I’m a newbie to designing things in Inkscape.
I’m developing a website, in which the tabbed content will have icons.
Some of the icons I designed, I see, aren’t uniformly
32px x 32px, when I set the X-axis width to
32px. I want all my icons to be
32px x 32px, because all the sites I’ve been studying, use
32px x 32pxand the benefit I see in that is uniformity, and that it’s a W3C standard or something.
Anyways, here’s my icon:
How can I resize it to
32px x 32pxwithout the malforming weirdness?
TBH, I tried setting the dimensions manually without preserving the original aspect ratio, but still the thing wouldn’t be
32px x 32pxexactly.
Rotate the icon clockwise until the stem of the magnifying glass is at a 45 degree angle. That will give it more of a square composition to begin with, and then you’ll be able to scale it with without distorting anything.
