Re: Cataloguing & Converting Bluecurve Icons

I can start converting them to SVG. The reason I haven't thus far - if you convert a whole ai sheet to SVG, it croaks when you try to open it in Inkscape - I don't think through any fault of Inkscape, I think just because Illustrator isn't real swift at exporting SVG. Sigh. I'm probably going to have to break the sheets into chunks to get this to work - If anybody else has Illustrator and is willing to help let me know and we can divy them up.

A possible solution learned from an Illustrator user on Open Clip Art Library: at export turn off "Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilites"

My manual solution: open the SVG file in a text editor and delete
everything encompassed by <i:pgf id="adobe_illustrator_pgf"> and </i:pgf> - make a script to automate it if needed.

Those will greatly reduce the size of the SVG files, hope Inkscape will be able to open them after the file size reduction.
