Re: Release 9.0.0 DP7 / SVG / The book of the film of the poem/ Alejandro solved it.

Hi Alejandro,

sorry for the delayed answer. Busy times. I tried to write a script to adapt some of the SVG files at hand
according to your instructions but that got me into a lot of offset problems and the widget ran into
a lot of “exceeds boundary “ or something similar in rendering. I have written “translation scripts” for 30 years
now but this one is a bit fickle.

But for the sake of letting everybody know :  the solution of SVG rendering strokes combined with  RGB fills of Alejandro below works.

I must admit that it helped that he had already pinpointed the RGB ones with a stroke ( sound like a disease doesn’t it).

Duplicating the lines manually and replacing with “fill:none” did the trick : The SVG then renders exactly as in Illustrator and in Affinity Designer.

Picture :

As it stands I will still have to figure out a reproducible and reliable way of finding an duplicating in the SVG-text or maybe
one of the authors of the widget has an idea on how to bypass this/implement it in the LCB code.

Many thanks for your assistance!

kind regards

Frans Schoffelen, Berlin
