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.

Ungrouping
« on: October 03, 2010, 09:15:34 AM »
Is it possible in Inkscape to type a word/phrase and then ungroup so you can move or resize the letters separately as you can in DMII?  I thought I did it once but cannot do it now.

With Inkscape 0.47:  

Type your word/phrase
Use Path/Object to path
Ungroup either by right clicking on your words and selecting Ungroup, or from the menu Object/Ungroup

When you use Object to path on text in Inkscape 0.47, it automatically puts each letter in its own Path and then uses Object/Group to keep them together.
