Inkscape: A Vector Drawing Tool

Layer guides

Registered by Victor Westmann on 2008-03-24

Inkscape will be much more organized if we had layer guides. A layer guide would be a layer only visible to the user but not in the exported png file and nor in the final SVG file(viewed by web browsers or SVG Viewer programs). This feature can be really interesting when we need to text type to tell other users what a simbol is and what is its heigh and width, or where to put some other simbol, if its transparent or not, but we dont want it to appear in other place other than 'editing mode'(inside Inkscape). This feature is originally from Macromedia Flash 8 (from Studio 8).

22-JUN-2008 Pajarico: do you think a per-layer "print/do not print" switch would do?
27-JUN-2008 Pajarico: Addendum: By that I mean that the print/do not print switch allows each layer to be exported/printed/viewed in a web browser or not. So beside the eye switch (used to see/hide a layer) you would have the other switch. A layer is always editable as long as the eye is activated, the print switch only controls the exporting, printing an viewing in web browsers of each layer.

18-OCT-2010 VictorWestmann: Yes! That would do and would be really useful. Thanks.
