This is why I do not use Vector Graphics in my documents. I export them to JPG, PNG, or GIF, and use them.

This solves a whole lot of headaches on my part and compatibility issues with the people who get these files in ODT or DOC formatted versions.

I like Inkscape, but I tend to export those drawings to PNG instead of SVG. Actually, for some reason, I have difficult printing correctly from Inkscape on my Linux Mint system. So I export it to PNG and then print that file.

Hi :)
Ahh, i have trouble with the Svg output from Inkscape sometimes.  I suspect
it is a user-error (a classic pebkac probably).  There are 2 versions of
Svg output, one more standard and the other easier to pull back in and
re-edit, and i think one of them goes a bit funny with any lettering.

I haven't explored this enough to really figure out what is going on yet
but i'm a total noob to Inkscape anyway.
Regards from
Tom :)

Most of my data sheets have EPS images (for the vector graphics) output

Not sure what CAD software is used, if it is ACAD and the work flow is
PSOUT in ACAD and then import in LO, you may want to consider changing your
flow: Acad PSOUT > Inkscape save (SVG) > LO.

I understand it is an extra step but it will give you great post edit
possibilities in Inkscape if needed, SVG is a clean format and LO supports
it pretty good (except for fancy fonts and effects like drop shadows). Best
of all: Geometry is pretty well preserved.

Two examples from CAD: Seamless
into LO. Shadow
becomes solid in LO, so be it.
