I wrote a tutorial… on my new art Lady Vampire -…
In this tut I reveal all of my secrets, techniques of drawing, giving volumes, etc. It is very detailed and suitable for even novice photoartist.

Hi Inkscape, I am a fan of the Software. I heard you are about to release a new version and I hope you can insert this easy request I have.

1. The Screens for the Layer is too small. I only find two layers in it (especially when I add the alignment tab)
2. How to fix the problem with the ink/calligraphy tool and zoom. Whenever I use the inktool and zoom in, the size of the inktool increases unintentionally.
3. A hotkey that automatically displays the fill and stroke options. I tend to use this alot an a hotkey would greatly help.

If it interests you, I live in a country where "software patents" are not patentable. Feel free to leave a message and I look forward in worknig with you. Thanks~

    Drag up on the title bar to detach the Layers dialog…

    … then you are free to resize the window as you wish.
  2. If I zoom in with the calligraphy tool, the size does not increase.
  3. Ctrl+Shift+F

How do you post a pic like that?…

Thanks for giving me a hint on the layer and stroke.

As for the inktool and zoom thingy, I use the inktool and zoom using the mouse wheel. In the screenshot I linked shows the inktool problem I had. I also have some other things with it. I think the tabbing part would be a solution to avoid them getting on top of each "tab" at the right-side of the navbar.

Sorry it if looks messy or Iif you already have it that would be good. Feel free to ask me about it.

So here is a sample list on the screenshot:

1. Alignment "grid lines are not aligned with the edge of top canvas"
2. Stroke Feature "to put a stroke inside, outside or center of the selection" I tried shrinking the image but it resulted in an uneven outline
3. Inktool "the zoom part 1600 zoom vz 200 zoom based on the lower right side of it"
4. Green-spot on the Toolbar "the side of it is already the buttons" and a spontaneous option will be a good addition. Its something like this… (just ignore the circles) to put in the green-tab for easy clicks
5. RYB Tabs "basically add tabs to avoid them from stepping on each other"
6. Dock Option "not really layer-lock but only object lock" this would be a great help if you want the textbase to be in one splace instead of being moved by accident
7. You answered it (stroke hotkey)
8. You answered it (layer)

  1. The grid lines are aligned with the bottom left edge of the page. If you want them to align to the top, change the page size to a multiple of 20px in that direction.
  2. I tried shrinking the image but it resulted in an uneven outline
    Using Path→Dynamic Offset will ensure the offset path is equidistant from the original.
  3. I think I get what you're saying:

    That's completely intentional, just change the size of the calligraphy tool as you zoom in.
  4. Study this toolbar

  5. Drag the title bars to the middle of a dialog…

    …to create tabs.

  6. Go to Object→Object Properties… and click the lock button:

    Note: it may be difficult to unlock the object again once it has been locked.
