Apologies for cross-posting here after trying inkscape-users. Perhaps this is
the correct forum.
I use Inkscape 0.45 (Feb 3 2007) on a Kubuntu Dapper Linux PC. It is a great
program and thanks for it! I have hit a minor but niggling problem.
I am trying to get a tight bounding box around a single exclamation mark input
as text at large font size, selected, converted from text to path, and saved as
a PDF, from within Inkscape.
I have used
Path-> Object to path
File -> Document properties -> Page -> Fit page to selection
and exported as PDF.
There seems to be a margin beyond the object at the bottom, and the top of the
object is clipped, very likely by the same amount. This is seen when viewing the
exported PDF at 6400% in Acroread.
The dotted box that appears in Inkscape when the object is selected appears
perfect. The settings for snapping to grid/object/path have been toggled with no
change in behaviour of the exported file.
These problems persist for any text string, regardless of font, converted to
paths, and exported as a PDF.
I can post PDFs illustrating this if told where to post them.
Is this a bug, and if so, is there a workaround? Otherwise, how may I avoid it?
