Transparent tool & Gradient tool are incompatible (Exporting SVG format)

Recommended Posts

If you apply to an object a gradient and then add a modification using the transparent tool the result will be one gradient predominating the other after exporting using SVG format
Only works if there is neither a gradient or a transparency applied, not both together

Hi Larryh,

Again this is a limitation of the SVG format. The Fill and Transparency gradients in Designer are completely separate, however SVG can only hand a Linear Gradient, of which the transparency is applied to the 'stop-opacity' of each point of the Linear Gradient. This means that the way you are using them (especially in two different directions) mean you will not get the same results.

If you set your export to Rasterise Unsupported Features it will rasterise those areas to keep the look, however I can understand that is not always desired.
