The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, 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. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Help: Introduction

Welcome to Inkscape for Cutting Design, a Simple Machines Forum (SMF)!

SMF is an extremely flexible software package that gives forum administrators the ability to tailor their forum to their desires through a large collection of built-in features, additional themes, and custom modifications. As such, it allows for great variance in look and functionality between SMF forums. There are, however, a number of features that are common to all SMF forums, which this help section addresses.

First, descriptions and examples of the overall forum structure and layout are provided. Instructions on how to move from guest status to member status by registering and logging in are also given, as guests may not be permitted to access, post, or even read certain boards or topics. Once registered and logged in, a member is then instructed how to modify their profile; post or reply to topics, polls, and events; quote, modify, or delete a post; use message icons, smileys, and Bulletin Board Code; setup notifications; work with attachments; and read or send personal messages. A section on both basic and advanced searching is also provided.
