Problem svg file

Post by Lookin4help » Thu Sep 26, 2019 6:59 pm

I have an .svg file that I hope someone can help me with. I wish I could attach the file, but apparently it is not in a format that is acceptable, which I find strange since .svg format is what Carbide Create uses. So, I have uploaded a .jpg version of that file. You will note a circle of stars in the .jpg file. When I open this same file in the .svg format in InkScape it looks just like what you see in the .jpg file I uploaded. However, when I bring the .svg file into Carbide Create I get one (1) star and a number of stripes. The stripes I know how to dispose of, but I cannot figure out why I am getting just one star rather than the full circle or how to get that full circle. Can anyone help with this? Thanks ahead of time.

The SVG uses an array feature which Carbide Create doesn't support.
