Inkscape: Change Arrowhead color

Filed under: Linux,Uncategorized,Windows — Tags: , , , , , — Christopher Kramer @ 18:55

In Inkscape, a great open source vector graphics program, when you change the stroke color of a path, the arrow heads still remain black. But there is a way to change their color, although quite unintuitive.

This is how it looks like:

Inkscape: arrows with same arrowhead color as the path

Inkscape: arrows can have the same arrowhead color as the path

And this is how its done:

  1. Mark the Path you want to change the color of the arrowhead
  2. “Extensions”
  3. “Modify Path”
  4. “Color Markers to Match Stroke”

That’s it!

inkscape_arrows_color

Update: Inkscape 0.91

In Inkscape 0.91, this problem is “fixed”: The arrowhead automatically gets the Stroke-color assigned and the extension mentioned above is gone. But:

Sometimes when I change the stroke color, the arrowhead does not get updated. In this case, you can adjust the arrowhead color like this:

Select the arrow, double click the color next to “Stroke:” on the lower left of the screen, it opens the window to adjust the stroke color and without doing anything in this window, it magically adjusts the color of the arrowhead.

Outlook 2010: Nachrichtenkopfzeilen (Header) anzeigen

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Christopher Kramer @ 18:15

So kann man sich in Outlook 2010 die Header anzeigen:

  • Nachricht öffnen (doppelt anklicken).
  • Bei “Kategorien” auf den kleinen Pfeil unten rechts klicken
    outlook_header
  • Unter “Internetkopfzeilen” finden sich die Header:
    outlook_header2

“Kategorien” wäre das letzte, wo ich danach gesucht hätte (bzw. habe). Ich finde das extrem unintuitiv platziert, wahrscheinlich ist aber vor allem die deutsche Übersetzung (“Kategorien”) hier besonders schlecht.

Vielleicht verkürzt dieser Beitrag ja jemandem die verzweifelte Suche.
