Seals of Michigan[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Request: Please recreate in SVG the seals of the Government of Michigan. They are all a slightly-altered version of the Seal of Michigan, and can be seen on the following websites: The Governor, the Secretary of State, the Attorney-General, and the Treasury.

Thanks Fry1989 (talk) 01:31, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): Stock-brush-red.svg Request taken by ZooFari Done, except Governor. Wouldn't that be just the coat of arms, uploaded here? Or does it need to be the same color scheme as it is on that website? --ZooFari 02:20, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Damn, they redesigned the website. When I made the request it had a seal in the upper-left corner that looked just like the Sec's, but with "GOVERNOR" in the bottom. Would you be willing to still make it? Fry1989 (talk) 17:07, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
Are you looking for this? It's somewhat funny though, the governor walks in on his first day in office, and his first order is: "I want a black header with a big seal in dark gray." hmmm. Regards, -- Orionisttalk 19:17, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
Yes Sir, that's the one! Thanks for finding the page. That is rather funny :D Fry1989 (talk) 21:18, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
Have a look above. Is that ok? --ZooFari 23:29, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
Well, that page doesn't work properly for me anymore, but I think it was the same design as the other executive seals, but I can fix that. Thanks Zoo :) Fry1989 (talk) 02:08, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
It was actually black border with a white ring inside. The only difference in my version to the one in the web page was the font, which I don't know. But up to you of course :) --ZooFari 02:12, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Interesting. I'll try and find more images of it, but sadly it's not on the new Governor's webpage. I'm glad I saw it before they redesigned the page so I knew it even existed, since I haven't found any other images of it so far. You'd think there'd be an image of it on the front of a lectern when the Governor is giving a speech, like with the Presidential seal, or the Governor's seal of California, but so far I've not seen that with Michigan's. Thanks again mate :) (marking as RESOLVED! whoo!) Fry1989 (talk) 02:20, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Naruto evolution chart - English to Japanese[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Request: This needs to have a Japanese translation for use on the Japanese Wikipedia.

  • Senjutsu Kyubi would be "仙術九尾"
  • WhisperToMe (talk) 05:38, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Do you want to keep the English text and just add the Japanese below, or do you want to make it Japanese only? If you want the latter, you need to provide translation for "Normal" and "Naruto's eye evolution". -- Orionisttalk 11:51, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Small mistake in .png pie chart[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Request: The tiny purple sliver at the top of the pie should be a tiny cyan sliver instead, according to the key. Or probably much easier, the purple and cyan squares in the key should be swapped. Also, SVG? Ginger Conspiracy (talk) 03:04, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Just some advice, you might want to remove the labels and use the following in the file page:

{{Legend|#cccccc|label}} {{Legend|#ffbc66|label2}}

Which will render:

This works better especially for translation. ZooFari 22:50, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the explenation of the legend. i changed it in that way, though it would be beter if the legend is at the right side of the immage. Also i woud like to have the colorspots smaller, but i can't seem to get it right.


I think both the size and position of the legend is fixed by the underlying template. Jon C (talk) 06:43, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

Stamford coat of arms[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Request: Per pale dexter side Gules three Lions passant guardant in pale Or and the sinister side chequy Or and Azure. I had a go at this myself all was going (reasonably) well until the "chequy" part. I was able to "cheq" but all over the alpha region.... I am not yet proficient in this stuff. The chequy could be a little better anyway. Rich Farmbrough, 12:15 5 January 2011 (GMT).

Graphist opinion(s): I don't quite understand what it is that you're trying to do - are you vectorizing an existing image? If so, do you have a link to the source? Jon C (talk) 16:11, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

I think he just wants the checkerboard pattern at right to be confined within a symmetrical shield shape, so that the image can actually be used on an article, and doesn't care too much how that's done (PNG or SVG all fine). AnonMoos (talk) 18:37, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
Anyway, I thought of a quick-and-dirty way to symmetrize the transparent areas in Photoshop (without creating an alpha-channel gradient, which I don't know how to do...). -- AnonMoos (talk) 15:53, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Excellent, many thanks. Rich Farmbrough, 00:55 1 February 2011 (GMT).
I made that from another shield and a cut-and pasted (and re-coloured) lion and a bunch of squares. Rich Farmbrough, 00:58 1 February 2011 (GMT).

