Hi :)
I know all this got a little off-topic in some ways but it was really
helpful to me !  :)

I think it is good to have a mailing list that deals with other office
issues.  We have helped people deal with issues that are really their OS
rather than really being a LibreOffice issue (although that is sometimes
just by sign-posting them to relevant other forums).

It seems like website editing is in the job description of a much wider
range of normal office workers now.  I've seen it in the job description of
marketing jobs and for a straight "Receptionist".  It is still a little
unusual, of course, but editing content is becoming easier for normal
office workers with all the wysiwyg editors and such.  Of course design and
maintenance still needs a fair bit of expertise in IT but content is
hopefully becoming easier.

So, many thanks to Paul!
Regards from
Tom :)

There may be a newer and cleaner way to distribute your drawing If your
willing to spend a little time with HTML5
From Inkscape save as "plain svg"
Create html page using "object"
 <object type="image/svg+xml" data="your_file_here.svg"></object>
Don't forget to set size of image (haven't done this myself, but it is
HTML code to tell what size the svg should open at.)
Use Firefox to test webpage.

At that point you can distribute to any place there is a FireFox browser.

Others will be able to use InkScape to modify original file.  I am not
sure about password file locking.

There are plenty of examples of how to do this on the web. Take a look at

I have not done a full comparison between the original InkScape and
FireFox images. It does seem to work well.
I have not tested in other browsers.
I have not tested printing from FireFox.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info Stuart, its certainly been interesting reading.
I am not so worried about PDF. I know that the built in PDF does not
function to produce EPS as vector and I am not worried about preview. I
have EPS without recognisable preview in many cases so just show as a near
blank frame.
I am more concerned that the EPS is not output to postscript so does not
print on postscript devices or in postscript post processing prior to

Believe, on OS X an EPS with a preview used in Writer, that preview gets
clobbered and not-regenerated during PS printing. Lack of prefered
