svg file loses all colours on import to Videoscribe

  • I have a simple svg file of some text in two colours. When I import it to videoscribe, it loses all colour and becomes black. Why is this? I'm attaching a screenshot showing the problem and the original svg. 


  • Hi,
    Because the SVG contains a custom style sheet or some other data that videoscribe does not recognize.

    Resave the SVG:
    1) in inkscape 0.48.5 or older, or
    2) in Illustrator version older than CC,  OR
    3) in newer versions of inkscape or illustrator using the settings recommended in tip 7 of the following thread:

  • Use these settings when saving from Illustrator:
