Inkscape far worst than Illustrator?


Hi,

I am using Inkscape, and I must say that it is far far
more difficult to make a professional creation with it.

Anyone knows if Illustrator could be cloned?

Even to merge bezier,... with Inkspace. Good luck

regards

Product / skills could lead to different conclusions.

Inkspace is Open Source Software and you're free to contribute to make it "better".

Luckily, ... open source is the solution for everything

You should take a look at the tutorials on YouTube, Search for "heathenx". I learned a lot from it.

thanks.

I was facing how to continue the plot on a created bezier line.

Actually there is not snap (magnet) to adjacent/close item/point/figure.

I mean, how can you even use the program? Maybe they made the examples in illustrator, converted to svg, and imported on their website.

Hi David,
That's not possible with Inkscape yet. It's my understanding that developers are working ont it, though. (Although I could be wrong.)

You could use snapping (nodes and handles to cusp nodes) to get them aligned exactly on top of each other.

I use Inkscape all the time. If you still want to use Adobe Illustrator, then save the files as SVG in Adobe Illustrator. File, Save as, SVG.

Problem is that sometimes Adobe Illustrator adds a lot of cr.. to the code. If you want to save a file to Wikimedia commons, then that may cause problems or you upload a bloated file.

That can be undone of course and that is one of the things I do on Wikimedia commons.
Take a look at this page (it can save you a lot of time): http://www.commons.wikimedia.org/wik...be_Illustrator
