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.

SCAL 3 - creating custom score lines
« on: October 22, 2012, 03:41:24 AM »
HI all - not sure is this is the right place to put this

 Quick video to answer a query on how to draw a line in SCAL3 and how to customise the dashes for a score line in a project

 http://youtu.be/SXpx3r7rvzA

 there is probably an easier way to do it if so let me know

 Thanks
 Pandora :)

Pandora, I've used SCAL since SCAL1 and never saw this.  Maybe it wasn't available in SCAL1 but I checked and it is also available in SCAL2 and eCAL.  You could make some interesting designs with this.

Thanks Pandora.  I posted a link to  your video on the SCAL forum.

I played with it a bit and it works on Basic Shapes too.  I might try importing it into Inkscape and playing with it some more as I don't think this is possible with Inkscape but I will try it.

Who's having fun now?

Thanks Sue, on the original recording I did I included that part in - but the sound was all wrong - so just forgot to put it in on the 2nd run - thanks for letting folks know that - never tried to do it in inkcape but it works wonders when applied to any shape - and solves the fold /score line issue for me

best wishes
Pandora

It works in Inkscape with the exception of being able to edit the gaps.  BUT you can vary the size of the stroke.  Pretty cool!  Thanks so much for the inspiration for me to try something new.

You do a very nice job with your tutorials by the way.

Thank you for the compliment - spend so much time finding how not to do things - try to spare anyone else the struggle
