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.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

A Simple Method for Drawing Triangles in Inkscape
« on: September 05, 2011, 10:54:22 AM »
I almost hate to admit it took me so long to figure this one out.  I have always felt there should be an easier way to draw triangles in Inkscape.  Previously I had used the straight line tool to draw one, or else I would draw a rectangle, change it to a path, and delete nodes.  Since there is a much easier method for drawing triangles, I'll post a link to my mini tutorial in case there are others that can benefit.

I use that polygon tool for all kinds of things besides triangles like starbursts, flowers and gears. It is so fun to play with.
Another tip for triangles. If you need one with specific measurements and/or angles you can use the dialog under Extensions>Render>Triangles. Great for math teachers!
