Here is the thing: folder2.svg is created by me, and folder1.svg - by someone else. As you can see on the screenshot the first icon looks crisp and nice, and my icon has fuzzy edges and coners, the background object isn't fully covered, although the objects in my folder2.svg file have the same size:

Can someone, please, help me solve this problem? How do I make such fancy icons as folder1.svg?

    Hi, can you post a link to both files please? The sizes you've shown are not the same for each icon. If this is a typo and they're the same size I suspect you just need to remove the stroke from the objects in your version. Hth

  1. Round the width and height of the object.
  2. Enable 1px grid and align object to it.
  3. Check X,Y,Width,Height


  • Good x=242px y=54px width=48px height=47px
  • Bad x=242.002px y=54.4px width=48.5px height=47.999px

    Please explain better what you mean. What are the meanings of x, y, width and height (which unit?). Why the rounding, what is the advantage? And at last can you show what to do with some scrennshot(s)?

  • Look at update. In the picture above the maximum zoom to display the 1pixels grid.
