I received a .svg design made with Inkscape and I need to convert it to .ai to send it to a printer. But when opened with Illustrator, lots of features were changed. Most notably, some of the masks ("clipping" as Inkscape calls them) are not taken into account, (objects that should be cropped were suddenly not) although strangely some of the objects were cropped properly. I also spotted a few issues with the texts, too, but this is easily fixed.
I tried to have the file exported to .pdf instead of .svg and convert that one to .ai in Illustrator, but unfortunately this came with its own set of visual bugs and completely messed up the layers.
So, my questions: 1- Is there an easy way to fix the file, either on the Illustrator or the Inkscape side? Make sure the cropping is properly imported? 2- If there is no easy fix, what are the good practices that can be put in place so that .svg exported from Inkscape are imported in Illustrator without changes? For example, converting texts in vectors is a good way to make sure it doesn't change between the two programs. Same with convertir contour into shapes.
