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.

I am wanting to remove the horizontal black lines in the red area. What is the best way to do this?

Welcome to the forum!

Here's how I would approach this.  See the green path in the screenshot?  I would draw a path like that.  Then fill it with red, and place it between the crest and the mesh, in z-order.

There are other ways to do that.  But that would be the easiest for me.

You can move things through the z-order using these buttons, on the Selection tool control bar , , ,

Or else in the Object menu > Raise, Lower, etc.
