I just recently came across the Inkscape Open Symbols library project and could kick myself for not finding it sooner. There are thousands of freely1 available symbols which are very handy for using in web or print design jobs but were always a faff to import into Inkscape.
This weekend, the nearest Saturday/Sunday to the anniversary of Robert Burns' birth, will be a busy one for YesScotland events all across Scotland. So, of course, we are having an event locally which means we needed to get out all the flyers, leaflets, banners and Yes boards. This was fine except the person who has most of the materials has gone away on a three week international holiday!
