Attached is the scalable vector graphics (.SVG ) source file for the User Interface I proposed for LinuxCNC.
I appreciate the help of many of the LinuxCNC forum members.

Thank you.

Inkscape 0.92.3 was used in the creation of the interface.
inkscape.org/

If you are new to Inkscape or SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) these are the source files somewhat like Adobe Illustrator from which bitmap icons, like Photoshop files, can be made of almost any resolution or size, from large or small. There are about a dozen layers which can be hidden or shown, locked or unlocked, in different combinations which make up the interface panel drawings, which largely follow the interface design.

Although the drawing of the interface drawing method is resolution independent, the interface is numerically scaled for a 1920 x 1080 proportion screen so that a programmer will have be able to refer to the file for approximate icon locations--even though the icon could be scaled and exported for a 4k screen, a billboard, or a postage stamp. The svg file format is very much like Adobe Illustrator, or a 2-D CAD program.

Several free and open OpenSans fonts are used throughout the interface. If you don't install them, font sizes will likely not be correct. I tried to include them, but the resultant file was too large to be uploaded here. They can be downloaded individually, or found elsewhere.
OpenSans on Github: github.com/google/fonts/tree/master/apache/opensans

Donations might be sent for LinuxCNC. Ask on the forums. I am sure they have web expenses for this forum.

Edit: Thanks Tommylight and Andypugh for pointing out and covering for my documentation omission.

All the screens are there in separate layers of the SVG.

If you open the .svg file in Inkscape you can turn on and off layer visibility using the layers pallette (Ctrl-Shift-L)
