SVG is "new" and not as stable as it should be, Inscape acts as a

from there saving as "SVG" gives mostly the best results.
when still having unexpected results, trie to convert to EMF (Window Meta
File) who is more stable and very well handled bij LO

hope it helps

Hi :)
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.

  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.
