when reporting bugs in the tracker, please ALWAYS:
- indicate the Inkscape version
- indicate the platform
- ATTACH THE FILE. Even if you think the file is "nothing special"
and the bug is obvious. A file's worth a thousand words. It's often
difficult to understand the bug explanations; attaching a file helps a
lot. More often than not, reported bugs are already fixed in CVS; if
you attach your file, a developer can quickly test it and close the
report. WIthout the file and with unclear report text, a developer has
to waste his time asking questions in the bug (which are not always
answered, btw, especially in anonymous reports).
So please do us (developers) a favor and always attach the file with
your problem. It's much better to attach an unneeded file than to fail
to attach a needed one. There are other things you might do to help
(such as a backtrace), but a test file is absolutely essential.
If Sourceforge won't let you attach a file (happens sometimes), post
it on the web somewhere and attach a link in comments to the bug.
