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.

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. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Create a Motif (medallion) from a Shape
« on: January 26, 2013, 10:34:23 AM »
Hi, the ladies from the UK "Useful Graphic Design Tutorials" have done a tutorial on creating a motif from a shape.  It has some very helpful keyboard shortcuts in it as well as yet another way to "rotate" a shape into a motif.

I used a heart as the shape for this.  BEWARE this takes a lot of power for Inkscape so keep your original image small or you will bring Inkscape down to a crawl

Here is a link to the video tutorial

I tried this, and it is quick and easy.
I think I'll stick with slower methods though because it does create a lot of nodes.
