The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) 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. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. 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.
