Fatal rendering error derails image update attempt[edit]

I attempted to improve File:2230 Kanji.svg by colour-coding the kanji according to the grade levels in which they are taught in Japanese schools. Unfortunately, the Commons SVG renderer thwarted my efforts by blotting out the text showing how to use the table with a big black box. Can anyone see if they can fix this? -- Denelson83 (talk) 03:18, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Never mind. After scrolling this page up and finding Jarry1250's convenient "SVG Check" tool, I found the problem using his innovation and fixed it. -- Denelson83 (talk) 03:31, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Image size limit preference[edit]

I don't know why the "10000*10000px" option gone but expecting a technical explanation for its removal. Also I wish the "this image rendered as PNG in other sizes" for SVG file provides an "original size" option rather than few fixed values. Many SVG images are fine-turned for Wikimedia's SVG renderer so the image might not look right in other SVG renderers such as Inkscape or browser's native renderer. Thx. -- Sameboat - 同舟 (talk) 15:42, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

These are more Wikimedia configuration issues than issues with the images themselves; you might ask on the general village pump or file a "Bugzilla" bug report... AnonMoos (talk) 04:42, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Rendering Problems[edit]

Hello villagers, I'm experiencing some trouble with File:Liniengleichnis.svg. All of the sudden two big brackets and some text are overshadowed by black boxes, although they looked kinda fine in previous versions (except when viewed in original resoultion). I've run several variations through Jarry1250's file checker - even if i remove the brackets and text, the black boxes remain. The problem seems to be caused by some float objects i can't really identify. To my astonishment, the file also contains troublesome font information, although inkscape should have converted all text objects into paths to avoid such problems. What should I do? Could someone have a look?Leif Czerny (talk) 15:12, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

Mysterious black rectangles are almost always caused by Inkscape "flowtext" nonsense, and can be diagnosed at Commons:SVG Check... AnonMoos (talk) 15:38, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
Hi AnonMoos, I know about the check, but I don't know how to remove the 'flowtext', nor why it suddenly appears in this file at all. Could you please direct me towards a solution? Leif Czerny (talk) 15:41, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the repair! Leif Czerny (talk) 16:33, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

Animated svg[edit]

My question is on rendering for animated svg on commons. This file File:Circles2ellipseAnimated.svg should appear (after tranlation in png) like this one File:Circles2ellipse.svg, it is the case by using rsvg-view / rsvg (on unix, version 2.34.1), and it works when the file is included in another page like this one fr:Théorème de La Hire. But, as you can see, it is not the case on commons, which is a bit confusing (and I do not see anything about that in Help:SVG#How_SVGs_work_in_MediaWiki). Not really a big probleme, but is there an explaination ? Proz (talk) 18:27, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Now it is correct, a cache I suppose. Proz (talk) 16:38, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
