Shapes not showing in Inkscape
I try to draw a square or circle and it just doesn't work. I know it should have a fill and stroke, and even when I select colors, it's not showing. All I see is a square depicting the area where the shape has been placed, as if it was in a different layer or something.
How can I show the shapes again?
Make sure there is not simply another object in front of your shape. Raise to top to see if that's the case
Make sure it actually has a fill and/or stroke
Make sure the opacity of fill and stroke is not
If the stroke/fill color is a gradient, make sure that it does not end outside of the shape
Make sure the layer is visible
Make sure the layer opacity is not
Set Display Mode to
Hidecheckmark in object properties
Release the mask to see if the object was masked with a disjunct shape
