Inkscape Import Scale Wrong?

Post by jlpatte2 »

Anytime I import an SVG (principally from Inkscape) the scale is wrong, something will be 3.9 in in inkscape, but 4.9in in eCal. I also tried pulling some SVGs from svgcut.com and they seem to be imported at a different scale also. Is there some kind of option I'm missing in either inkscape or ecal? This is really frustrating, i have to generate everything, then import, then re-adjust the size every time. It would be great if they just import at the same size they were designed in Inkscape.

Thanks,

Josh Patterson

There is a setting in the Preferences to set the svg dpi. It's a drop down box in the General tab. Set it to "90 (Inkscape)". HTH

They should be the same, although it's not unusual to need to resize to match the original export. But that's easy to do.
