Inkscape is most easily customizable through the Inkscape Preferences dialog ( → (Shift+Ctrl+P)).
There are too many options in the dialog to cover here. It is worthwhile to scan through the options under each entry. The most important options have already been mentioned in the text. They include: Setting the Rotation snap angle and other scaling parameters under the Step entry. Determining if transformations should be Optimized or Preserved under the Transforms entry. Setting the Default export resolution under the Misc entry.
All the preference are stored in the file
preferences.xml located on
~/.inkscape/ (v0.46) or
~/.config/inkscape/ (v0.47) and on
There are quite a
few preferences, some undocumented, that are accessible
only by hand-editing this file. See the
next section for some of these.
