inkscape padding or margin on export
How can I add padding or margin easily when exporting drawing or selection to bitmap?
What I've been doing is changing the width and x, y values when exporting but it's a lot of work when exporting many selections one by one.
Another technique is to use several rectangles used for cropping/exporting:
- Create a new layer, called Export for example. Place it beneath other layers.
- In this layer, create rectangles that will define what areas you will want to crop/export. Maybe white rectangles beneath your objects.
- Export each rectangle individually: select a rectangle, go to
File > Export bitmap(or Ctrl-E), en choose
- When you need to make modifications, you can either export a rectangle individually, or all at once (Select them all - the export dialogue box has a
Batch export all selected objectsoption). But exporting them once beforehand will determine their location and file name.
Tip: If you don't want have visible rectangles when exporting, you can select them, then hide them by hiding the export layer (but the rectangles will still be selected), then export them.
