The template finishes its display with a new line; when the template is used just to display the text, like
{{ Derived from }} - This file was derived from: 
which will not be appropriate if continuation in the same line is required; the new line can be avoided by using a colon instead of the missing user name, e.g.
{{ Derived fromby = : }}{{ FExample.svg }}{{ Byexample }}<br> - This file was derived from: Example.svg by example
without inbetween spaces; a final new line can be forced manually, as shown, or by passing "br" as a second parameter to {{By}}.
