KEEP AUTOMATICALLY AND

Asked by Gabriel Magalhaes on 2018-06-23

I HAVE TWO QUESTIONS, THAT I'M MAKING A LOT DIFFERENCE AT WORK WHEN I USE INKSCAPE:
THE FIRST TIMES THE COMPUTER MADE ME WITHOUT BATTERY (AND A PORTABLE), AND I LOSE ALL THE WORK DONE SINCE IT SAVE WHEN THE INKSCAPE OF AN ERROR, IN THESE SITUATIONS I CAN MAKE TO CHANGE IN THE PROGRAM DEFINITIONS, SO NOT TO LOSE EVERYTHING. WORK DONE WHEN I STAY WITHOUT BATTERY OR EVEN STAND WITH LIGHT.

2º I HAVE A PICTURE IN VECTOR, A COMPANY LOGO, BUT WHEN I EXPORT IT TO OTHER PROGRAMS, FOR EXAMPLE TO CREATE BUSINESS CARDS OR POSTERS, ETC OR EXPORT TO THE WORLD THE PICTURE MEETS ME WITH A WHITE SQUARE / BACKGROUND, HOW DO I SO THAT IT SHOULD NOT HAPPEN AND I ONLY HAVE THE PICTURE CONTOUR.
THANKS

CAN YOU USE normal letters, please? This is hard to read...

What is your first question? Crashes happen, unfortunately. You can use the autosave feature, and save frequently (after each valuable change) to prevent loss of your work.

For your second question, we'd need to see the file. Either there's a white rectangle in it, or you still have a raster image in it. Or your viewer does not read SVG correctly/displays it wrongly/converts it to jpg before displaying it (websites do this frequently).

To share a file, upload it to a file hosting website and share a link here. You can use dropbox, google drive, framadrop, and other file hosters.

Regarding the first question how can I automatically save? What settings do
I have to change for the program to automatically save? What are the steps?

in relation to the second question what do I do and vectorize a bitmap
image so that it stays in lines or dots. Then I save in three ways in svg
file, pdf file (for use in the vinyl cutting machine) and in CAIRO PNG to
save as image, what happens to me if I need to use the image in word, paint
or other business card program for example.If using SVG sometimes is not
compatible, if you use pdf, it is difficult to program and sometimes not to
change, and if png appears in the destination program a white background in
the image that I need to cut. What I wanted was to keep only the outline of
the image.

It will be possible to speak in Spanish or Portuguese, and it is easier for
me

For setting up autosave, go to
Edit > Preferences > Input/Output > Autosave, choose a directory where to save, an interval, activate autosave, then restart Inkscape.

Ah. Don't save as Cairo PNG, use File > Export PNG image instead. Cairo PNG is a special case of the PNG file format, not the normal one. It has different features (e.g. no transparency).

To vectorize to lines, instead of areas which you get when you use the built-in 'Trace Bitmap' dialog, you need to either:

- manually vectorize the drawing
- use a centerline tracing tool (e.g. this extension: https://github.com/fablabnbg/inkscape-centerline-trace (currently broken, wait a couple of days, or read how to fix here: https://github.com/fablabnbg/inkscape-centerline-trace/issues/24)

Can you help with this problem?
