Inkscape import ODG (Open Office Draw Document)

Bug #171430 reported by Rglaue on 2006-07-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Request for Inscape to import ODG files

ODG (Open Office Draw) export functionality is
supported in version .44 and it would be great if
import of ODG files could be supported too.

If export is being done, it would seem not to hard to
create an import feature as well.

I would not make any assumptions about the difficulty but if
it is easy then certainly patches welcome and I'm sure the
developer would appreciate your help.

Importing is often a lot harder than exporting. Exporting
needs to put out a file one way and follow the standard as
strictly as possible, whereas importing needs to deal with
files which have been exported in various different ways and
may not have strictly followed the standards (and that is in
cases where you have well written standards).

You might want to get in touch with the developer and offer
to help or sponsor the work or perhaps even help test the
feature using the latest unstable builds.

Also please make sure there are not already
existing/duplicate reports requesting this feature.

Please do try to put future reports in the relevant

Thanks for the feedback.
