Path Operations

Masking / Clipping

  • A new option to preserve clips / masks when ungrouping objects has been added (Edit → Preferences → Behavior → Clippaths and Masks: When ungroup, clip/mask is preserved in childrens). The option is active by default. This means that when you now ungroup a group that has been clipped, the elements inside it will inherit the clip. Previously, the clip was removed and everything became un-clipped. To go back to previous default behavior, deactivate this new option. (MR #3564) -->

Dialogs

Fill and stroke Dialog

New pattern editor was added in to UI. You can preview patterns change name, size, rotation, offset, gaps and colors for some specific patterns. We also added collections of patterns ~paint/pattern.svg so its easier to be organized . Since this allows having much more patterns preset we also added search function .

Symbols

You can drag and drop symbols on canvas and they are going to be place where you dropped them
