You're right, same here.
If I ungroup and then do Extensions/Color/Negativ i get a light gray on the smiley.
If you want a white color you can change the fill color. And the smiley has no background. So if you want to export to PNG bitmap you get the smiley with alpha.

Does not work.
I have opened the smiley svg, clicked on "Edit" -> "Select all in all layers",
then "Extension" -> "Color" -> "Negativ".
Color did not change.
Inkscape version: 0.48.4
 
Thanks a lot

Betreff: Re: [Inkscape-user] Invert colors
Mark your objekts, use Extensions/Color/Negativ. It really change the color, cut it into stone.

Hello,
 
I have a problem inverting colors. I would want to invert the color
itself, not appling a filter.
My problem: The color remains the same.
This is what I have tried:
wget http://doppelbauer.name/smiley.svg
inkscape smiley.svg --verb=EditSelectAllInAllLayers --verb=org.inkscape.color.negative.noprefs --verb=FileSave --verb=FileClose
 
"smiley.svg" remains black.
 
Thanks a lot!
Markus
