Output Pro

An extension to export print-ready documents from Inkscape

Introduction

With this extension you will be able to export your Inkscape documents into a variety of formats and colormodes. As it initial and main goal,Inkscape Output Pro export into the CMYK colormode, compatible with the press and graphic industry standards.

It is possible to use specific ICC profiles, set other colormodes than RGB and CMYK, like Grayscale and Lab, set specific JPEG configurations, insert pre-press marks and even more.

Installation

Linux

First, make sure you have Libcanberra and PyQt4 installed

sudo apt install libcanberra-gtk-module libcanberra-gtk3-module
sudo apt install python-qt4

The copy outputpro.inx, outputpro.py and the outputpro directory to:

/usr/share/inkscape/extensions

If you don't have root access or only want the files to be available to the current user:

<YOUR HOME DIR>/.config/inkscape/extensions

Note:

I'm on elementary OS Juno and I had to install gtk2-engines-pixbuf to get rid of an error message after exporting:

sudo apt install gtk2-engines-pixbuf

This might be true for all Ubuntu based distros as well.

Windows

This might work, but has not been tested yet. To-do.

macOS

To-do.

Important

As the orignal author abandoned the project. It is my intention to keep it working in recent versions of Inkscape.
