Import Inkscape to Designer, help

Recommended Posts

I have an old logo that i finally found, that was originally made in Inkscape. I need it to be imported into Affinity Designer, but every .svg type I save from Inkscape provides with just the mountain inside the letters being there- not any letters. I have tried online converters- but they have proven nothing useful (svg->ai)

 

I supplied the inkscape svg's in the attachments. Help would really be appreciated.

You might have better luck exporting to PDF.

In both the SVG exports you have attached the letter shapes are being used as masks to the white "mountain" shapes, if you click on the grey triangle on the layer it will reveal the mask curve, you can right click on the mask curve layer and select Release Mask.

this will now show the shape of the letter in white, its still not very good and if Pdf export doesn't yield a better export I'd just recreate the graphic in Affinity Designer.

That is neat and all- but it is missing everything else still from the file including 2 lines of text and gradients. 

Not only that, but I still need that mask for the mountains. I attached the inkscape view of the normal svg.

Exporting (Save as) to PDF gives a better export.

I tried PDF, but as you can see on yours- it is a complete mess and way worse on mine than you see on yours- including gradients being off and such so. I need a way to get an exact conversion, without having to modify gradients and things becoming different.

Well AD doesn't support that form of SVG gradients also as many other Inkscape specific SVG code things inside those files are not supported. Thus it can't handle these imported files in some graceful manner at all. - So you might better trace and rebuild that stuff in AD new here.
