While I do realize that this question has bee n asked, and answered, the answers seems to have very mixed results, and unfortunately, the reasoning for the joining in the posts I have found appear to be very different from what I need. So here I am to ask to see if someone can provide a solution or recommendation that is right for what I am in need of.
I have a number of SVG files that are each pages of a larger document, and I would like to be able to combine them into one single file.
The files are not being used on a web page, or anything like that. The previous questions posted on this were asking for SVG image files such as icons or some other images, that were then meant to be used on a web page.
However, in my case, I have for example,, a 30 page example of a Business Plan. Each page of the plan is it's own SVG file. I would like to some how join the images together into one and then either export it to a PDF or Word type format so that (if possible) the text will not be seen as an image and I could modify the document for my needs.
While I do believe concatenating the the multiple files may actually be the easy part, however, since their currently in an SVG format,I don't know if the text mapping exists, and if anything would be able to recognize the text as anything but an image.
I did try using Inkscape since that's one of the better free Vector Image Applications however, while the SVG files are valid, and can be opened on a browsers, (Chrome) for viewing with no issue, Inkscape crashes when I trying to open one of the files with it.
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions, and as a reminder, these images will not be using on a website or anything like that, the intent is to open and edit them in Windows which I know can not be done as they are now.
