I'm trying to make simple icons to use with Fontello. When I export what I've made as an svg and try importing it to fontello, it won't import it properly and it complains:

"If image looks not as expected please convert to compound path manualy. Skipped tags and attributes: stroke,stroke-width,fill,fill-rule"

My question then: how do I join all these paths? Especially the ones that aren't even touching?


Update: I'm unable to bring shapes from Sketch to Icomoon either. The svg file is here for anyone who wants to have a look at what I'm doing. The Sketch file is here.

  • Have you tried to drag "Path 3" into "Path 1" group, so that all of the 3 layers are within "Path 1"?

Pretty sure you can simply ignore the Fontello error. Works fine when I give it a go.

Feel free to download the Sketch & SVG file that I used here http://ge.tt/8LyJbb12 (it also includes the resulting Fontello zip file)

UPDATE: just tried it with your Sketch file, all you have to do is convert the lines to strokes: Layer / Paths / Vectorize Stroke, and you're set!

  • Hummmm Yeah. Your version works perfectly. How did you make the shape? It looks like it isn't a group, but yet it's all "grouped" together. I'd love to get some details from you!

  • Ah sorry, didn't see this comment before I updated my answer, but all you have to do is convert the lines to strokes: Layer / Paths / Vectorize Stroke. Grouping (or placing it on an Artboard as I did) doesn't really matter. It should work now. Commented Oct 14, 2014 at 14:36
  • Ack. Still wont work for me. Did you join paths or something first?

  • Could you upload your sketch file again (sorry I deleted it a bit too quick) and I'll describe exactly what I did. Commented Oct 14, 2014 at 14:46
  • Sure! dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/984813/… Really appreciate the help!
