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.

I am wanting to remove the horizontal black lines in the red area. What is the best way to do this?

Welcome to the forum!

Here's how I would approach this.  See the green path in the screenshot?  I would draw a path like that.  Then fill it with red, and place it between the crest and the mesh, in z-order.

There are other ways to do that.  But that would be the easiest for me.

You can move things through the z-order using these buttons, on the Selection tool control bar , , ,

Or else in the Object menu > Raise, Lower, etc.
