Importing svg files circles converted to paths - can I stop it?

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I've just imported an svg file, copied and pasted it into another, did some resizing, changed the layer names, and then exported the combined document (a map with place names) to svg. I ended up with circles being converted into paths. To give one example:

	<circle cx="210.4" cy="230.6" id="Genova (w9) marker" r="3" class="style0"/>
		<g id="Genova (w9) label" transform="translate(0,0)" x="215.4" y="230.6">			<text id="Genova (w9) name" x="215.4" y="230.6" class="style1">Genova
			</text></g>

was converted to:

<g id="Genova marker">
                    <path d="M215.887,281.212C217.745,281.212 219.251,282.719 219.251,284.577C219.251,286.435 217.745,287.942 215.887,287.942C214.028,287.942 212.522,286.435 212.522,284.577C212.522,282.719 214.028,281.212 215.887,281.212Z" style="fill:black;fill-opacity:0;stroke-width:1.12px;stroke:black;"/>
                </g>
                <g id="Genova name">
                    <text x="221.494px" y="284.577px" style="font-family:Verdana;font-size:11.2154px;fill:black;">Genov<tspan x="257.112px 263.848px ">a </tspan></text>
                    <text x="221.494px" y="295.792px" style="font-family:Verdana;font-size:11.2154px;fill:black;">   </text>
                </g>
 

 

Is there a way I can get it to retain the circles as circles so that I can more easily change the radius?

 

Thanks.

We import circles as circles. Open the file in the program and look in the layers panel and you'll see that the items in the SVG that were circles now say 'Ellipse' next to them (we don't distinguish Ellipse versus Circle). It's our export to SVG that's turning them into paths, not the import. We can try to look at it, no problem :)

Thanks a lot - yes as you say I should have said 'export'.
