I’m working on a panel in InkScape. I set the height to 128.5mm as per the Panel Guide. I’m trying to account for the presence of screws in the design for the top and bottom of the panel. To do this, I need the height of the screw image.
So I opened ScrewSilver.svg from the Component Library and checked the height of the screw: 3.439mm. However after accounting for this size in my panel, compiling, and checking the render inside Rack, I find that the screw is larger than expected.
So I went back and instead used the document height of ScrewSilver.svg: 3.96846mm (it’s not a nice number in pixels either: 14.99890). It turns out that this is still smaller than the actual rendered height.
I did some poking around in Rack’s code to try to find the right answer, but haven’t been able to find it. What’s the appropriate size to account for?
