Thanks a lot for these tutorials. You make it seem so easy and the results are so stunning and look very sophisticated. Thanks for the effort and I am sure a lot of people who don’t comment are still very appreciative of what you have here.
Hello, and thanks.
I’m still a newbie, hopefully my mistake is obvious and fixable: I’ve found that when I try to apply a gradient, the gradient handles just stay where they are rather than “stick” to the object. When I move the object around, the gradient applies the effect from the old position, changing the effect.
I’ve found the same thing happens when applying patterns . . .if I move the object, the pattern moves as well, sometimes revealing a tile-line.
I have the same problem as Paul had, but I have no clue what have I done wrong and how to correct it. When I align the spheres the filled one overlaps the other and no shade is visible. Can you help me with advice?
In Richard’s screencast he draws the first solid red circle first and then duplicates it and adds a gradient to the second circle. If you have done this in that order then your duplicated copy should be automatically on top of the original. However, if it is not then select the duplicated copy and press Ctrl+Shift+Home to raise the object to the very top (of the layer order).
Sometimes a gradient can be so subtle and it appears like the original is on top when it’s not. You can temporarily change the color of the duplicated copy to another color like blue, for instance, so you can verify the layer order. Change it back when done.
Perhaps Inkscape has remembered the last thing that you had drawn was transparent. After you draw an object, leave it selected and assign it a color by clicking on one of the swatches at the bottom of your window or by pressing Shift+Ctrl+F. My guess, anyway.
