Is there a method create a line made with the Bezier tool to go from thick to thin as in starting at the beginning at 10 pt and ending at 1pt?

Thx

Not that I'm aware of. You can get a similar effect by playing with the nib shape under outline settings.

Usually what I'll do is make my outline as fat as I want the fattest point to be, then convert it to an object and start deleting nodes/tightening it up on the skinny end.

or, you can create a line you want and apply an outline to it. Convert outline to object and edit the nodes to get the look you want.

Hi,

I am stuck with a similar problem and wondered if you can help please?
I have a object, that I traced, but the end result has a outline that is nearly 2cm thick, which I would like to change to 1cm thick. How would I do this, to make the design oultines thinner, but keeping it the same size please?

Many thanks
Sharon

Press F12 key on your keyboard, a window will open, then you can adjust from there. Or if you have traced it, look at your tool bars , there should be a place to adjust there as well.

Artistic media or editing the nodes are good suggestions. I would like to point out that Inkscape has a preset option on the bezier tool to dictate shape. Dictating say a triangle shape causes your paths to be fat on one end and skinny on the other. I use Draw primarily, but like Inkscape for a few things, this being one. It is easy enough to start in Inkscape and pull it into Draw to finish.
