Need Joined and Unjoined Node differential colors

Asked by Sora Hjort on 2018-10-09

Is there a way to specify the colors of nodes that have been joined, and those that haven't?

In many of my projects I have to go through and join many nodes manually, since I import from a different program, then clean up in Inkscape. It would make my work flow much easier if there was a way to make the joined and unjoined nodes more visually distinct, as the current small outline difference is not enough for larger projects. Which that only appears if two unjoined nodes are overlapping each other.

So something like having unjoined nodes being red, while joined nodes being green, or any other quite differing colors would be useful.

Often many are meant to be unjoined as open lines, so selecting all and telling it to join all nodes does not work.

If this is not an available option, can it then be added to a requested feature?

An example of the kind of thing I go through: https://i.imgur.com/hSPaVeO.png

I thought I got all the nodes when I took that screenshot, and even now I'm noticing a lot I missed.

Would this extension be of use to you:

https://github.com/fablabnbg/inkscape-chain-paths

(it can do the joining automatically, you give it a minimum distance between any two nodes, and then it will join those that are close enough)

As for the feature request, if you still need it, visit https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape to make one (search before you post a new report, please).

Can you help with this problem?
