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.

Can't see printing preferences (Mac 10.5, Inkscape .47)
« on: August 08, 2010, 08:31:30 PM »
Hi. I have a brand new Silhouette SD and am trying to use it with Inkscape .47 on a Mac (OS 10.5 Leopard). I have the Craft Robo plugin v1.61 installed. I can see the Silhouette as a printer from inside Inkscape, but do not see the Printing Preferences anywhere on the print screen. Anyone know what to do with this configuration to make it work?

Ooooo Ksnits

I will endeavour to try and find out any info for you, but my experience stems from using windows; so I may throw your query out to the rest of the members....

Hi,

I'm not sure about what you are asking.  I have Mac 10.6.4 and when I select print from the file menu I see this.

By working across the menu bar I can pick pretty much all of the preferences I need to print with.  I don't have the silhouette but I can print to any of my printers, I've never tried to print to the scanner tho.

Can you show/describe what you are seeing?

I can use a regular printer. The problem is that with the Silhouette (and other cutters) you need to be able to select the cut line before sending to the printer. The screen capture you put up is perfect. If you look at Cardsulike's screen shots from the same place, there is a "Printer Preferences" button that enables you to get to the Silhouette's cutting information. I don't know how to access this info without that button. There must be a way. I'm hoping any Mac users with a similar cutter (Wishblade, etc) might know?
