inkscape hacks and extensions

List Fonts (April 2010)

This small extension will let give you a list of all the fonts in a document. This is particularly useful when you are moving an SVG file from one computer to another and don't have all the proper fonts installed.

Download: inkscape_list_fonts_2010-04-21.zip

To install it on Linux, Unix or Mac OS X, fire up a terminal and unzip the content of this file inside of your home's .inkscape/extensions folder. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can try the following lines (without the '$'):

$ mkdir -p ~/.inkscape/extensions
$ cd ~/.inkscape/extensions
$ wget http://tamentis.com/hacks/inkscape/files/inkscape_list_fonts_2010-04-21.zip
$ unzip -o inkscape_list_fonts_2010-04-21.zip

You can then access this feature through the Effects -> Text -> List Fonts menu. If you can't get it to work, just drop me a mail.