By the way, a reference image can be found here (scroll to the bottom of the page). Of course, each depiction is correct, but I was wondering how one can fill the empty space below the lions. Regards, -- Orionisttalk 13:59, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

William Playfair's Time Series[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Request: Rotate and Crop, smooth color variations which hint at text on the previous page (esp. behind "Balance in Favour of England) and scanning artifacts (discoloration in corner) MarsInSVG (talk) 18:10, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Colour is an easy fix, see above, although it looses much of the feel of the original document in my opinion. Rotation is more of a problem, since the image is actually distorted (assuming all the lines were parallel and perpendicular to start with) - you can rotate so that a given line is vertical or horizontal, but the others will be off. There is a tool called "Hugin" or "Huggin" which can resolve these types of issues. Rich Farmbrough, 04:08 12 January 2011 (GMT).

Ok I rotated the three elements independently, and then skewed the graph until the right side is vertical. I resisted the temptation to centre the top caption. Rich Farmbrough, 15:25 12 January 2011 (GMT).

File:Denkmalplakette Nordrhein-Westfalen 2010.svg[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Request: I’ve uploaded an image to commons since ages. (I know why I don’t do that too often.) Everything looked finde on my computer in InkScape and Firefox, but after uploaded to Commons the text in it suddenly looks very strange. Help! Alex (talk) 19:51, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Easiest would just be to "Convert text to paths" inside InkScape. Another problem is that it should presumably be white inside the shield (not transparent). AnonMoos (talk) 20:23, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
*puzzled* Help:SVG says “please do consider […] not converting fonts to path [as this] will increase file dimension”. And it feels like that I’ve rather stumbled accross some subtle mistake than taking the sledgehammer. Anyway: thanks for the hint with the transparent background. --Alex (talk) 22:35, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
It's not the most elegant solution, but sometimes it's a quick shortcut through RSVG font rendering hell and/or Inkscape peculiarities. The text in that image doesn't need to be translated into different languages, which is the main advantage to text as text in SVG. AnonMoos (talk) 01:54, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
I agree that the text should be converted to path Richardprins (talk) 21:56, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
Using just one x-coordinate for the text fixed the problem. Thanks anyway. --Alex (talk) 13:58, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): Isn't it the same as this? -- Orionisttalk 21:24, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

No, it is not. Republika Srpska and Republic of Serbian Krajina weren't same entities. Al tough there are slight differences in feathers (compare neck and wings), Krajina svg COA can be used. The second COA that is needed is coat of Army of Republika Srpska, now defunct army, therefore I believe there are no copyright restrictions. -- Bojan  Talk  00:11, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Inkscape SVG text rendering problems[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Request: I was recommended to ask you guys to see if you could help. I'm making some images in inkscape for a wikibook I'm working on. you can find the rest of the images here. Unfortunately the text I see in inkscape is resized once it is png format on wikicommons, as you can see above. Looking at the SVG in chrome 12.0.742.112 renders the text correctly . Any idea how to fix this? I'm using inkscape 0.48.0 portable apps version and windows xp. I have also tested in on 0.48.1 and it works fine.. Thanks Pluke (talk) 21:23, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

I think I might know what is going wrong. I have it under the "Sans" font in Inkscape, which apparently defaults to Arial in Windows, the font that wikipedia replaces it with is slightly larger, hence the misalignment. Is the only way to fix this to go through each image individually and change the font to dejavu sans? Surely I can't be the only experiencing this issue?Pluke (talk) 22:08, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the help. I'll get to fixing the other images Pluke (talk) 10:19, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

First, I would set the symbol to a unit (because it can always shift when scaled). Then, I would try specific Arial as font (it is being converted to a similar Font). If you don't know, read for more information Help:SVG (there should be linked everything more specific). If you then still have questions, go ahead. PS: You can group fonts: “It is always recommended that such generic fonts (Sans) as a last indication of a value assignment”. -- Perhelion»♥› 23:41, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): It's been a while, but I figure I could start again. xD Are the ones that appear black-and-white on the websites meant to be that way, or should they be coloured like the arms/seals themselves? NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 21:02, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

