I have a found several issues when importing SVG files found on Wikipedia to CorelDRAW X7. Whenever I import one, there are many artifacts or glitches.

Examples are: Map of the German Empire within Europe, circa 1914 where the German Empire is missing, and UK is moved southwards

Coat of arms of the Lands of the Holy Hungarian Crown where several elements expand past the image, even pas the visible field.

On their own the SVGs are rendered correctly in Internet Explorer or even in the online SVG Editor.

I look forward as to what may be the cause and the solution to my problem.

  • You'll need to ask the folks developing Corel. – Scott Aug 4 '15 at 17:19

The workarround I found for you is that you download Inkscape https://inkscape.org.

Then save it as eps. Now you can import this eps.

  • It is only a workaround, it does work, but I have to play with Inkscape s as to not loose the groupings. But as Scott stated it seems to be a Corel issue, so I shall turn to them. – Martin Handrlica Aug 5 '15 at 11:18
  • Report it and wait till the next version X8 Is on the market... Xo) – Rafael Aug 5 '15 at 20:09
