    Another new version with icons for the tools used and the forest path effect example is now more detailed.

    The section on path effects is now much more detailed, the forest path effect example now has more detailed illustrations, and I fixed a serious mistake in the instructions.

    Another update. I've added a section describing how to build a basic layer tree, and how to add a clipping path to a layer (which requires using the XML Editor).

    I'm not entirely happy with this bit so any comments are welcome.

    An alternate way to get the same result that I have been using:

    ctrl+a to select all the items in the active layer.
    ctrl+g to group them
    Draw the clipping mask.
    ctrl+a to select the group and mask
    Object->Clip->Set

    Now with the object still selected, enter the xml editor (shift+ctrl+x) and edit the inkscape:groupmode and change it from "maskhelper" to "layer" and it will magically become a sub-layer of the existing layer.

    It you want it to be its own layer (not a sub-layer), use the XML editor and drag it to the root.

    Not sure if it is simpler or not, but a different way to do it.

    Thanks for the tutorial (which I haven't quite caught up on). And GO LATEX!

    Thank you for this - I just started learning about Inkscape, and this is nicely done. Very clean document! When I finish getting the basics down, I look forward to digging into this deeper. Repped!