EXCELLENT! Utah's I would assume is exactly the same as the State Seal colour-wise, it looks like it's just a graphic, similar to what they've done to the Michigan coat of arms on that state's Governor's website. Texas, I'm not so sure, I can't find any other pics of the Governor's seal for that one. I'd go with the same colouring as the State seal as well though, but of course, you're the artist :) I think Connecticut's will be the most difficult one though, with it's escalloped outer ring and such, so I'm really grateful for you're taking this. Fry1989 (talk) 00:39, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Hello NikNaks93! Regarding the fonts, the one on Texas seal is "Quant Antiqua Bold", although it looks like the "Regular" is used on the governor's seal. For Connecticut I think it's "Century", looks like a "semibold" or "extended" variation. For Utah it looks like "Bookman Old Style", albeit condensed, and you'll find a much clearer image of the seal on page 1 of this file. Finally Alabama looks like "Times new Roman". Hope that helps. Regards, -- Orionisttalk 13:50, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
Just a note for Utah's btw. I noticed in the PDF that Orionist provided, it has some roman numerals at the bottom instead of the 1896 on the State Seal. If my suspicions are correct, those roman numerals represent the Governor himself, and changes with every governor, as the roman numerals on the California Governor's seal does. THerefore, we have 3 options. Include the numerals, and change them when the next Governor comes in, leave it blank, or put in the 1896 from the State seal. Since you're the artist, I'll leave that to you however. Fry1989 (talk)
Okay, I'm coming back to these this weekend now I have more time. I'll fix the font on Texas, too. NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 17:31, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

I doubt that image is clear enough for automatic tracing to do much good, and tracing it by hand would be a major pain.

For the first section, you could presumably use almost any sans-serif font with Esperanto-character support, and it would serve much the same purpose; the tricky part is duplicating the second section (handwriting). AnonMoos (talk) 22:50, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

I think the easiest way would be (for somebody talented for it) to redraw the letters according the image (the difference between such a result and the outcome of the tracing would be similar but the redrawn one would look better). --Petrus Adamus (talk) 19:18, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Hettenrodt's coat of arms[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved
Squares' tinctures are no longer transposed.

Request: I'd do a simple thing like this by myself, but I haven't the means to deal with svg files. The problem with this coat of arms is simply that the "chequy" field on the dexter (armsbearer’s right, viewer’s left) side has its tinctures transposed; the red squares should be silver and the silver ones red. It seems to be usual in German heraldry to render a chequy field thus, with the colour first, whereas, I realize, in English heraldry, the opposite rule, with the metal first, is observed. Can somebody please make this slight but important change? The proper form of this coat of arms can be seen here and here (two versions, both from official sources). Thanks. Kelisi (talk) 05:52, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Although the request is easy, this file is one of the weirdest SVG files I've ever seen. It looks like it's been, at some point in its life, a PNG file then run through some sort of converter. This accounts for its filesize. For anyone who wants to diddle with this image just check out the stroke around the tree/leaves. Each red square has around 30+ points defining it. On top of all that it's not even correctly defined as an SVG. Just plain weird. IMHO this should be done from scratch. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 07:17, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Having trouble with graphics/text errors once uploaded to Commons[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved -- πϵρήλιο

Request: I generated this image using Inkscape; however, it seems to get interpreted differently between what it looks like in Inkscape and what it looks like once uploaded. For example the arrow head near the point labeled "A" is oriented incorrectly and the fonts seem incorrect. Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong? Devinberg (talk) 18:15, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Managed to get a version working with the correct orientation of the arrowhead. Devinberg (talk) 18:22, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Convert the texts to paths in inkscape using "Convert object to path" (shift + ctrl + C). Then combine them to reduce the size of the svg (ctrl + K). That way your text is a path, independant of the viewer and its installed fonts.
The best practice is also to keep the original text object in the image. Place it outside of the border of the image for instance.

