I had created a rectangle and was trying to use the trace bitmap feature to make a SVG copy but the copy was not being created.

This is what i did

  • Did you make the rectangle in Inkscape?

Your rectangle already is in vector format, all you need to do is save it as an SVG.

The reason the tracing failed, is that you aren't tracing a bitmap image, rather you were attempting to trace a vector shape.
