Hey Everyone! Welcome to my new blog post. This blog includes a progress report of all that I’ve been able to achieve over the past eight weeks.
My internship is now more than halfway done and I’m making progress with each passing week. It has been a great learning experience till now.
My role as an intern!
My Outreachy project is Inkscape: On-canvas Align and Distribute Upgrade and my task is to develop new functionality that will allow the Inkscape users to align and distribute the selected items on the canvas itself. To achieve this, I have created a new mode in the select tool. When this mode is active, a new set of handles are visible on the screen. The users can select the items on the canvas and click on these handles to align the object with respect to the bounding box. These handles can also be dragged to resize the bounding box and change the distribution of the selected objects.