All done. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 23:18, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

While I thank you, I must ask you put in the coat of arms with the colours I uploaded on 14:40, October 9, 2011 (the most recent version). The South African Corporate Identity Guide has set out very strict and specific guidelines on the exact colours of every single element of the coat of arms (and according to the PDF, the Presidential Seal is supposed to match). Could you also re-do the seal itself, so it's actually a circle rather than an oval, and redo the inscription to fit? I was also hoping you would upload it over the B&W version, as it's defective anyways. Fry1989 eh? 00:08, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
The colours I used were sampled directly from the official PNG you linked to above, though I didn't re-colour the existing svg. I didn't notice it was an oval, I just used the outer from the black and white version and recoloured it according to the official colours. One thing I did notice was that the official version uses bold type, whereas the b/w version has regular type - which is outlined so am not totally sure which font was used. It's late so I'll have a look at it tomorrow. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 01:13, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but the coat of arms in the seal must to match the latest version of the Coat of arms as I have uploaded. is very precise about the 11 separate colours to be used on Page 4, and it states that all representations must follow it. I can not explain why the source I listed on the presidential seal shows it different, I can only assume these two PDFs were produced at different dates, and that is why they contradict each other. I really am greatful for your taking this request, please finish whenever you have spare time, I don't mean to rush you. Fry1989 eh? 01:30, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
The most likely reason for the different colours is dodgy colour space conversion. All the colours given in the PDF are either CMYK or Pantone. The PNG file is in sRGB, so there's a possibility the conversion wasn't done correctly. The next question that arises though is what colour space I should use for the SVG? --Fred the Oyster (talk) 01:51, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
I'm sorry, what do you mean by "colour space"? Fry1989 eh? 02:21, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
If you mean the colour for the ring and wording of the seal, I would personally use the same green as used in the Coat of arms. Fry1989 eh? 16:25, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
No sorry I meant the colour space as in RGB or CMYK or any of the variants. Given that all the colours in the PDF relate to the CMYK colour space there's going to be slight colour changes if they need to be converted to RGB. A quick and dirty explanation is that anything that is computer-based output or input e.g. monitors, scanners, cameras is RGB, anything that is printed uses the CMYK colour space. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 16:32, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
Oh I see. I thought I avoided that issue by taking the PDF palette and directly pasting it into my Inkscape, and copying the colours. As far as I can tell, they're the same as the PDF prescribes. Fry1989 eh? 16:38, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

All done, I created a custom palette in Illustrator with the official numbers. I made it truly circular and re-did the curved text with the official Gill Sans text. I hope that does the job? --Fred the Oyster (talk) 16:15, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't know how you do it on Inkscape, but all I do in Illustrator is select the relevant bits, or do a control-A, then use the black arrow selection tool to grab one of the corner selection handles, hold down alt and shift (shift to maintain proportion, alt to expand/contract from the centre) then drag in whichever direction I want.

which you can view in a suitable interpreter such as Ghostscript), then I used various personal ad-hoc methods (which I can relate in boring detail if you really want) to convert the vector PostScript to vector SVG. I used PostScript because I've been working with it since the early 1990's, and I'm comfortable using it, but other people might use various mathematical or function-plotting type languages to do the same thing. Somehow I seem to be responsible for the great majority of images in Category:Generated by PostScript (though not for those in the subcategories of that category).

P.S. A tool I sometimes use to clean up and simplify vector outlines is Fontforge (I guess technically not a PostScript tool, though closely-related).

The "+"s should be dividing the color coded letter sections.

Sorry, that went completely over my head. How do I do that?? Fry1989 eh? 21:06, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
Say for example a flag has a ratio of 3:2. Just choose the width to be easily divisible by 3, e.g. 600. That means each 3 'unit' is 200. So the right hand number of the ratio is 2. So multiply the 'unit' (200) you created earlier by 2. Ergo the dimensions of the flag should be 600 x 400. I'm not much of a teacher and/or explainer but I hope you got the gist of it. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 21:30, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Reordering of frames in animated GIF[edit]

