Summary0002526: SVG import fails if document is open
DescriptionSVG import fails silently.
avox remembers seeing this behaviour for PS import, also.
Steps To ReproduceOpen document in Scribus/Aqua
Import SVG
Nothing shows up.

Same SVG imports if no doc is open
Additional Information<bolsh> avox: I have this funky thing when I import an SVG - it doesn't appear on the page
[14:45] <bolsh> But sometimes I get glimses of the bounding box.
[14:46] <avox> All SVG or just a certain one?
[14:46] <bolsh> All
[14:46] <bolsh> It happens when there's an existing document.
[14:46] <avox> Which version? Scribus/Aqua or fink?
[14:46] <bolsh> Aqua
[14:47] <avox> Work if no doc is open?
[14:47] <bolsh> And it also sets the page size for the current document to the size of the SVG
[14:48] <bolsh> The document I see is A4, but the next time I open File->Document Setup, the page shrinks to the size of the SVG
[14:48] <bolsh> Yeah, Works fine with no doc
[14:48] <bolsh> And sometimes with a doc open too
[14:52] <avox> Can you work around that by importing with no doc and then copy/paste it to the doc you want?
[14:53] <avox> I'm afraid I don't have time to fix that bug right away
[14:58] <bolsh> That's what I'm doing
[14:58] <bolsh> I also have other problems... general stability issues
[14:59] <bolsh> I've had trouble getting anything actually done - I've spent all morning just working on templates, when it's the content that's important :)
[14:59] <avox> Well, it's still alpha I'm afraid
[14:59] <bolsh> As we speak, I just got a Sig11

No issue under Linux here.

Could this be a user error, caused by unclear documentation? You have to first do the Import, and then place the SVG on the actual page -- and the Place cursor will only show up on the currently active page (last clicked page).
