No curves get imported at all into Blender, and I'm totally mystified why.
I have a CD of vector pattern library images that I'd like to use within Blender. These appear to be good vector images, i.e. in Inkscape I can see and edit the objects and paths.
I cannot use Trace Bitmap as an option, as these appear to be objects and paths (I'm no svg expert). I cannot convert to raster images and then trace, as that destroys the quality. I have literally hundreds of these images, that I would like to use as extrusions on decorative borders within Blender, but nothing I've tried seems to import the curve data, it comes in as an empty collection.
Before you answer:
This is not a scaling issue.
I tried Trace Bitmap many times - as they are not bitmaps, there's nothing to select or trace.
These appear to be bona fide vectors that I can edit and save. I've tried simplifying the image (destroys it), I've tried every svg format Inkscape offers.
One puzzle which makes me suspicious that these are not true path objects is that there is just a single node on the pink object. I can edit the handles and change its shape, so I assume it's a proper path, but I was expecting to see more nodes that define the curve.
