I work with a lot of Matlab figures which were exported to SVG-files. Matlab produces a lot of garbage alongside the actual image (mainly invisible lines). So there is a lot to clean up after importing an image to have a clean .pdf_tex export for an inclusion in my Latex document. I do this cleaning in the XML editor window by deleting any object which is not part of the actual image (click on it and press delete, wastes a lot of time).
After importing several SVGs, my ID numbers in Inkscape a getting very high with big gaps in between (e.g. 9229, 10503, 24219 ...). So I wondered if it's possible to reset them to have consecutive numbers?
It would really facilitate that cleaning process I described above.
Thanks for your help!
