View Full Version : Ungrouping Lines in Inkscape

10-06-2013, 12:22 PM

Hello, so i just figured out how to cut a line in two. (Shift + B) and then jointing one of the halfs with another one (Shift + J).

Problem is my previous lines are still grouped with the new construction. How do i fix this?

What i basically want is to fill my new Object with a color but in order to do that i need to group only, my new object.

Thanks in advance.

As with all such questions, it would be very nice if you published the solution you found. Perhaps someone else had the same problem, and staring at a big bold "fixed" isn't going to fix it for them.

Are the lines grouped (will show the message "Group of x objects..." in the status bar when selected) or just segments of the same path (will show the message "Path (x nodes)..." in the status bar)?

If the former, ungroup with ^g (ctrl+g) and if the latter, ^K (shift+ctr+k). If you do break apart the segments, they will all get broken apart, so paths with holes in the (like a doughnut) will need the hole recombined.
