Dose inkscape support multiple core processor now?

Asked by longgangfan on 2017-03-13

I am using inkscape 0.92 on ubuntu 14.04. I got a large svg file which has too many elements(lines and dots or objects). When I edit the file with inkscape, it woks slowly and the workspace keeps lagging. When I check my system monitor, it seems only one of the two processors working hard. Is this a problem about supporting multiple core processor? Is there way to solve my problem or to edit my svg file?

Hi loggangfan,

if there are no filters or path effects in the file, and you have never opened the objects dialog during your current Inkscape session, and you have removed all empty defs (File -> Clean up document), then it is as it is...

AFAIK, Inkscape does only make use of all processors for the filters, if you set that in the settings.
(but I'm not sure, you could ask on the developer mailing list or on the IRC (chat) to get a better answer).

Kind Regards,
