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.

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.
