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.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

Hi, There are four ways I know to create scalloped circles.

1. Pattern along path. I think you will find this is the method most of us use.  
Link to post on my blog http://http://cuttingtime.blogspot.com/2009/08/inkscape-pattern-along-path.html and here is a link to the video Scrappy Dew did from the blog post http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H8vot0EG1U

2. Even using a star then path outset can create scalloped circles.

3. Scalloped shapes using interpolate, the video shows a rectangle but the same steps are used for a circle.

4. Tiled Clones can also be used to create scalloped shapes.

The method you use will depend on you and what you prefer doing. If you need more help, let us know.

Your welcome. As soon as I get time I plan on transferring everything from my blog to the forum and more of course. I listed the two easiest methods as the first two but added the others as they are handy to know about.

I have been trying to follow this video "Scalloped shapes using interpolate" but when I do what you do it doesn't do the same thing in a couple of places.ie when I do Align/Path/Union they either dont magically go together or the scallops disappear altogether.  I thought I saw that there was a pdf but couldn't find it and have been trying to make notes by constantly stopping video.  Can you help?

Hi Ruth

I know those instructions were written for the 0.47 Inkscape version, for some reason some of the features in the 0.48 version don't quite work the same way; thats why a few of us are staying with 0.47 until the bugs are truely worked out of the 0.48 version. Some one will be along to help you soon.....

Hi Ruth, everything does disappear if you don't apply path>object to path before union.
I am still using Inkscape version 0.47 but will install 0.48 later today and see what happens when I use interpolate sub paths.
In the meantime here are the written instructions for interpolate sub paths in version 0.47.
