SVG images created in CorelDraw X7 coming up solid black

  • Hello - I'm new to both VS and CorelDraw. I just saved a 3 layer CorelDraw sketch as an SVG, but when imported into VS it is all solid black. I've seen this problem/solution mentioned with Adobe Illustrator, but not CorelDraw.

    My CorelDraw X7 SVG save options look like this:

    Help me, Obi-Wan, etc. I have an impending deadline and I'm trying to teach myself both software packages by the end of the week.

  • Hi Eric,

    We do not use Corel draw here but a similar effect happened in Adobe Illustrator if you has CSS settings set a certain way.

    My guess is from the screen shot of the save options, you may need to change the styling options from what they currently are.

  • Thanks, guys. I ended up exporting to an SVG and changing the "Styling Options in the save as dialogue box to "Presentation Attributes." That solved THAT problem, but now I have an issue with the sketch rendering, which I'll post under a different subject.
