Importing an Inkscape SVG

  • Hi,

    I have a vector file I would like to import into Videoscribe, but when I try it's not performing as expected.  The file was originally an .ai that I first imported into in InDesign and saved as an .eps so I could edit it in Inkscape.  Once I finished editing the file in Inkscape I saved it as a plain svg.  Then, I uploaded that file to Videoscribe and tried adding it to my canvas.  But, the drawing shows up very small with a lot of blank space around it.  See screenshot attached.

    Any ideas what's causing this issue and what I can do to resolve it?  Thanks in advance!    

  • Attach the actual SVG please.
    Also, if you are using an inkscape version newer than 0.48.5, uninstall it and install the older version.

  • Hi Mike,

    Here's the SVG.  Thanks again for the help!

  • The SVG contains a clipping path. I removed it and resaved it in AI using the recommended settings. New file is attached.
