Description dake 2006-03-22 17:14:22 UTC
Some SVG containing arrows are not correctly rendered : (arrows
between the rotating belt)

The Van de Graaff generator has been drawn using Inkscape 0.43 (Linux).
Comment 1 dake 2006-03-22 17:17:56 UTC
Just wanted to add that the problem seems to be related to an Inkscape property :   

inkscape:stockid="Arrow2Lend" <--------- this is probably ignored
Comment 2 Mathieu Clabaut 2006-03-22 21:22:03 UTC
Just a note to say that I have redo a version of with manula arrows
head. So, in order to look at the problem, either use or an older
version of ''Aikido_ikkyo.svg''.

(In reply to comment #1)
I'm not sure it has anything to do with that property, it's more likely caused
by librsvg ignoring the "overflow:visible" style. Inkscape's default markers are
defined outside their bounding box and therefore rely on the overflow to be
visible in order to look correct. Librsvg, hovewer, ignores this overflow
attribute (

I guess this is a duplicate of

Don't know if this is the same bug: looks fine on the full-
size image page, but the thumbnail on
title=NPN&oldid=46322776 is missing the emitter arrow.

I think this is a duplicate of bug 5163...
Comment 7 Christopher Martin 2006-05-29 05:16:40 UTC
Indeed, I can't get MediaWiki to render SVG line terminators at all...
[[:Image:Metal type.svg]]
This image should have arrows and dots, neither of which appear.
Comment 8 Stéphane Brunner 2007-02-20 07:21:14 UTC
On this image ( I
have as a problem with arrow they are really small, in Firefox
or in Inkscape the arrows will be really bigger !!!

Is it the same bug, is there a work around ?
Comment 9 Gustav Broberg 2007-08-31 23:25:07 UTC
This bug has been fixed upstream.

Upgrading to librsvg >= 2.18 would solve this.

Comment 11 Tim Starling 2008-10-14 04:47:37 UTC
Looks OK now that we have librsvg 2.22.0. The arrows in the first test case point the wrong way, but the rest of the test cases seem to be correct so I'll assume that the first one is an author issue.
