    Hello everyone, I down loaded inkscape yesterday and I can't get it to work. I go to turn a pic to greyscale a little window pops up like it want's to do something and then it's gone LOL , Does anyone know if there is another program you have to down load to get it to work? Clueless with inkscape.

    Don't worry be scrolling

    Did you reboot after installing? Turn off virus protection and all Windows programs while installing? Try re-installing?

        From the users manual:

        Inkscape can be enhanced by Effects. These are scripts or programs that can be run from inside Inkscape. Most Effects require external programs, usually written in Perl or Python.

        Many of the included Effects might be of marginal use to the average user. However, much can be learned by examining the code in order to write your own scripts. Look in the share/inkscape/extensions directory for the code. Note that on Windows, Effects written with Python will pop open an empty console window. This window will disappear when the Effect is finished.

        A few Effects are built into Inkscape; they are located in the source directory src/extensions/internal.

        If an effect doesn't work, it may be that you are missing some external dependency. You can check the if this is the case by looking at the log file extensions-errors.log in your Inkscape preferences directory (.inkscape on Linux, Documents and Settings\USER\Application Data\Inkscape on Windows).

        I haven't found any of these directories yet but I have the same 'problem'. I'll keep looking.

          Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
          by cwmagee
          A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

          Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
          That is...

          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
