Bug in creating parts

Steps I took that resulted in the problem:

Problem 1:
Created SVG file with Inkscape.
Downloaded font files from Fritzing site and installed it.
Use all text with font OCRA or Droid Sans.
Saved SVG file as Plain SVG as in instruction.
Got an error of fonts.
Every place where suppose to be a font there is a white rectangle.

Problem 2:
Add a jpg image of detail in Inkscape. Add a circles on pins and saved it as Plain SVG.
When load SVG in Fritzing, first it loads with image as it should. But when I save it and go to main project window, image gone and it’s just a white space with circles.

What I expected should have happened instead:

Problem 1:
Proper display of fonts.

Problem 2:
Proper display of image.

My version of Fritzing and my operating system:

Windows 7 x64

Please also attach any files that help explaining this problemPCF8574

Attach the fzpz here(7th button).

You have to convert raster images to vector in Ink before FZ will see it.

The text is probably there, just tiny. Ink adds px to text, so you have to XML edit the svg and remove the “px” in text groups.

You can also run your part through this python script which will correct a variety of problems that result from Inkscape and Fritzing using different parts of the standard (such as style which is a CSS requirement that Fritzing doesn’t entirely support):

It will remove the px from font size elements which is likely your font size problem. It may or may not help with other things.
