Video Tutorial - Setting Inkscape's Default Page Properties

When I was making last night's video, I thought to myself "maybe some people will wonder how Inkscape always starts up with a 12x12 page on my computer" and thought I might do a short video on how to set that up. Then today, someone asked about that very thing, so I knew it was a good idea! :)

Thx Dan, for this tip and all the other goodies!
For Mac users, the process is similar but to find the defalt.svg file, go to the Finder, Choose "Go to Folder" from the go menu and type
/Applications/Inkscape.app/Contents/Resources/templates
That'll put you in the right folder and you can follow Dan's instrux from there.

Dan said...

Thanks for the Mac tips Kay! :)

You make me feel so smart when I can actually do this stuff! I was able to follow right along with the video and make the changes. Thanks for helping to reduce Inkscape's intimidation factor. Hope your toothache is better soon!
