Bug Description

SVG files exported from Gephi are not correctly imported in Adobe Illustrator, the stroke weight is not correct.

It seems Illustrator uses the viewbox correctly for scaling shapes but doesn't scale stroke weight.

The attachment shows the sample file "Les Miserables.gexf" as rendered in Illustrator CS4. It can be compared with PDF output.

An option to scale stroke-width has been added to the SVG settings, as it depends on the program used to open the SVG
- 'true' for opening in Adobe Illustrator
- 'false' for Inkscape
