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.

Hello from the Netherlands
« on: February 01, 2019, 07:14:18 AM »
Hello fellow Inkscapers. My name is Kirstie and I am writing a course about Inkscape in Dutch.
That is how I ended up on this forum.

I have used Inkscape for several years now, mostly for drawings and illustrations.
Did I read correctlythat it will become a read-only forum?
Well that is a pity, but it is still very interesting.

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, this one will become read only, so that all the wonderful tutorials will still be available.  But there are still currently 2 other Inkscape forums, which can help with any kind of cutting issue.

The community's goal is to have just one forum, which is almost ready to be opened.  The other 2 will eventually close (or divert traffic to the new one), and then we will finally have one official Inkscape forum.

Since you posted in this cutting design forum, does that mean your course is about using Inkscape for digital cutting, or some particular cutter brand?

Hi Brynn,

Thank you for explaining about the 3 forums.
This course that I am writing is really a complete beginner's guide in Dutch. But I couldn't resist adding some information about plotting and lasercutting.
And no, I don't have a cutting device, but maybe that is gonna change. I do have an old-school scalpel :D.

In fablabs people often assume that Inkscape is easy to understand, but it is not for real beginners.
That is why I will explain some things for beginners about fablabs, and where to look for information.

I'm sure you're guide will be helpful.  Let me know when it's ready, and I'll list it on this page where I keep all the best manuals and tutorials:  http://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php
