Recently, I’ve been doing some vector and animations, It’s for my new android app for the stock market. Every time I open Inkscape1, it always greeted me with the default template. The next thing I do is change the document properties to the way I want, and it became a chore.

So, I searched the internet on how to basically set the default template to my liking.
Steps to change the default template
- Create a new document and set its document properties which can be found on
File > Document Properties.
- It will show a simple dialog which is this.
- In the dialog do what you like. Modify it based on what you want to see everytime you open Inkscape.
- After that, do a
File > Save As...and save it to your local user inkscape directory which will be in
- Save it as
default.svg. Then restart Inkscape for changes to take effect.
Enjoy that’s all. 🍂
