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.

Hi, I'm hoping someone still pays attention to this site.  I'm really trying to stick with Inkscape and not purchase software just for rhinestones...
 I have followed Aussie Carolyn's three videos excessively step by step to creat a rhinestone template using interpolate subpaths.  The videos are from 2010.  Has inkscape changed so much that the steps are no longer relevant.  Because overtime I try to do the Paste path the rhinestone circles never paste to the circle I copied to clipboard.


Draw a circle (stroke only).  Object to Path. Copy to clipboard
Draw a filled circle to 3.5mm.  Object to Path.  Duplicate.  Select both and choose Combine.  Select path effects and add interpolate sub-paths.  Paste path.  When i get to this step nothing happens unlike the videos I follow along as i'm doing this.

If anyone knows if Inkscape still works this way for rhinestone templates, please let me know.  I"m so frustrated.  I literally have wasted hours and I just wanted to outline a circle to put around a monogram for my daughters.

Thanks for any advice anyone has.

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, we're still paying attention  :)  Yes, from 2010, some things could have changed, so that older tutorials don't work anymore.  Or it could also be that you're using options which were not even available back then, without realizing it, which make it not work.  Can you give us a link to the tutorial that you're trying to follow? 

I can't test using the steps you gave, because they aren't specific enough.  (Is the first circle larger or smaller than the 2nd?  Is the 2nd inside the first? Above, to the side, etc.  Etc.)  So if you could just show us the tutorial, we could test.

(Were LPEs available in 2010?  The older I get, the faster time seems to fly!)
