up the raster graphics for etching.

Any way I can view both the raster graphic content and the vector lines no matter how thin I set the stroke to?

Yes I know I can use duplicate layers, and I have been. But you have to understand some of my younger students are total newbies!

It WORKED!

From the top menu: View > Display Mode > Outline to show all your vector lines no matter their stroke width!

See attached, screenshot, thanks!  :clap1: :ur: :ty1:

Oh yes, outline view is a good solution!  I always forget about that, because I rarely use it.

The only other thing would be draw everything out.  And then right before you send to the cutter, select all, change stroke width.

Not very detailed.

If you're interested, here is the .dxf file we're importing into Inkscape, setting the vector lines to .001 pt, the lines will disappear. This is a small bookmark project

Also if interested, here is the public CAD doc I used to make it:

Thank you, I will try your suggestion!
