The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

How to Add a Signature to Your Messages (also Choose an Avatar)

Hi Friends,
Having your various cutting hardware, Inkscape version(s), and other software that you use with your projects, showing in your signature, will help us to help you. 

You're also welcome to include links to your own website or blog or gallery where you display your finished products, in the signature.  (You can also place a link to your website or blog in your forum profile.)

Here's how to create your own signature:

1 -- Click the "Profile" tab in the main navigation menu, that runs across every page, near the top.
2 -- In the dropdown menu under "Modify Profile" click "Forum Profile".
3 -- Near the bottom of that page, you'll see a text editor that looks just like the editor for posting messages in the forum.

So you can type whatever info you want in there.  Remember that this signature will appear below every single message you post.

There are some limitations in how much info you can put in a signature.

Maximum number of characters = 1000
Max number of lines = 10
Max font size = 15
Max number of smileys = 3
Max number of images = 2
Max width of images = 800
Max height of images - 100

If you understand and can use BBCode, you can use all the same tags as in regular messages.

Just below the signature area, you can see the 2 fields where you can enter the name and web address (URL) of your website, forum or blog.

At the top of that page is where you can set up an avatar for yourself.  This is the small image that appears to the left of each message you post.  You can choose from the selection we offer, by ticking "Choose avatar from gallery" on the left.  Then to the right, when you click on any category name except "(no pic)" you can browse through all the options.

Or if you have your own avatar, you're welcome to upload it.  Just tick "Upload an avatar".  Then click "Browse" button.

And you're welcome to fill in any of the other information you see there.  I always enjoy knowing what part of the world people live in (the "Location" field).  But it's all entirely optional!  Even though it would be helpful for us to be able to see your system info, it's not required that you make a signature.

If you should have any problems or questions about this, please feel free to post your question here.

All best,
