Hi :)
It could be that.  It happens with images i resize and clear the meta-data
from in order to tidy-up logos.  I don't have a good example to test nor
time to test at the moment.  Sorry!

I am fairly convinced there is just something really dumb and obvious that
i am doing wrong as a total noob.  It could be that the fonts i was using
were MS copyrighted fonts.  Probably Steve could figure it out and fix in
just a few minutes (or not even suffer from the problem at all).

Yes, i like those 2 options for types of Svg.  It's a bit like Photoshop
having a .Psd format or Gimp having a .Xcf so that it's easy to make minor
changes without it being a big drama.  I dunno if one of them is keeping my
error and the other smooths it out or what or if format is nothing to do
with it.

Regards from
Tom :)

You mean
plain_SVG ? And Adobe software also puts a lot of binary code in SVG,
I've noticed that exploring SVG's from WikiPedia - perhaps bitmap previews.
In Inkscape, the XML editor (Edit > XML Editor of Shift+Ctrl+x) shows all
the extra entries.

But I assume LO simply ignores these namespaces and parses only true SVG
code. No problems so far except for funny positioning in LO, caused by bad
sized pages in SVG, Inkscape, File > Document Properties > Resize page... >
Resize page to drawing. May it be that that causes problems in LO?

Ahh, i have trouble with the Svg output from Inkscape sometimes.  I
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.

 Most of my data sheets have EPS images (for the vector graphics) output
from our cad system. Up until LO4.1 went to 4.2.. these were printed

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
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
it pretty good (except for fancy fonts and effects like drop shadows).
of all: Geometry is pretty well preserved.

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