    Fonts don't display when importing .svg

    Hi Tim, Thanks for your reply. I have already experimented with PDFs, but I can't seem to make the background transparent (which is what I want from the .svg file) using either R's pdf() or cairo_pdf() functions... hence my perserverence with the .svg format. Ben

    Thanks a lot for your help Matt, that's great! Will you be able to let me know when the fix is available?
  4. When I try to place an svg file ('HKA.svg', attached) in my Affinity Designer project, which I created using the svg() function in R, Designer seems not to display any of the text at all (see 'designer_screenshot.png'). If I open the same file with, say, GIMP, then the text displays fine (see 'GIMP_screenshot.png'). I'm running OSX Yosemite and R is generating .svg files using the cairo graphics library. I'm a bit of a novice with .svg files, but if I open the .svg file with a text editor I can't find any <font> elements, which I thought might have something to do with the problem... along the lines of Designer not being able to find the font definition file. But this was probably rather naive of me. Is this a bug, or am I doing something silly? Thanks a lot in advance, Ben HKA.svg
