[AD] Designer can't open simple svg-file of flag

Recommended Posts

After importing a simple SVG file in Designer, the flag of GB from Wikipedia is destroyed. Look at the missing red stripes. The svg opens fine in any mayor browser, but not in Affinity Designer. There's nothing strange or complex inside the svg, just some <path>s and a simple <clipPath>, so Designer should be able to open thisone without any problems.

File in attachment is taken from this url on wikipedia:

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/ae/Flag_of_the_United_Kingdom.svg

Flag_of_the_United_Kingdom.svg

And this is everything there is inside the svg:

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 60 30" width="1200" height="600">
<clipPath id="t">
	<path d="M30,15 h30 v15 z v15 h-30 z h-30 v-15 z v-15 h30 z"/>
</clipPath>
<path d="M0,0 v30 h60 v-30 z" fill="#00247d"/>
<path d="M0,0 L60,30 M60,0 L0,30" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="6"/>
<path d="M0,0 L60,30 M60,0 L0,30" clip-path="url(#t)" stroke="#cf142b" stroke-width="4"/>
<path d="M30,0 v30 M0,15 h60" stroke="#fff" stroke-width="10"/>
<path d="M30,0 v30 M0,15 h60" stroke="#cf142b" stroke-width="6"/>
</svg>

Even Internet Explorer 9, which is stone age, 7,5 years old (!!), not supported by Microsoft and webdevelopers anymore, and the most problematic browser by far, can open this file without any problem.
Please Affinity, fix these kind of things. This is basic stuff!!!

The bug is bug, and should be repaired, if possible. But how does this contribute to its solution?

Hi Friksel,

This exact file has been brought up previously and is currently logged with our developers to be fixed in a future version :)

Thanks

@CallumLooking at the bugfix-group (afd-1205) you put this item in, it's already taking almost 2,5 years to fix this. Don't you think that's a little long to fix such a mayor bug in professional software?
