downloading image from Inkscape into Scan and Cut - image comes out minutely in upper left hand corner of SnC Canvas and, for example, a circle comes out as a kind of octagon.

Asked by Adele Rowe on 2017-03-17

This week have tried to create a text to down load to Scan and Cut Canvas which I had no problem doing the previous week. The text image now comes down to Canvas as a minute image in the top left hand corner of the canvas which once discovered can be selected and enlarged. Last week it came "normally" in as saved in Inkscape and "called down" from my computer download file as an Inkscape SVG file. I also have had an experiment with creating a circle with another couple of thin oval attachments (Path - union done), saved and when imported into Canvas, again it is minute, and after finally getting it to a larger size it is distorted to roughly an eight sided figure. I have felt rather confident with Inkscape over time and have done more experimenting, designed a few images, played with flourishes, etc. and up until this week have had only "learning curve" issues. In my confidence I managed to find the old Inkscape downloads (I had 2!!), uninstall, and then install the new download. I have gone to images saved prior to this week on my computer and they download correctly into SnC Canvas. I am not sure if the problem has occurred with my new download or if I have changed something in my "exploring". My husband helped me with the minute dot but as he has no idea of Inkscape/Brother Scan n Cut up until today is a little lost without learning further of both. You did help me with a what now was a very simple issue with my introduction to Inkscape which was much appreciated. I do have screen shots of my "events". Help!!?? And thank you, Adele

Hi Adele,

yes, some screenshots and the original SVG files (those that work and those that don't) and the ones you exported (again, those that work and those that don't) will be helpful to explore the issue. I don't know anything about 'Scan and Cut', though, so don't expect miracles.

Please upload the requested files to imgh.us (or any other file hosting service) and post links to them in your next comment.

Kind Regards,
 Maren

Adele Rowe (olwabbit) said : #2

Hi Maren,

Thank you for the quick reply. Oh dear, a learning curve again ... I haven't ever uploaded photos to a site like imgh.us and not sure how to send you the link.

So the easiest way for me to do it is: my user name is ol_wabbit and password mac789 - the password for each screenshot is "hiccup".

Screen shot 8 (and 9 - I don't know how to delete it!) show hearts I made in Inkscape saved to computer as an SVG
Screen shot 10 - shot of Brother Scan and Cut canvas - it is the very very tiny dot on the top left hand corner!
Screen shot 11 - is the image when I have finally managed to select it and enlarge
Screen shot 12 - is similar to the original size designed in Inkscape
Screen shot 13 is a Batman image I did the week before and saved as an SVG
Screen shot 14 is how the image downloaded to Scan and Cut Canvas - with no issue or problems
Screen shot 15 is a distorted image of a simple lot of circles (to test transfer) that I dowloaded from Inkscape to Scan and Cut

I have always saved to Inkscape SVG when saving as.

My husband has been having a play for me today on his computer and saving as a plain SVG. When uploading onto Scan and Cut (again on his computer) it is coming out at the same scale
as on Inkscape (in most cases).

I think I have possibly corrupted something in the past week in my Inkscape but for the life of me with comparing my designs and their properties can't work out where.

I hope what the images above help in an explantion.

Again, thank you for any help.

Thank you again, passwords changed, as I mentioned on a couple of craft things only. Had a grey moment there and a little overcome with my issue. Have just imported a couple of silhouettes into Inkscape, edited, saved with "svg" only "not Inkscape svg" and worked successfully??? Didn't when I saved under "inkscape svg".

Await your comments.

Hi Adele,

can you upload the Batman SVG (which works), the Hearts SVG (which doesn't work) and a plain SVG version of the Hearts SVG (which works, as far as I understand), too?

I'd need to take a look at the files to 'spot the difference'.

Glad you got the passwords part sorted out! (and I hope you didn't get into a row with your husband!)

Adele Rowe (olwabbit) said : #8

Hi,

You are simply ... great!

We're in the middle of cleaning up tradesmen dust, my husband the garage and me the living area. What he doesn't know .....

By upload can you define exactly what you mean and how I do it? Pretty please? I do have a scientist for a husband who has taught (or tried) me to methodical in investigating errors. I haven't had any success with my limited but growing knowledge with spotting any. Am in the rather older age bracket but I am enjoying the challenge of Inkscape and was actually into designing flourishes and attempting 3D.

Thank you,
Adele

Hi Adele,

the procedure for the SVG files would be identical to the one you used for the screenshots - visit imgh.us, upload SVG file (it's an image file, and imgh.us is supposed to support uploading those, while most other image hosters on the web don't support SVG), copy-paste the link here.

Then I could access the files and play a game of 'spot the difference' - I can't promise I'll find it, but I will try.

Hi Maren,

circles_2_2.svg
Circles_plain.svg
S_n_C_Ted_Menton_5_1.svg
S_n_C_Batman_Logo_3.svg
S_n_C_Hearts_update.svg
S_n_C_Hearts_update_1.svg

Thank you. Again, your "how to" explanations are excellent.

Could only find 1 Batman file. I did do a lot of deleting yesterday in amongst the experimenting.

