Hello everyone,

I am trying to draw an analog clock face in inkscape, but I am having trouble with the symmetry and getting all of the numbers to lay out and be spaced correctly. I am also new to Inkscape, so I don’t know a lot about the program but am learning. Can anyone give me a link for a tutorial or offer any suggestions as to how this might be accomplished? Thanks in advance for any help.

I just googled inkscape because I was curious. There’s several sites with tutorials. Maybe one of them will help.

Use a different program to lay out the face with numbers where you want them…like Sketchup which has 3D text fonts. Then export it as an image file and import it to inkscape (if you must) and make what ever changes you want (I can’t imagine what).

Where you just trying to use an application that nobody on LJ was familiar with so as to make the task more difficult or what?
