These are two completely different functions. They are not redundant to each other. Convert Colors is used to manipulate things like document color space, applying color profiles, and altering the color of objects within the document. Mapping deals with reassigning spot colors to other specific colors in a non-destructive way. Spot swatches can be flagged so ...

Inkscape has no background attribute as such, although it does have pagecolor which can be set in the document properties (it shows up as "background" in the UI, but appears as "pagecolor" in the XML). The problem however is that the pagecolor attribute is not supported in SVG and so it will be lost when you export as plain SVG. Instead you could try ...

had the same problem: turns out my color formatting was set to RGB, not CMYK. I haven't the slightest clue why that makes a difference when exporting gradients in a PDF, but switching the color Profile to CMYK fixed it for me.

You notice the l's and i's on the right are fine, because that text is probably not outlined. However this is just a display glitch, if you print the artwork it will be fine. The issue is well known: https://...

The complextity of the elements somehow seems to exceed limits of PostScript or PDF. If you save your SVG as Optimized SVG, you can reduce that complexity quite a bit. While Inkscape still has the same problems with the optimized version, I used another app, Sketch to open it and export the PDF, and it seems to work fine. → PDF

I must admit analyzing SVGs properly, especially this one, is a little too complex for non-programmers. But do a workaround: Make a bitmap copy of the problematic shape. It's in the Edit menu. Remove or close the original in the Objects panel. You do not lose anything because it already seems to be rasterized, only wrapped in a complex way in the file ...

You end up buying them - that's the long and the short of it. You look in the font file, and somewhere there will be information on the font foundry which created it, or you look up online, and you purchase as much of the font as you need - if you're not an active graphic designer using this font in a wide range of applications, you may get by with the ...
