I had a look at your SVG. When opened in Inkscape 1.0, I can't see any evidence of blending modes, although I can see it when I examine the XML. What version of Inkscape are you using? SVG blending modes used to be a bit iffy with patchy support in browsers, but modern browsers now seem to support SVG layers with Blending modes. Perhaps consider moving the ...

As Joojaa mentioned in comments, each renderer or editor can interpret SVG filters differently. The best solution is to "flatten" the filter (if your filter makes blue turn into pink, fill your object with pink instead).

I figured it out in the end, I had to disable the following:

I am using Adobe Photoshop Version: 19.1.5 Grab a pen tool. On a topbar you must be chosen Combine Shape mode. Steps to follow: 1) Make two segments where: each segment will be considered as a line (in this case each line segment a.k.a path is represented in red color) [image 1]. 2) Do a direct selection of the segment endpoint on the right hand side ...

You have already got a visually perfect receipe (by Mr.Kerr). Many of us like to evaporate the parts which are not any more visible under the clipping mask. If you have taken for ex. a snippet from OpenStreetMap there can easily be 5000% unwanted stuff hanging around, the clipping mask makes it only invisible but it's there making the machine slower and ...

The easiest way is probably to group the artwork, then draw a path with the Pen Tool to define the area you want to cut out, then select both artwork and path, and do Object > Clipping Mask > Make. If you want to retain the outline, copy it before applying the clipping mask, then apply the clipping mask, then do Edit > Paste in Place to get the ...

You have a flat image. It doesn't contain 3D information for other views. You would need a 3D model to get other views automatically (=rotate). In theory an Artificial Intelligence application who knows enough of our world could guess which 3D shape fits into your flat image, but I haven't seen such program for sale. Knowing our world means in this case ...

I guess your path is more complex than you assume. You didn't open the path between adjacent nodes. Put option Show Path Outline =ON in the info panel or insert temporarily a stroke. Show outline happens if the node tool is selected. There's also extension Visualize Path > Node numbers to show the order. Use it only as preview. If this guess was right and ...

You can not create nonmanifold geometry. One can not just merge any node with any other node. You can only merge the endpoints or adjacent nodes together. The modeling paradigm of 2D vector drawing applications only allows you to do the allmost minimal set of that make sense for the rendering engine. The fact that you wish to do something is irrelevant for ...

"Join" does not mean "merge" or "combine". Join refers to connecting two nodes with a path between them. Typically you can't "merge" two nodes into one. I'm not an Inkscape user, but in most apps, you want to join the two nodes, then delete one of the nodes (retaining the path) if the goal is a single node. In your ...

After furiously digging through hundreds of online posts, articles and queries with similar-but-not-quite-the-same issues, I still couldn't find an answer that effectively resolved this particular problem. I explored every option I could think of, and after several attempts (and a possible concussion resulting from repeatedly bashing my head against my desk),...

Further to the comments, the problem is because you changed the background colour in the settings: Simulate Colored Paper. If you do that, and also have the Overprint Preview enabled, this will cause the problem. You can toggle the Overprint Preview on/off by hitting Alt+Shift+Ctrl+Y Note that the option to simulate paper is for showing what will happen if ...

Either your rectangle is faulty or your Illustrator version makes errors. Here's my attempt. I use legacy stuff. In the left there's a circle as Illustrator draws it with the ellipse tool. It has got no transforms after it was drawn. The rectangle is drawn with the rectangle tool and rotated around the center of the circle. Inside the red circle the joint ...

This is probably also available via Acrobat Pro: in InDesign's export to PDF panel you have options to password-protect files against printing, editing and/or copying of text. Not sure if this works for you, but it is something to consider instead of having huge files with outlined text.

Since I was beaten to the better answer I will offer an alternative :) In this case, you can also resolve within Acrobat Pro if you have it. First, change the font of the circles. This can be achieved with Edit PDF. Change them to a common font or one installed on your system like Arial. In this case I just dragged a box over all the circles and changed the ...

A guess: The circles are actually pieces of text. The font is included to the PDF and it's available for the PDF reader but Illustrator refuses to read it because Adobe doesn't help uncontrolled font distributing. You would have a theoretical possibility to write something without paying for a font. Try to open the PDF in Inkscape. Import can work because ...

Make sure you're not placing TEXT symbols, but use actual circle shapes instead. Otherwise, the circles may still be there, but may have been enclosed into rectangular clipping masks and turned the fills into outlines. This kind of thing happens sometimes when importing work generated from other software into AI. What you can do is hit CTRL+Y which switches ...

As per Scott's answer, you have a compound path which can only have one stroke attribute. Here's a workaround with instructions specifically for Inkscape Select the object and do Edit > Duplicate Do Path > Break apart - this will release the compound path Select the outer piece, delete it, leaving the filled circle inside Select the filled circle In ...

I'm not an Inkscape user. Typically with compound shapes you can't define a stroke on only one section or part of a compound shape. The entire purpose of a compound shape is that it's seen as one object. You need to duplicate the circle and apply a stroke to the duplicate if you wish to retain the "hole" or "counter" in the full shape.

You can switch off the transform behaviour in Preferences > Behaviour > Transforms, and choose "Optimise" instead of "Preserve". However if you then move paths, Inkscape will recalculate the path positions, and add its own styles. I know of no way to prevent that. However, when I do this the shapes and curves do not change visually. I can't replicate that ...