Request: I'd like to feature this animated GIF at the WP Mathematics Portal (specifically, at w:Portal:Mathematics/Featured picture/2012 01), but the image will be scaled down slightly (not as much as shown here, of course) when displayed on the Portal page. Unfortunately, large images like this don't animate when they're reduced in size, so only the first frame of the animation will be displayed. As you can see above, the first frame shows only two circles with no hypotrochoid; I need it to show the completed curve, which is seen in the last few frames (see the File page for the animated version). In other words, I need the last 1 or 2 frames of the animation moved to the beginning of the sequence. This should be trivial to do with the right software. - dcljr (talk) 18:45, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Ah, but the Governor and Secretary both use the greater coat of arms ;) Fry1989 eh? 06:02, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
I was able to put in the greater arms. The trick was that they had weird strokes on them, so if you shrank the arms to fit the seal, they would get gummed up, so I had to enlarge the seal to fit the arms. I hope you're not terribly offended if I remove the tongues, they're usually just fanciness added to the impression paper, rarely part of the seal design itself. Thank you again, I know it looks like I'm good at inkscape, but there's still alot that's beyond me, so making these fully by myself is still a bit beyond my abilities, so I truly am greatful for your assistance.

You can take it, or I can put it up in another request, which ever your prefer. Interestingly, all impressions of the Governor's seal use the first version I requested, but the only photograph of the seal used on a podium I've been able to find is this one variant. Atleast it's not like Puerto Rico though, so far I've found four variants of their Governor's seal! Fry1989 eh? 02:19, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): Stock-brush-red.svg Request taken by NikNaks93

Thanks Fred, yeah idk what was wrong with the CoA, except that if you shrink it, it gets messed up, so I had to enlarge the seal to fit th earms. If you and Connormah would like to continue, I'd be very greatful. I can do alot of things, but font and some other issues are still a bit past me. Fry1989 eh? 21:28, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
I didn't have that problem, but I think what is happening for you is that you haven't set inkscape to scale strokes and fills (and maybe patterns too) when you do a transform. But no, those aren't the problems I was referring too. The original author only used basic vector techniques in the artwork and bodged them to make them look right. For example the transparent strip between the horses' manes and the body, wasn't actually transparent originally, it was a strip of white overlaying the mane. I had problems using that strip to 'cut through' to the background transparency. In doing so I had to get a load of other elements onto different layers. That led to other problems such as the belt buckle on the top of the rope not being a compound shape, but was a black rectangle with the centre not being transparent but simply another whit rectangle on top. This then led to the ropes not being a custom brush stroke following a path. The stroke, the fill and all the little black lines were all separate elements instead of all being part of the same element. What should have been a 5-minute job became a 30-minute job. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 21:54, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
Oh yeah, I see what you mean. The arms to have alot of choppy parts, the eagle most noticeably. It'd be awesome if we could get them completelyu re-done, but that's a tall order. I am satisfied with the way they are now though. I just need all these seals done, I have a bookmark list of probably 150 seals and coats of arms that I'd like to see come to Commons, mostly US state government, but also some other countries too. Anyhow, gottta take it slow, so just requesting these ones for now :) Fry1989 eh? 22:18, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes! That's exactly what I had in mind. If it's not too much trouble you might just try if the clarity is better at small sizes if you make the hand a bit smaller and more central, so that the finger tips don't overlap the edge of the face. (However, it might well look weird, I'm not sure...) Thanks. Rd232 (talk) 17:07, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
I tried it and it did look weird. At these sizes the smallest movement of a line has drastic effect even though I'm working in sub-pixel units. The more you move the fingers and decrease the size of the hand the more it becomes obvious that there isn't a face behind the hand, and strangely enough the complexity goes up. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 17:37, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

The red was recently requested here to be matched with the red of File:Flag of Mongolia.svg, which was done by myself. So unless you can narrow down what you mean by "fix" this request isn't likely to be carried out. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 23:07, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Gradients Help[edit]

Yes check.svg ResolvedFred the Oyster (talk) 20:30, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Bit strange of me to be posting instead of responding, but if anyone can help explain why my gradients have gone wrong, please do!

