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.

line colour
« on: November 06, 2010, 03:30:40 PM »
Help, something has happened to my lines tonight (bezier, rectangles, stars etc). At first they started off really thick so I tried to rectify that, now some are narrow and black, some are narrow and grey and some are non existent! What setting should they be and how do you set a default line?  I struggle to use the Fill and Stroke menu that comes up on the right of the screen as it seems not very exact and I don't know what I'm aiming for on the sliding scale.  I usually manage by right clicking down in the bottom left of the screen.

I dont know how to do a screenprint, can't see it in FAQ.  I've gone back in and the thick lines have gone but I've still got a grey rectangle and grey calligraphic stroke though the setting in the bottom left says black.

Hi Ruth

I know I have a pictorial somewhere on my PC showing how to do a screenprint, but can't find it at the moment; but I hope these 2 quick pictorials will help you with your outline setting.
