Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Sometimes I need divide line into three or more
segments with equal sizes. Please make tool for doing
I know that is also possible to implement Bezier curve
dividing into segments by setting proper intervals for
t in B(t).

Many thanks.

This is unlikely to be implemented in the way you describe.

I can't simulate it using the 'Cut Paths operation either!
(Cut paths seems to lop off rather than divide, this is
arguably surprising behaviour and therefore a bug).

If you really need this in Inkscape, I suggest that you:

1) Organise the requests so that there is one per entry in
the tracker.

2) Devise a UI for your 'Carving Knife' or 'Chain Saw' tool:
Possibly harder than you might think ...

I can't see this being made a priority item, but you never know.

In the mean time, you might find that in degenerate cases
such as a vertical or horizontal line, you might be able to
run a perl script on the XML.

Alternatively, one of the Power Geometry technologies,
might be of help.

Thank you for taking the time to report this feature request and helping to make Inkscape better. You requested this feature a long while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering; is this still on your wishlist? Can you try with latest Inkscape release and see if recent improvements have obsoleted your request? Thanks in advance.
