I need to edit some building plans received from a customer. Namely, removing a large number of extraneous visual elements so that they can be used in a web application.
Myself and colleagues have tried using various combinations of hardware and software to try and edit the SVGs but all of them result in the machine becoming impossibly slow to use. Some of the things we have tried:
- Ubuntu, Inkscape, 16Gb RAM, Quad-core I5
- Windows, Inkscape
- Windows, Adobe Illustrator
We're tearing our hair out wondering what manner of machine was used to create these SVGs in the first place. Presumably some souped-up Macbook.
