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.

Combine or Group?
« on: November 27, 2010, 01:12:12 AM »
If you have 2 or more shapes you can bind them together with Combine or Group, what is the difference?  Does it affect what you can do afterwards :?

If you Group Objects you will not be able to weld them together but you will be able to ungroup them at will.  If you Combine you will need to use Break Apart to work on a particular section.  Doing this will break the entire selected section into its original elements.
