I just thought I'd share some Inkscape extensions I've created for myself with a PnP focus.

You will find them at https://svn.xp-dev.com/svn/razorfoss/branches/InkscapePlugin... xp-dev removed their free svn hosting so now you'll find the plugin at https://sourceforge.net/p/razorfoss/svn/HEAD/tree/trunk/Inks...

They include
TuckboxExtension
Creates templates for
- Tuckboxes
- Matchboxes
- Telescoping boxes
- Deck bands/box sleeves

Layout Guides
2 separate extensions that will create guides/crop marks (inluding bleed and margins) for
- Cards, either simple grid or "folding" style
- Hex tiles

InsertPaperTemplate (BETA)
- Inserts various sized rectangles for standard paper/card sizes. ( is use this one when I'm just messing about to test things for size etc)
- It's still BETA because it doesn't always work with svg's created in older versions of Inkscape (because of the whole 0.91 -> 0.92 dpi thing)

To install just drop the inx+py files into your Inkscape extension dir
Linux: ~/.config/inkscape/extensions
Windows: [Drive]:\Program Files\Inkscape\share\extensions
Mac: ???


All the extensions should appear under the Extensions->Boardgames menu

Wow! Impressive!! surprise

I already have an 8 card template I'm happy with but the extension to insert the grids is really cool.

However, I'm especially thrilled with the tuckbox and matchbox templates, as I will probably start using this.

Note: When I insert the matchbox it's also adding the tuckbox, so both templates are being inserted. The other two options work fine. Does it do this on your end?

Thanks so much for sharing these! thumbsup

Yes that's intentional. I use these for money/resource tokens etc. Basically the drawer acts as a token tray.

Having said that I'm just as likely to use a small telescoping box nowadays.

I think I see. So, the matchbox fits inside the tuck box?
