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.

I always have a problem with scale, so if I don't plan out the entire page or card in Inkscape, I usually have to re-cut things because they aren't the right size.   :?

You are not alone I have learned to cut on copy paper until I get it right then move onto the material I really intend to use: )

No you are not alone. I am another one who cuts outs of economical white paper until I get the sizing correct. Even then I often fail if the shape is unusual. I have lots of designs waiting to be sized correctly.

LOL, I just cut one simple little oval 4 times before I got what I needed for layering.  I forgot to convert the ellipse to Path, and ECAL does weird things to the sizes of non-Path shapes.  Who would have thought?
