Creating custom maps - Version of Inkscape

Thu Aug 11, 2022 1:37 pm

Hi Team!

I followed the instructions of: https://www.highcharts.com/docs/maps/create-custom-maps
and downloaded Inkscape. Unfortunately the latest version does look very different, and I
can't find this "snap to path" option.

That is assuming, that "snap to path" will allow me to define a region with use parts of a border
of another region. Like region a and b share some part of border, so b starts somewhere attached
to a and ends somewhere else attached to a.

Can you tell me, which Inkscape version this instruction is based on? I would rather download
the older version then :-)

Thanks
Regards

Hello,

This article is deprecated. As you can see in the screenshot in the lower right corner, the date is 2014. Probably that version of Inkscape you won't be able to run on newer operating systems. Rather, the option should be in this program, but possibly under a different name or somewhere else. Unfortunately, help with this program goes beyond the scope of our support

However, I would recommend using the newer programs such as Illustrator or the free alternative Figma but that is my only opinion.

Let me know if you have any further questions!
Best regards!
