Edit layer preferences (per verb-id on command line) don't work

Asked by Lebostein on 2015-02-07

Hi.

I want to edit layer preferences via command line. For example, this works:

inkscape --verb=LayerShowAll --verb=FileSave --verb=FileClose myfile.svg
inkscape --verb=LayerHideAll --verb=FileSave --verb=FileClose myfile.svg
inkscape --verb=LayerUnlockAll --verb=FileSave --verb=FileClose myfile.svg
inkscape --select=layer1 --verb=ObjectFlipVertically --verb=FileSave --verb=FileClose myfile.svg

But all other commands based on the current selected layer don't work. For example:

inkscape --select=layer1 --verb=LayerToTop --verb=FileSave --verb=FileClose myfile.svg
inkscape --select=layer1 --verb=LayerSolo --verb=FileSave --verb=FileClose myfile.svg
inkscape --select=layer1 --verb=LayerDuplicate --verb=FileSave --verb=FileClose myfile.svg

It seems that the "--select=layer1" don't select the layer with that id.

Proposing to close report with status 'Invalid' - this is q question about usage, not a bug in inkscape.
