    SVG linux vs. mac behavior

    Hi Guys,

    I am experiencing a strange behavior of SVG Logo that I have downloaded to work with on a website.

    The Logo has 3 parts: some text - an image - some text.

    The weird thing is that when I open this logo on my Ubuntu / Linux using whichever tool (Gimp, eog, Inkscape) or even on browser after implementing it, the first text part slightly overlaps the image. When I'm asking someone else to check on their Mac, the logo is ok (no overlapping)..

    Has anyone experienced the same and could tell me how to avoid this effect?

    Thanks

    that shouldn't happen, but i'd be thinking it's a problem with the software you're using.

    i've noticed similar problems creating vector images too big or small and scaling them to fit, sometimes that throws stuff off a bit.

    Hi Timbo89,
    Well, this exactly is the strange story: it doesn't matter which tool I use. It must be connected to my linux installation (screen resolution? But that doesn't really make sense either...).
    This makes working with SVG difficult if I cannot rely on what I am seeing

    The SVG depends on a font which is installed on your Mac, but NOT on your Linux system.

    Ah, Luna, in this case Helvetica. You might be right there, I'll do some tests, thanks.

    SOLVED, I would say.

    Thanks LunaGraphica! One tends to forget about these things, although I was warning about the use of Helvetica on websites, it didn't occure to me that, of course, it matters in a SVG.
    I changed the font to Arial inside the SVG. Having Arial installed on my laptop, everything looks fine.

    cheers

    If you are using Abode Illustrator you could convert the text to shapes and use any font you choose. Not sure how but I would assume its possible on the software you mentioned?

    Thats why text should be always converted to curves.
