Summary0000036: Can't see any SVG files on import
DescriptionGreat software and trying out before I buy a commercial license.

I followed steps to import glyph created in Illustrator. I exported SVG file and when I hit 'Edit > Import SVG' its not showing any files at all, not even the exported file. I'm also unable to open my computers folders to access files. For example I created a folder inside 'my documents' called 'glyphs' and when I double click on my documents in Birdfont nothing happens (doesn't show any hierarchy).

Also when I save a file and I go to open, the file is not showing in the folder at all.
TagsNo tags attached.

Thank you for the report. Which version of Birdfont do you have? Can you send me an example file in SVG format?

I downloaded the latest release through your site today. I've attached the template svg file I created as part of the tutorial and the glyph I wanted to import.

I could reproduce one problem with the file dialog and will work a solution.

I believe this problem is solved in 0.47.5. Please add a note if the new version can't import files correctly.
