"pattern along path" without deform

Bug #171801 reported by Mcpower on 2007-03-07
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Hello Inkscape-Team,

is it possible to add to the "pattern along path"-dialog a checkbox "no
deformation" to set patterns along a path without any kind of deformation
of the nodes.

eventually a second checkbox to prevent transformation like rotation.

here is a "scatter" effect, derived from pathalongpath.py.

Notice that since no conversion to path is needed, the shapes, groups, clones, colors, gradients and so are all preserved :-)
It is a quick adapt from pathalongpath.py: no doubt it could be better done or optimized; however I think LPE will do that some day...

It uses "pathmodifier.py" that has to be adapted to the use of etree (see bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/182794)

Needed files:
pathmodifier.py --- same submission as in https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/182794
