What are the benefits of SVG ?

Post by Clive » Fri Jun 20, 2014 10:05 am

To get this topic started, I'll throw out this question to the QCAD community.

What are the benefits of using SVG ?
For the best support please state your operating system, QCAD version and add any supporting DXF/DWG files, screenshots etc...

QCAD does not facilitates export as .EMF .WMF etc. Via .SVG export one can use another program to accomplish these file formats. I used inkscape as an interface.
But thereby it turns out that the SVG export of QCAD is not right. In my drawing there are texts. These texts are in the SVG file, but without there coördinates. So they do not appear in inkscape. So is this a bug?
I upload the .SVG file.

Carolus: if you are experiencing any problems, please attach always the original DXF file, thanks.

Andrew, you are asking me to attach the .DXF file too. I attach the .DXF file and the .SVG file as well.

BUT there is a strange thing: when I open the .DXF file which I saved at 6 jan 16, QCAD opens it without objections, but I don't see my drawing at the screen. What do I wrong?

Originally this drawing was made with the free version. But I bought the professional version and saved the drawing with this version (3.12.4.0)

Thanks for your work.
