What does Inkscape not do well?
The main disadvantage is the low quality of the prints in general is a very useful tool and allows you to achieve good designs.
What do you wish you had known about Inkscape before using?
I believe that the learning curve is the main element to overcome in many cases, it needs to be done through clear, summarized and effective communication, which helps audiences understand ideas, plans or concepts that can sometimes be complex to understand. That is, it requires combining functionality and aesthetics in the graphics.
