Minitutorial: exporting multiple pages from Inkscape

Posted on Updated on

Hey There!

If you need more as one page in Inkscape and you don’t want to use Scribus, i found out an little workaround to create and export them. First you need this python script: http://ciantic.blogspot.com/2009/02/inkscape-slicer.html

Follow the instructions there and start Inkscape. In my example i use the DIN A2 Format. I want to export four DIN-A4 pages.
So,set your document size and create your guidelines and begin to import four svg files.
Then you have to add another layer an name it “slices” and draw rectangles (activate snapping !) over the pages. To export your pages go to Effects > Export > Slicer. Thats it !

finish

I think it could be helpful if you want to create a comic or coloring book or an complete magazine.
