This area is for listing the bugs which should be fixed before the 1.0 release of Inkscape. This suggestion list is based on the idea that our 1.0 release should be released as if it were a commercial-grade product. Ideally this means fixing most bugs relating to design workflow, and is not intended to request new features in Inkscape. Let's fix what's broken first!

To keep track of which team member posts what, please put your name above your list. All bugs listed here should have links to bug tracker bug reports.

C.Rogers List: Persistent problems in production workflow and teaching new users & designers to use Inkscape

Duplication Bugs:

  • Copy/Paste clones makes them smaller (needs bug tracker link)
  • Selection precision fails when zoomed out (needs bug tracker link)
  • Selection changes when Space is used to stamp/duplicate an object near another object (needs bug tracker link)

Grids and Rulers:

  • Grid defaults to px measurements even when document units are mm (needs bug tracker link)
  • Ruler marks do not line up with grid (needs bug tracker link)
  • Display does not refresh after some undo operations (needs bug tracker link)


  • Clipping shapes vanish when a clipped object is ungrouped (needs bug tracker link)
  • SVG linking creates a low-res raster of the svg instead of proper linking. (needs bug tracker link)

Text System

  • Text which overflows the text box loses linebreaks from text pasted into textbox (needs bug tracker link)
  • Inkscape crashes on copy (text) with nothing selected (needs bug tracker link)
  • Text size should be a spin button (needs bug tracker link)
  • Adjustable line spacing gets stuck with no units selected (needs bug tracker link)
  • Default pasted text size is HUGE (needs bug tracker link)
  • Text box leaves artefacts when resized (needs bug tracker link)


  • Inkscape crash dialog is unresponsive, and must wait for the system to kill it (Ubuntu) (needs bug tracker link)
  • Inkscape should offer to recover the previously working file after a crash. (needs bug tracker link)


  • Inkscape takes a long time to show the UI, and when loading, there is no indication that it's loading something (needs bug tracker link)


  • "Paste Style" makes some things vanish (needs bug tracker link)


  • Inkscape's "bevels","Non-realistic 3D Shaders","Ridges", "Scatter", "Shadows and Glows" filter sets produce objectively terrible results, and should be redone to match the quality of other Inkscape filters, or removed from the default Inkscape set. (needs bug tracker link)
