SVG no precedence of overwriting attributes via style attribute declarations

Recommended Posts

These are Affinity SVG parsing/interpretation bugs, since according to the SVG spec, a style attribute prevails ...


SVG style attribute

The SVG element style attribute works in any SVG tag. When overriding attributes in the style attribute with CSS, the CSS property in the style attribute prevails.

<rect style="fill: beige" fill="aliceblue" width="300" height="100" />

The element is filled with beige because the declarations in the style attribute take precedence over the fill attribute. Just as with HTML elements, a style attribute sits closer to the element than a class—so style also prevails over global CSS declarations.

In Affinity however the above defined SVG rectangle will be always shown in aliceblue instead of beige, since the precedence over the fill attribute never takes place! - This probably affects all Affinity platform versions!

This will be due to our importer not reading the included style sheet with the SVG file, this is logged with our developers to investigate.
