Multipage extension for Inkscape

⇠ Back to Blog:Hacks

Inkscape has a multipage extension: Thanks to its authors: Cosmin Popescu!

In my case the default shortcuts were not recognized by the system. To change them, first identify the key symbol with xev. For instance, The '3/Av Pag' of my keyboard outputs:

KeyRelease event, serial 40, synthetic NO, window 0x5400001,
    root 0xd4, subw 0x0, time 5270752, (318,-162), root:(320,503),
    state 0x0, keycode 89 (keysym 0xff9b, KP_Next), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XFilterEvent returns: False

From which we get KP_Next as the symbol to be used instead of Page_Down.

Replace these as you wish in keys.xml file of the extension, reinstall, and start browsing through the pages.
