Summary0000058: cannot import svg files
DescriptionWhen I try to import a SVG file (created with Adobe Illustrator cs6) nothing appears in Birdfont. Copy&paste did not work either.

I tried the same in Birdfont version 1.1 because I remembered that ist worked there... here the svg appears but all messed up (see screenshot below)

Do I have to sve the svg with some special settings to import it?
TagsNo tags attached.

I think I found the bugs and I will release a version with the fixes as soon as possible. Thanks a lot for reporting this issue! SVG import is a very important functionality and I don't have Illustrator to do the testing.

I have uploaded a font with the SVG file imported — I think it looks right but please add a comment if you find more problems with the SVG import.

Thank you very much! your version looks perfect.
But how did you do that? When I try to import a svg it still turns out messed up or in most cases does not appear at all....

I have created a new version of BirdFont that fixes the bug. I will release it soon.
