Support » Plugin: SVG Support » SVG without font in Newspaper theme

  • Resolved albertok


    Hi there,

    I used SVG support to display images with variuos fonts made in CorelDraw.
    In the site with color mag pro theme there are no problem: all imges are displayed correctly.
    I wish to change my theme with Newspaper by TagDiv; in this case alla images are displayed correctly BUT NOT the font inside images.

    Have I maybe made any mistakes?

    It sounds like you just need to outline/expand your fonts before saving from coreldraw. I personally haven’t used it for a long time so I don’t remember how it works exactly, but all objects need to be expanded as if sending to print so no font information is required.

    Hi there,
    thank you for answer.
    I tried to export (not print) .SVG (including font of coure) with corel 2017 and corel 2018.
    I can try to convert fonts in lines… but I wish to know because the same file before worked and not now!

    It’s really strange because in these days i tried various times… but insted of font i set in the drawing i see a sort of “times New Roman”….

    When fonts are not converted to lines/outlined/expanded, you will get mixed results online. You should always outline fonts before sending to web, as you would for print.

    I’m not sure what you mean in your last sentence. But I believe if you outline all your text, you shouldn’t have an issue anymore.

    It’s not specific to my plugin, but to SVG files themselves online.

    It seems to be solved using corel option: convert font as line.

    It’s really strange because with other theme before, I haven’t had problems and used normal SVG conversion.

    Good to know you got it sorted.

    It certainly is strange when fonts work when they aren’t outlined.
    By rule, always outline your fonts in your SVG before web use and you will never have an issue. That’s what I meant by “print”. When designers send their art to print physically, the fonts need to be outlined to avoid any need of font information as it then becomes a simple vector structure instead.

    Thank you very much for your explanations and patient 🙂

    best wishes
    Merry Christmass to you and your family
