Export SVG function in Fireworks only creates outline
There's a pretty big problem I'm having with Aaron Bealle's Export to SVG script in Fireworks:
So I have a path in Fireworks that I created from a marquee selection (which came from the
magic wand, some
Let's take this image I vectorized in Fireworks from a drawing by someone at the NHS Designs in Sacramento as an example.
When the path is exported as an SVG using the Export script â€” only the outer edge is taken into account.
So what I get is a black shape on a transparent/white background. (When in fact the black shape was more complicated than that â€” but was still a single path.)
How do I fix this?
Seems like compound path is not supported.
But i am able to get it working by
- Do a "Split Path" - this will turn every element into a separate path object
- Select the 2 background object and do a "Punch Compound Shape" using the Property Inspector
- this is to divide the outline from the rest
