Point on the current template selector

The current system in order to choose a template is deprecated. It's simply a list in the menu (see picture).

  1. You can't parametrize anything (width, height, border, ...).
  2. You can't easily add templates.
  3. You can't visualize templates before choice.
  4. The list don't respect any order.
  5. Templates are not categorized (CD, DVD, screen, ...).
  6. Templates names are ugly :
    • Some contains _ between words (like icon_16x16).
    • Some templates are in french (like "Défaut") and others in english (like "business_card_...").
    • Some templates have incomprehensible names (like "default_pt").
  7. Template list is too long. It can cause problem for netbooks.
  8. You can't make template be one of your favorites.
  9. Commons templates of the "Document properties dialog" are not present (like A3, B2, US Letter, ...)
  10. You can't choose the units for your new drawing.

Categories names


Do we have to traduce categories names ? If yes, we can add new attributes in svg files, like :

   inkscape:template:category-fr="Fond d'écran"

Should we use underscore between words ? like :


or can we simply use:

   inkscape:template:category-fr="Paper sizes"