As you can see, the gradient of the SVG that MediaWiki has rendered (on the left here) is wildly different from how I created it in Inkscape (right). Any ideas? NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 19:47, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Graphist Opinions:

The issue seems to be the gradient definitions in that SVG use non-standard tags "<a:midPointStop>", which should be from Adobe Illustrator. Can't help you any further than that right now, unfortunately (I have no vector graphics program installed). —Quibik (talk) 20:49, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
Ah, that likely stems from me hijacking an existing gradient to make that. I'll try recreating one from scratch. Thanks! NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 21:19, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
Just out of interest I took the svg, opened it in AI, saved it as an .ai file then saved it back as an svg, then removed anything Inkscape related using Notepad++. Now to me it looks the same in the renderer as it does in AI and when I open it locally in IE. Is this the effect you were after? Incidentally, "<a:midPointStop>" is no longer in the code. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 21:26, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
Ah, now looking back at the png above I see that everytime I've seen it, in the renderer, locally in IE and in Illustrator it's always looked like the version on the left. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 21:29, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
Sussed it. The gradient is still there, but the centre of the dark 'strip' has moved across to the left, outside the viewbox. Well at least that's what is happening, as for why it's happening I have no clue, sorry. I'm not really au fait with the mathematical side of svg code. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 21:36, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks!  :) How did you solve it? NikNaks talk - gallery - wikipedia 12:55, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
When looking at the gradients in Illustrator I noticed that the centre point of the left-hand gradient was mapped to a point outside the left edge of the viewbox. All I did was just move them back to roughly where they should be. I haven't checked the file in Inkscape though, so I don't know how the image appears there. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 20:26, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

SVG fix[edit]

Request: Can someone make visible (or tell how to make visible) this table? Here is a relevant bugzilla bug and discussion. However, reading it didn't help me much, as "my" files apparently contain "stroke=black". They don't pass validator, but pass Commons check. Thanks. Materialscientist (talk) 04:11, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):That has to be the weirdest svg code I've seen. Why, for example, are clipping paths being used for something as basic as this? Also, why are all the text formatting tags stuffed in the svg header tag? But the strangest thing, given how much font information is in that file, is why there is no plain text output? Another question related to that is point size. Why have point size to a precision of 15? What are you using to produce this rubbish code? Marvin? I do hope you haven't paid for it. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 10:16, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

I have no relation to these images, and only wish to have them displayed. Redrawing is fine, if this is easier than fixing the code (yes, it is obviously Marvin with Batik, which is used by some uploaders and apparently becomes invisible due to the recent software update). The only requirement is to have the molecular structures as they are now, with line length/width appropriate for a general chemical formula - all other graphical details on point size precision, etc., are optional. Materialscientist (talk) 10:42, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
I don't mind redoing them properly but I have no idea what they are supposed to look like, especially given that I'm not a chemist. Are these images supposed to have text in them, eg chemical names etc? I'm guessing so given all the font info in the files. So are there png equivalents that I can copy to svg and then overwrite the versions you already have? --Fred the Oyster (talk) 11:25, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
Every image becomes visible upon clicking, and my firefox displays them well when saved locally. Overwriting is fine (I would redraw myself, but my svg skills are rudimentary, and I wasn't sure about code-fixing when posting this). They are for thumb use, and thus margins can be kept to minimum. Materialscientist (talk) 12:06, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes I can see shapes when I click on them/download them, but I'm not seeing any text. Is that correct? --Fred the Oyster (talk) 12:47, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
I pulled them up in Inkscape, and ungrouped EVERYTHING pressing ctrl+shft+g and i draged over the image and out came a rectangle(a path actually) with white fill and white border(probably used as background). uploaded it again and the issues persist. Deleted all the text elements and problem still persists.Gauravjuvekar (talk) 15:29, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
I went back to the original version and started from that, and now all sorted. There was a clipping mask preventing the renderer from rendering the shapes. There were also lots of redundant points/nodes which I can only assume used to be, at one point, text objects. Anyway, all four files now render correctly albeit with no text. Adding the text from these versions would now be simple for anyone, once we know what the correct text is of course. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 20:11, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
Many thanks. While text might have been planned for some intermediate versions, the final ones do not require any text. Materialscientist (talk) 22:31, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
