Error embedding SVG files from Inkscape

Error embedding SVG files from Inkscape

Post by » Tue, 24 Feb 2009 18:40:14

I draw some SVG graphics with Inkscape, and when I embed them into a SWF with
the command-line flex compiler 3.2, the embedded Sprites are not correct. The
reference documentation alludes to a partial support for gradients, but does
not go into any details. It seems my gradients are not "displaced" correctly.
Of course, they are perfect when viewed with any standard viewer (from Google
Chrome to Batik 1.2 Swing application).

1. No lines in SVG when viewed in Inkscape

2. CTAN has a new package: svg-inkscape

This package should within a day be at your local mirror.

Summary description: How to include an SVG image in *** using Inkscape
License type: lppl

Announcement text:
This work demonstrates the use of SVG images in *** documents.
Using the PDF + *** output option of Inkscape 0.48, it is
possible to include SVG images in *** and have LaTeX
typeset the text. This results in the same text style in the
images as in the text. Moreover, *** commands can be used
in the image's text, such as math or references.
The document also describes how to automate the conversion
from SVG to PDF+LaTeX using Inkscape.

This package is located at
. More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to
appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group .
