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.

Red line, black line
« on: December 19, 2010, 11:05:38 AM »
When you're trying to edit a shape/line and use the nodes with "handles" I can move them about and  that alters the red line but the black line stays where it is.  What is the difference between the red line and the black line and how do you change the black line?

Hope that makes sense.

Hi Ruth

If you look at the picture attached you will see that when you select a black line to alter it changes to a RED line with little squares(nodes) at different intervals, and when you move a node and then deselect the the Node Tool button you should see that the shape has changed.

You can see the rest of the pictorial here: http://www.inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?topic=71.0
