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.

A Mystery
« on: April 21, 2012, 05:55:22 PM »
Hi, who likes solving mysteries?

I have been experimenting with the knot feature and then a friend got me interested in radial tiled clones. So, last night I experimented with both features and created a file I quite like. The problem is, it seems to misbehave when I try to do the final step. It is frustrating as I would like to make a video but I can't until I solve the mystery.

Screenshots and original file are below for anyone who would like to have a look. I imagine I am making a simple mistake and would be interested in knowing what I am doing wrong.

That one is very odd.  I found that if I changed a node in an area that deforms (just one node, and I tried a couple of different ones and they both worked) that I could use the Path operations without deforming.   :?:  I couldn't find anything that looked like it would be a problem.

Thanks for looking Heather. I went back to my file and deleted one node and it worked. I wonder why? Thank you for finding an easy fix. I would never have thought of deleting a node.

Normally I reduce nodes but as this was a trial run so I didn't bother. I am now curious to see if it happens again if I try the same steps but use different shapes.

This is a new problem to me, and I didn't know about deleting a node fixing a design; I'm sure I have some abandoned designs because I was having a problem similar to what you have described........

I can assure you it is new to me as well. I still find it strange that removing one node makes such a difference. It works so I won't question why  :D

Since posting the file, I re-created the design from the beginning, following the same steps and the problem did not happen on the second attempt.

A few examples of the type of designs that can be created using the same process.
