Bug Description

I make SVG fonts using inkscape and then convert them to TTF using http://onlinefontconverter.com/ . I give the SVG font name, font-family name and the exporting file name. but when i install converted TTF font on my windows 7 it shows (on the left corner of the opened font window frame) another name font 3933 (OpenType) . When i want to install another font (which i made using the same way) the font overwrites to old font. is there any option to change this font 3933 name ?

I attached the picture "font3933.PNG" that may help you (and me).
thanks in advance.

Please add information about OS/platform and Inkscape version (see Inkscape menu 'Help > About Inkscape') to the bug description.

To allow further investigation, please attach two Inkscape SVG files - each with a different SVG font - which unexpectedly get converted to TTF fonts with the same font name.

I would be interesting to investigate where in your SVG file is an object called font3933 (very likely a font element with id="font3933"). Renaming it to the wanted font name would probably give good results.

Anyway, it seems the bug is not due to Inkscape itself, but to the way the online font converter uses the SVG file to extract the font name, and thus I'm converting the report to a question in the "Answers" section of the website.

@~suv. I've tested locally, and the converter uses the font id as the font name:

...
    <font
       horiz-adv-x="1024"
       id="font9305"
       inkscape:label="fonte 1">
...

Is converted to a file named font9405.ttf.
AFAIKT, nothing unexpected here.
