Issue with new inkscape download

Post by biggscoug » Tue May 10, 2022 9:38 pm

I downloaded the latest version of inkscape today. I drew 1 sign and noticed my circles weren’t all the way closed when I began drawing them. How can I close them?

I think I have the latest version of Inkscape. Perhaps upload your svg file and I will open it with my Inkscape to see if it does the same thing.

As far as I know, the latest version of Inkscape is 1.1 - which is what I'm using.

I really don't know what I am doing as I really don't use Inkscape all that much. But I do remember my older version occasionally doing what you are experiencing. I just chalked it up to "operator error".

The question I have is did you draw that circle in Inkscape or import a drawing from another source. If imported it may have been assembled that way. Now you could use the node tools to join the section together. In Inkscape a circle would need to be broken in an operation to be like that.

I got it fixed. It was a button click.

I drew the circle.

Can you provide more info on what button click it was for others who may experience the same issue?

So OK then - WHAT WAS THE ANSWER??? What exactly did you do to create the circle with the gap, and what exactly did you do to correct this?

Lighten up dude, when a problem is solved it is nice to pass on the solution so it is in the record. That way when another member has a similar problem the can use the search function for a quick answer. It is just a courtesy not a demand. :HaHa :HaHa

It just seems that way to you.
Bigbscoug - you need to lose the attitude!! I am not trying to "hassle" you. We simply wanted to know what you did to change your circle mode from the broken circle you originally showed us to the one where you fixed it to a complete circle. It makes it hard to try to help folks here if they don't want to cooperate. As Tom said, it would just be nice to know how your problem was solved so this solution will be available in the future for other members.

I asked you the first time, Area asked you the second time - and you shined us off. I asked you the third time and your blew up.

As Tom said, it is just a courtesy to offer help to others here. Just remember - it's a 2-way street.

David, none of my posts were confrontational. Yours were. You should be apologizing. Not telling me to lose the attitude.

I dont want anything from you David. You’re a jerk and should be reprimanded for what you’ve posted.

And if this is what was asked, fine. Demanding I answer? David can kick rocks. His attitude isn’t welcome.

I think you are correct. I never paid any attention to those options for the circle/ellipse at the top of the page. I had the same thing happen to me a while back, where it was drawing incomplete circles and I didn't know why. Thanks for clearing that up. As you "ASSumed", I think the OP probably had the icon on the top left selected and that was causing the problem. It's always good to know these answers to help myself and others here avoid the same mistakes in the future.

Thanks for pointing that out.
David

I did not ask for my thread to be used as a teaching tool. You made that choice and got butt hurt when I chose not to be involved. And now you act this way? Get over yourself old man.

That's the way it works here. It's all about sharing information and ideas. If you don't want you information shared, then don't ask questions.

I’ll ask whatever I want to. Don’t reply or get involved.

Your arrogance and bad attitude is a disservice to the forum. You lowered the experience I have had here. You are a condescending jerk. And now you tell me how it works here and not to ask questions?

Kick rocks old man.