I have included the Ted Menton font file which started all of this off. I just wanted to do a quick label and it didn't happen!

I was playing with the bezier and nodes hence the hearts but I didn't try and download them to Scan n Cut right due to the experimentation and didn't expect to keep them.
The circles were my next step after the font file didn't upload properly in Scan n Cut. I have googled to see if anyone else had a glitch with Scan and Cut in that period but didn't find anything.

And I of course don't hold you to discovering the issue but any help appreciated. It was interesting with the plain SVG versus Inkscape SVG - managed to edit a couple of images and upload to Scan and Cut using plain SVG with no problem yesterday. Haven't played today. To busy with builder's dust. Our computers are on the upper upper level well away from it thank goodness.

Kind regards,
Adele

Hi Adele,

I've been able to reconstruct the links from your last post, but I need to know which of these work correctly with your Scan and Cut, and which don't:

http://imgh.us/circles_2_2.svg (contains 2 ellipses, 12x12 inch, viewbox 0 0 12 12)
http://imgh.us/Circles_plain.svg (contains 1 path)
http://imgh.us/S_n_C_Ted_Menton_5_1.svg
http://imgh.us/S_n_C_Batman_Logo_3.svg
http://imgh.us/S_n_C_Hearts_update.svg
http://imgh.us/S_n_C_Hearts_update_1.svg

It would also be helpful to have two identical images (identical in Inkscape), that do import differently into Scan and Cut. This would be the ideal case for comparing.

Adele Rowe (olwabbit) said : #12

Hi again,

I wish I could buy you a BIG box of chocolates and pass them through to you! Thank you for taking the time and in particular the effort.

Okay - to answer your queries.

circles 2 2.svg (containing 2 ellipses) - comes into S n C as a dot in the top left hand corner. If I select and group and then go to 500% on the screen I can pull it out.

Circles plain. svg (containing 1 path) - comes into S n C as it is on the Inkscape screen. Sorry I thought this was the pair to the one above.

Comment: on these two ... if the first one has 2 ellipses does that mean I haven't gone Path > Union? (apparently this is necessary for Scan and Cut as per U Tube videos I have watched)
As the circles plain worked and is 1 path does that "compute" to the comment? That is, it is my error and I haven't done union>path.

Ted Menton 5 svg - comes in the same as circles 2.2 svg above.

Batman Logo 3.svg comes in perfectly. I think I mentioned that earlier on as being an okay example but at this stage???!!!! This was done before the "week that was" and Ihad no problems up until then.

Hearts update.svg - comes in the same as circles 2.2.svg

Hearts update 1.svg - comes in as it is on the Inkscape screen.

The hearts would be two identical images? as required?

From there in case it was a glitch in either S n C or me I have been playing today. Hopefully I get the download right today.

pink_circles_20_inkscape.svg As per Circles 2.2 svg
pink_circles_20_plain_svg.svg Comes in as per Inkscape
squirrel_Inkscape.svg As per Circles 2.2 svg
squirrel_plain_SVG.svg As per Circles 2.2 svg (just to difficult!!!)
Live_Simply_Inkscape.svg As per Circles 2.2svg
Live_Simply_Plain.svg Comes in as per Inkscape

I hope I did it right and did manage to give you pairs this time.

Kind regards, THANK YOU,

Adele

Hi Adele,

I've compared the SVG source of both the hearts files (http://imgh.us/S_n_C_Hearts_update.svg and
http://imgh.us/S_n_C_Hearts_update_1.svg) and the newly added circles files (http://imgh.us/pink_circles_20_inkscape.svg and
http://imgh.us/pink_circles_20_plain_svg.svg).

Anything that pertains to units, or localization of path nodes is identical in these files.

So if they are indeed importing differently into your Scan and Cut software, that software must have an issue with something that is part of the Inkscape-related stuff that is also saved in the SVG file (and which, as per specification, it should be ignoring). I'm assuming it might be reading some part of the file wrongly (but of course, can't say for sure).

The two squirrel files both still contain all Inkscape-specific attributes - I think you must have used a different way/method of exporting for that file's 'plain' version. It does have some rounding of numbers, but else the files are identical. It most probably has not been exported as 'plain SVG' - maybe as 'optimized SVG'.

Can you try this image in your Scan and Cut software:
http://imgh.us/squirrel_Inkscape_with_less_inkscape-specific_stuff.svg

I have removed what I thought could be the most probable cause of confusion for the program. If it comes out in the correct size, then we definitely know that Scan and Cut has a bug (and that you can prevent this from happening by either saving as plain svg, or by not saving the window geometry in Inkscape).

Kind Regards,
 Maren

Screen shot (17) as it came in on Scan and Cut Canvas; Screen shot (17) zooming in to 500% plus.

Is this good or bad?

I do not know where to find the mentioned screenshots. I've been able to reconstruct the other links by just adding http://imgh.us in front of them (i.e. a good guess), but these names here contain spaces, and those don't exist in URLs.

Good morning!

