Negative Display points

Asked by David Merten on 2017-05-24

I start my image at 0,0 in the bottom left corner. I map out using the Draw Bezier icon and once I go to the xml editor and look at line d- i find that some of my points are negative. when i personally hover over each point they are all positive but do not line up. I start all images with x at 0.000 and y at 0.000 and w at 0.001 and h at 0.001. Please let me know what I am doing wrong

Hi David,

yes, Inkscape's coordinate system is reversed in y direction. This cannot be set by the user. Changing this will still require a lot of work. This work is planned to be done for Inkscape version 0.93 (but might also be done later), see the Inkscape Roadmap for more info:

Kind Regards,

Can you help with this problem?
