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.

Symmetrical Shapes
« on: March 17, 2011, 04:17:19 PM »
If I have a butterfly or any other shape that is symmetrical I like to make sure it is perfectly symmetrical. It only takes a few minutes to correct a file.
If I wish to make further alterations to a symmetrical shape I do that when I have half of the shape as it saves half the time. I then follow the steps as listed below. I am sure there are other ways this can be achieved and I am only showing the steps I use.

A pictorial is under the video.
