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.

Setting Score Lines
« on: March 24, 2014, 05:25:37 PM »
I have started creating files and I don't think I am doing the score lines correctly.  I am hoping for some guidance.  Once I have the "dashed" line in place, I have been highlighting the line, selecting "Stroke to Path", then selecting the entire cut file and choosing "Exclusion" or "Difference", either one. This way seems to take a very long time to cut out.  I tried just "Grouping" the score lines with the shape but it isn't read as a score line in SCAL2.  What is the correct way?

Hi there
Try drawing a dashed line then go to EXTENSIONS / MODIFY PATH / CONVERT TO DASHES - that should help hopefully
