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.

Entering a set value for Linked Offset and Dynamic Offset
« on: September 02, 2010, 05:49:06 AM »
When you use Linked or Dynamic Offset you can set the value of the offset by utilising the xml editor.
- draw the shape
- apply path>dynamic offset or path>linked offset
- open XML editor while the offset path is selected
- in the lower right change the setting and click Set and your offset will  now be changed.
The default setting will be px but you can enter a different number such as mm, cm or in. After you hit set the number will change to px.

I often find it is quicker to set the offset value this way than to keep moving the node until it looks right. It is also handy if you have to create mats for a set of designs as the same offset value can be added to each design.
