|Summary||0000094: Can't Import SVG Files Into Birdfont|
|Description||I get blank output when importing an svg into Birdfont. I am using version 2.10.2.|
By the way, the link for version 1.9 for Windows is corrupted, was going to try and use a previous version but can't find a mirror anywhere else.
|Tags||No tags attached.|

Thank you for the report. Can you attach a few SVG files with this problem?
The download link seems to work for me, do you get a 404 or is the file corrupt?
Hi, I attached an svg file already, do you need another one? Yes I can download it fine but it's corrupted.
||Thank you. I didn't see the file.|
||Somewhat related, copy and paste of objects from CorelDraw doesn't work either. I'm sure it's the same with Illustrator but don't have a copy anymore. I think these two issues occur at the same time from other reports I've seen on here that's why I thought I'd mention it.|

The file can be imported on my computer but the glyph is very bug and far up in the right corner. You can move it to the baseline with Menu -> Edit -> Select All Paths and Menu -> Edit -> Move to Baseline
||Well I'll be. Do you know why it's so large and not properly aligned? I used the SVG template in the birdfont wiki so shouldn't the proportions be the same?|
I think it might be a bug in CorelDraw but I don't have a copy of this program.
You can probably work around this issue if you put the glyph in the upper left corner of the page.
||What about the size issue? Just make it smaller in Corel?|
||Yes, you need to find the right size but when you have done that will your SVG file be a good template for CorelDraw.|
||Argh, resizing in Corel distorts the object too much. I had to make it drastically smaller and it's already in a 160x600 resolution document. Now it takes up 1/30 of that document. I really want to make birdfont work though :P|
||I totally understand your frustration. You might be able to work around the issue if you open your SVG file with Inkscape. A third option is to import a large version of your work and scale it down with the transformation tools in the overview tab.|
