Exporting an object as svg from inkscape


I know that Inkscape does not have the ability to export selected objects as svg, but is there a workaround that people have found that works?

Accepted Answer

A straight-forward method is the following:

  1. Select the object(s) to export.
  2. "Resize page to drawing or selection" (File → Document Properties) or Ctrl+Shift+R.
  3. "Invert selection" (Edit → Invert selection) or !, and Del all other objects.
  4. "Save As" with Ctrl+Shift+S.
  5. Select Optimized SVG as the format if you want to use it on the web.

Not as quick as I would like but quicker than creating a new document for each graphic that you want to export.
