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.

How to use Ctrl f when working with layers in Inkscape
« on: July 24, 2012, 02:12:20 PM »
Hi,  I am very happy to have read the following http://www.inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?topic=427.0 as it has shared so much light on how to you ctrl f. I have been trying to find & select layers with this tool but simply could not find my way until I read your post. I don't mean to nag nor impose but would it be possible to explain the other components of this tool e.g. "Text, ID, Style etc & their application in the use of selecting layers etc. Thanks for reading

Now you've got me. I don't know as I have only used ctrl f for finding a matching colour. I did a bit of experimenting and failed. Hopefully another member can answer your question.

I did a Google search and this is all I could find. The information on ctrl f is at the bottom of the page http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL ... elect.html

We have a few members who are far better with the technical side of Inkscape but they don't always visit on a daily basis. I am hoping one of them can better answer this question for you.

Any question is a good question and I would be interested in finding out more about using Ctrl F.

I was curious about this so I googled ctrl f Inkscape and found a bunch on entries.  One of them may answer your question.

Also for these kinds of questions I always go to the official Inkscape forum and ask there.  Lots or really helpful techy types there.

http://www.inkscapeforum.com

Good luck, and when you find your answer it would be nice if you came here and shared it and how you use it in your design work.