 We had an outage all day yesterday and unable to use computer

https://imgh.us/squirrel_Inkscape_with_less_inkscape-specific_stuff_1.svg

Is the above correct? This was saved via Inkscape SVG - and comes out as minute dot in Scan and Cut canvas which can be found by zooming in and then enlarged before going back to normal screen.

http://imgh.us/squirrel_Inkscape_with_less_inkscape-specific_stuff_plain_SVG.svg

This was saved via Inkscape plain SVG - and imported correctly into Scan and Cut canvas.

Is this good or bad news? Do you get a chocolate bar?

Hi Adele,

can you please post links, i.e. something that starts with http:// , if you would like me to have a look?

I do not know where to find the mentioned screenshots. I've been able to reconstruct the other links by just adding http://imgh.us in front of them (i.e. a good guess), but these names here contain spaces, and those don't exist in URLs.

Kind Regards,
 Maren

Hi Adele,

I thought you would be going to show me the screenshots from your last comment...

Can you please download this file:
http://imgh.us/squirrel_Inkscape_with_less_inkscape-specific_stuff.svg

And then *DO NOT* open it with Inkscape, only with your Scan and Cut software.
And then tell me if the size is correct or not.

If it is, I get my chocolate bar, and Scan and Cut is seriously broken in how it reads SVG.

If it isn't, I will still get my chocolate bar ;-) - but couldn't find the issue. And you would just have to do File -> Save A Copy... -> Plain SVG to always get a correct result.

Kind Regards,
 Maren

Hi,

Sorry ... misread your message.

Attached is a screen shot of your downloaded file opened with Scan and Cut software.

I do belong with some Scan and Cut groups on facebook and have been following to see if anyone else has had a similar issue. Not that particular issue to date. I shall let you know if any discussion does come up.

Thank you so much for your efforts. You have been so patient and your instructions have been easy to follow. I have again learnt so much in exploring the issue.

Enjoy your chocolate bars!!!

Kindest regards,
Adele

Hi Adele,

I can't see the attachment, but from what you wrote, I assume it doesn't work :-/ Well, it was just a guess, would have been weird if the Scan and Cut software had such a huge bug.

It would be great if you could let others know in this thread when/if you find a different solution. Things like these are probably googled by others, who don't care (or dare) to ask for help.

(I've even had a couple pieces of chocolate cake today, probably undeserved ;-) )

Hope you'll make plenty of cool stuff with your cutting machine!

If you ever feel like sharing your results, you could post a photo of your creations at:

Hi,

I missed our daily exchange yesterday!

Actually everyone in the groups I belong to have, I discovered, rather "cool" to ask questions, and don't mind being a novice. It is interesting. Before I asked you I did scour these new found groups but wasn't game to ask. And I knew I had access to Inkscape for questions. Somewhere around midnight on Friday night I did come across a comment (which I have been searching for today to no avail) that said to save files in SVG plain. If I find the comment and what it actually related to will copy the relevant lines and send to you. Just weird that I was sailing along perfectly okay since May last year and then had this little hiccup.

There are several versions of the cutting machine for home/light commercial use ... Scan and Cut is the latest edition produced by Brother; there is also Cricuit and Silhouette plus some others. I am familiar with the concept as we had a rather large computer operated router table for a business in one of my previous lives. People are producing some incredible items including miniatures, miniature buildings, landscapes, etc. The design part is what has captured my imagination ... whether I will be able to achieve what I want in the future???? I did do a Batman card from scratch on Inkscape for our darling grandson's fourth birthday which was fun. I forgot to take a shot of it. Will ask for one and post.

Don't have two (?) many pieces of chocolate or cake.

And it has been fun, thank you.

Kind regards,
Adele

Hi Adele,

I'm looking forward to your posts on inkscapeforum.com :-)

(made a card today, too, with Inkscape, but the cutting was done manually ;-) )

Kind Regards,
 Maren

Adele Rowe (olwabbit) said : #25

Ha, ha ! ! Want to see it. I spent yesterday making a tree branch from scratch for the squirrels (it is for our son's wedding in three weeks). Am really pleased and did get jitters when I finally had to load to Scan and Cut. Did it via the plain SVG and am really pleased. Screen shot attached. Will work on the rest of the card today.

Kind regards,
Adele

If only attachments would work. I can't see it :-( (that's why I suggested the forum, it's more straightforward in that regard) - but I bet it looks nice and your family will enjoy it!

For my kirigami / OA cards, it's similarly exciting, as you can only see if it works out with the measurements when you've already cut it all and are going to fold.

Adele Rowe (olwabbit) said : #27

Hi,

Love Kirigami ... it is one of the reasons why I bought my Scan n Cut. And origami .... read an article last week on a ex NASA scientist who designed, I think it was a solar panel for use on space craft, using the origami concepts; and the products stemming from them in all kinds of fields.

Have just had news that our son in law in Sydney (we are in Melbourne) has to have emergency surgery and my current play time has to come to an end. Will fly there to assist our daughter with her two children for a week or so.

Will follow through on images, etc. when I return.

All such fun.

Take care,
Adele
