  • Inkscape info?

    I am looking for a tutorial or someone to point me in the right direction with inkscape. I have tried Gimp but can't get it to do what I want which was to kern the letters. Now I have loaded Inkscape and have gotten it to do some of the things I want but can't figure out the adding graphics to words.

    I want to do some of my own wordart and most of all I need to add graphics to letters for my grandkids names. I can get the letters and lines to connect for wordart but cannot figure out how to get the graphics in the right places.

    Anyone?

    Jim_Mex wrote a tutorial on Inkscape which is posted in the "Stickies" section of the Intarsia section of this forum. I found it to be very helpful and easy to follow.

          I have watched all the videos above and they are all great.

          I would start with the one mentioned by Don R first. Do the homework too as it really makes you learn a lot.

          Then watch the others. The ones by Jim mex cover a lot too.

            I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

            by Bill Wilson
            I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

            Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

            And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

            Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
