Hi Javi,

If you check the Inkscape status bar, I'll bet it tells you that "one of the objects is not a path".

I think the tutorial was written for an earlier version of Inkscape, when converting text to a path resulted in a single path object. With 0.48 it actually produces a group of paths. So you need to select the text, convert to path, ungroup, then Path > Union to convert it to a single path.

Once you've done that you have two single path objects and the intersection should work.

I have found this tuto about creating a rubber stamp effect:


It says I should do an intersection between the image and the calligraphic drawing, but for me it doesn't work.., I mean, Inkscape doesn't do any intersection..Of course I select both objects before trying the intersection.

I attach a file.
