Text Elements in SVG

3/10/2016 9:14 PM

I am using the DXF Sharp Viewer to convert AutoCAD files to SVG. They are maps with a lot of street detail and most streets are labeled with the street names. When I convert to SVG, the text elements convert to pure poly-line geometry instead of SVG Text elements. The text geometry then accounts for over 80% of the filesize and makes the files rather large and unwieldy.

Is there anything I can do to enable the conversion to save the text as SVG text elements instead?

Hi Phil,

I've added settings for whether to convert text to shapes or not for PDF and SVG export. The default values are now false. Please download and install the latest viewer version.
