Hello, I'm quite new to inkscape, and I'm trying to use it to include graphics in pdflatex/beamer presentation. Thus I need to export the graphics in pdf. It works well, but my 3cm square figure take a whole pdf page ! I guess I could crop the resulting pdf with imagemagick, but I also wonder if there is a way to do it directly from inkscape. the command line options such as --export-area-drawing seem to only apply to bitmap export Any hint ? (I'm using inkscape 0.43 from debian testing, and I'm not in the list) Thanks a lot in advance -- SÃ©bastien BARTHÃ?LEMY

A shot in the dark, but you could try mkaing the size of the canvas that of your object? I'm not sure how PDF would handle such a thing, but that would at least force the size of the page to that of the object, and as such (I would expect it that way) the resulting PDF would have the same size?

I have the same problem... The working around I found is to save your figures in eps (with the right size) and then use epstopdf to convert it to pdf. The pdf size is then the same than the eps one... Anyone know how to make it directly from inkscape?
