Inkscape Text Saved as Synfig file

Hello. When I save an inskape drawing with text as a synfig file and open the file in synfig I get weird results. Is there a way to fix this?

Hi. I tried to use that package. Now the synfig files exported from inkscape are completely blank, showing no text at all. Before I was using the default exporter

Ok. I opened your file. The text seems correct

I attached a sample where I trid to convert my text to vector.

I made the text then went to path>>object to path

I saved this as an *.sif

I still had the same problem.

3. ungroup
4. union

What is Descovine and covine?

I think I see the problem. The path of the 'A' below is you file. the one above is my file. I am not getting that extra cut in the path.

I tried join, combine, group, ungroup and I get the same result

what version of inkscape do you use?

Thanks bazza. I tried the methods in this thread. All of them. I have narrowed the problem down to just shapes that have enclosures like "R" "P" "A" "D" and especially "B" because it has two enclosures. There does not seem to be a way around this. Not even with "break apart" and "exclusion". I even tried using the extensions>synfig>prepare for export and got the same results. what version synfig do you have. When I open your file it says that is was created with an earlier version of synfig. Please include the version of synfig you are using it says that the file is 90DPI instead of 96DPI. Maybe that is a clue. Thanks.

I have been unable to reproduce the extra edge that you get. I tried to make my own extra edges. the results were not good.
