View Full Version : Inkscape Help

Inkscape is making me want to kick the computer.

I'm using Inkscape Portable and for some reason when I draw straight lines with the pen tool and turn them into curves with the thin triangular mouse pointer thing, then I look away for one second to work on something else in the shape, and when I try and manipulate that curve by clicking on the curve itself again the program won't let me. It will let me use the little lollipop things sticking off of the nodes, but it won't make a lollipop thing appear if it's defining a curve with only one lollipop.

An annoying fix is to force the line straight and then to a curve, but if I click away it stops letting me use it again.

This sounds like a program bug... Can you install it instead of running portable?

PS: They're called Bezier Handles. "Lollipops" is a bit confusing.... <.<

Thanks, that seems to have fixed the problem. I'll have a play around in it to make sure it's not going to break again.
