A village pump

Hello and Welcome to this Graphics village pump of Commons. This Graphics village pump aims to provide help and information about the several Graphic Labs spread in the Wikipedias, and to be the technical support forum for all the local Labs, graphists (graphic artists), and users interested in graphic works, and is a page where graphists and users from all the Labs can talk about graphics, tutorials, graphic software, help to build new Graphic Labs, etc. Also for exchanging opinions, ideas, protocols, and ways of improvement.

Did I over-optimize...[edit]

...these images: Vector-bullet-icon.svg ChangedBulletVector.svg ? They show fine in my browsers, but have zooming issues in iOS (when used in list-style-image), and after optimization, they appear blank in Inkscape. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 19:59, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

@Edokter Not really, you used uncommon path arc syntax. Which tool you used? It can't be Inkscape. The first problem is you used an starting number as id name, which is not allowed, but this is not the problem here. The problem seems that you used two not default arc commands "large-arc-flag" and "sweep-flag" on an useless exception, where this are 1 1 is the same as 0 0 (because this syntax do exact an semicircle). This seems to corrupt Inkscape, which could be reported as bug (I'm not sure this is a bug).[1][2] PS: I simply propose to use the circle element for this. The newest Inkscape (pre release) has native support for this. User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)  00:07, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
While using the <circle> element would certainly be simpler, the a arc commands are not a problem by themselves; Inkscape converts them to Bezier curves that are precise enough to not noticably differ from exact arcs in most cases. What does cause Inkscape to not render the circle in both files is that there is no space or comma separating the large-arc and sweep flags from a following negative coordinate:

This is the same Inkscape bug I noticed here. SiBr4 (talk) 09:22, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
Indeed, I'v not tested my note :-o (it was very late), this Inkscape bug is reported here. User: Perhelion (Commons: = crap?)  18:04, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the comments, though most of it goes beyond my grasp. I initially crated the 'circle' by drawing an elipse, then ctrl-clicked to make it a circle. I then ran it through SVG editor to optimize, and after that I manually removed the group tag that only had a translate(0,-3). But since I only need a circle and a gradient, I went all bare-hands, looked up the syntax and hand-edited from sratch. They are both showing in Inkscape and really small to boot. I hope the iOS zoom problem is also solved. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 21:42, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
