A .SVG file is a native vector graphics file and it seems to me that your script is just embedding the bmp into a .svg file - It's clear that's not what you want to accomplish. Exporting or embedding a raster file in a vector file will not yield a useful conversion. The .bmp would probably need to be recreated as a vector file in order to function as ...

If you want perfectly smooth curves, then auto tracing a poor quality bitmap is probably not the best way to do it. Instead, you could manually trace over the lines of the bitmap with the Bézier tool set to apply an ellipse as the Shape in the tool options. This creates a Path Effect. Then you could alter the thickness of the Path Effect by clicking and ...

A little late to the party, but I found that if you Print to File File → Print → Print to File, it works fine. This was on an Ubuntu machine, but this prevented me having to turn the text into un-editable objects.

Not sure what the compressor does exactly, but one simple way would be adding a transparent rectangle to the artboard that covers the whole area.

No, SVG files are not sensitive to indentation or line breaks. They are sensitive to certain spaces (such as the space between <path and d in <path d...). You can run an SVG through a minifier like SVGOMG and see for yourself that indentation and line breaks are removed.

I don't see how anyone could come up with a solution to this. Even if you export in black and white, this may still be a huge file, as PNG is not a practical format at this file size. I'd look at ways to break up the artwork into numbered tiles. Every game, every brochure, every product catalogue, every magazine, etc in the world is made up of pieces which ...

There isn't a way to change Illustrator's default 72ppi setting, as far as I'm aware. The problem you are describing has been around for some time, and there are questions about it on the Adobe community site, but still no fix from Adobe. Adobe doesn't currently seem to care about SVG standards, and I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a fix. Here's my ...

This may be a small consolation. Whilst I haven't found any easy method to have Illustrator and Inkscape utilise the same DPI system to transfer between each other with SVG's. I did however find that if I save the Illustrator files in their native .AI format, when opened in Inkscape they will be dimensionally accurate. If someone finds a better solution ...
