Summary0015379: Severe import issues with Inkscape SVG file
DescriptionI have attached an SVG file that cannot be imported correctly by Scribus. Please compare the results in Inkcape and Scribus.

Here's a list of the problems:

- The QR code in the upper third of "page 1", as well as a map on "page 2" are being displaced.

- Text flow around items is being ignored when text is left-aligned or centred.

- Text properties like bold, kerning, empty spaces, alignment, font size etc. are being ignored.

- in column 4 on "page 1", the penguin on the sofa is missing.
TagsNo tags attached.

This SVG contains non standard flowRoot element. This element was at a point part of SVG 1.2 draft but has been completely removed from it since.

See following inkscape bugs for more information:

So at this point this SVG is non conformant.

That's why I convert all text to paths before doing the import into Scribus. Ignore the text bugs, but please take a look at the dislocated items.

QR code on page 1 and map on page 2 are now correctly placed, same for penguin on sofa on page 1. That was fixed with 0015409.

Thank you, Jean! I can't test, but I'm really happy to read this is fixed!
