Hi Drew, all,

Yeah we will get through the incompatibility problems with a little ingenuity I think =) ... I hope =(
But in the mean time, I just wanted to mention 2 things;

1. First off, thanks for picking up the motif and running with it
2. Don't feel like you need to use the motif as a prominent feature of your Design, it is just support decoration. And it doesn't have to be used the way it appears, I think every Design task is still going to rely on the Designer's judgement.

Having said that, I've knocked up something really quick in photoshop that might help communicate how I think the motif could "support" your postcard, rather than demand real-estate on it. I've uploaded it to the wiki here;

I've written up some draft guidelines for the motif's use on the wiki page;
But it's early days still.

Hope that helps?

Inkscape and Scribus import them correctly it seems, I don't see any

But Libreoffice only imports big black blocks when trying to embed the
svg file. Libreoffice also has problems importing regular SVG files it

best regards

BTW - I'm also using the svg file Nick posted to the wiki originally and
scaling then exporting to png using Inkscape and I don't follow the
problem with the transparency issue, the original and generated files
appear correct with handling of transparency.

Disregard that - trying just now to put that over some text, it appears
I see the problem now. But only for some of the triangles it seems,

Best wishes,
