Summary0001328: SVG Import: incorrect units
DescriptionSVG import results in my rectangle being the wrong size.
The SVG spec says numbers without units are measured in
"User Units" = 1 px.

1 pt = 1.25 px

Scribus loads the rectangle with width and height in
pt as default unit. Everything is the wrong size,
and my document is cut off at the end of the page.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create a rectangle in inkscape
2. Import the document in scribus
Additional InformationImageMagick's convert utility behaves the same way - it
cuts off the document at the end of the page, because
it's the wrong size.
TagsNo tags attached.

As far as we know, Inkscape actually implements this incorrectly.

How so. The SVG spec over here:

says things without explicit units are measured in "user units" = 1 px = 1.25 pt.

A rectangle of width 195 with no unit marked in the xml file
appears to be of width 195pt in scribus, when it seems like
it should be 195/1.25 to display properly.

Please explain, or if I'm wrong advise what the problem is
with inkscape so I can file a bug over there.

I'm sorry that should have been 1pt = 1.25 px,
not 1px = 1.25 pt. It still looks wrong.

I don't understand. Scribus fails to interpret the SVG file generated with inkscape, because it doesn't follow SVG specs that say measurements
without units should be interpreted in px, not in pt. You don't disagree with the issue yet you're telling me the bug is in inkscape...doesn't make any sense to me.
