Strange Idea #84 - Advanced Path ControlI think most of us have figured it out by now--Inkscape needs a width tool.More Like This
I can see people pointing at Power Strokes right now, going, "Are you blind or something?"
No. I hate Power Strokes the current Power Stroke width interpolators--they usually end up doing something like this:
That is a completely excessive amount of nodes for a two point path--In fact, that particular path could be represented with a skeletal path effect and look exactly the same:
Do you see what I'm getting at here? Having fewer nodes decreases calculation time on a path when you are editing it.
Now, I suppose, to the main proposal here.
2 new LPEs (Live Path Effects)
Advanced Skeletal Control (should be developed first)
Advanced Path Control (after ASC is fully developed and debugged)
1 new tool - the Width tool - works in conjunction with these two LPEs
Advanced Skeletal Control - works with the Width Tool to craft specific control poi

A character should always have at least two flaws. Especially a main character. This way, your reader can watch them grow and grow with them. If you have a series, I would choose 5 flaws so once your character defeats one flaw, they can start working on the next, just like in real life. Choose one flaw to be the maj
