Hi,

Is there a way to make change only in a Svg (Black square svg) which is inside a Svg but without losing properties of the Svg which contrains the Black square svg ? I know that if you duplicate a Svg the changes will be applied to all instances, but is there a trick?

(I want to work with Svg not symbols)

Below a picture to better understand

Thank you

Yes, you'll have to Embed the Black Square SVG file twice, once to be left alone and once to be edited.

Having said that I should point out that a lot depends on the type/flavour/style of SVG and where it was generated. If it was made by Adobe Illustrator I would say all bets are off, Adobe does things to standard export formats that only Adobe software can subsequently work with.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

I tried to import twice the Square svg but it applies in all instances

You should be able to use File > Place twice, and get two unrelated copies. But if you Place it once, then duplicate the item, they will be linked together. I wonder if you are doing this, since you have named some of your items "duplicate".

I just looked at your .afdesign file, and I am quite puzzled by several things that I see:

  1. I have looked at it in both Designer and Publisher. In both applications, everything seems to be white, so all i see is (apparently) a white artboard. Items are visible in the Layers panel, but not on the screen.
  2. When I look at it in Publisher, the Resource Manager shows all the embedded SVG files as being on Artboard #2, but your file only has one Artboard (named Artboard1).
  3. None of your items are actually on Artboard1, according to the Layers panel.
  4. If I try to select any of the items from the Layers panel, I do not see any sign of them being Selected on the screen (no Bounding boxes, for example).

Well your file is SVG x,y pos placement and size wise in contrast to the Artboard a total mess here ...

  1. an Artboard of  x=0, y=0, w=1080, h=2343 pixels
  2. a yellow SVG group of x=-25555.1, y=25323.9, w=5636, h=6649 pixels    // the yellow SVG groups x,y pos is far away drawn from the artboard and oversized
  3. ... same for the other three SVG groups!

Here is a file with some Placed and Copied/Duplicated and then four separately placed SVGs. In each case the SVG is the same. All have been edited by double-clicking on them. You can see how the SVG has been edited by Placing it again.

On my Mac, these files show as being on Artboard "2" but if I drag one of them into Artboard1, it then shows as being on "Artboard1" -- so somehow "2" isn't really the name of any artboard, just some odd way of showing that those objects are not in any artboard?

EDIT: I just tried adding an artboard to the file (in this case via the Designer persona of APub) & now in the Resource Manager all the SVGs as in "3" so it looks like the Artboard column just uses a number one greater than the number of artboards for items not on any of the actual artboards.
