I'm totally new to Affinity and super excited to see what I downloaded!  It really looks awesome.  I tried to search for existing issues and can't find any, hope I'm not duplicating or missing something obvious.  Please be kind while I learn...

Bug description and expected results:

When I attempt to open an SVG file created in Inkscape (without converting text to curves / paths) the images are all imported correctly, however all the text is missing.  I attempted to look at the help file and it shows a table of formats that can be imported and svg is displayed so I'm expecting that the import should:

- Either be successful with all my images and text boxes correctly imported and displayed.

- Or an appropriate error message is displayed telling me there was issues with the import (if any) and hopefully how to fix it.

- Help available to explain if there are any constraints / prerequisites / workflow that I must follow for a successful import.

Actual results:

- Only images are imported.  No text.

- No error message is displayed.

- Help gives no guidelines how to resolve the issue.

Attached are 3 files as supporting documents -

1. Expected result with a png version of the flyer as it should look like.

2. Actual result with a screendump of what I'm seeing.

3. The svg file I'm trying to upload.

I'm using a 64 bit Windows 10 machine.

looks like there is something wrong with the svg file, tested in designer and no text there either.
