Bug Description

Sorry if this is in the wrong place. I chose Request feature, filled out the form and submitted and it did not appear to go though. I am submitting again hoping this works this time.

This is a Feature Request.

I use Flash Catalyst and Flash builder to design and build business applications in Adobe Flex and AIR. I prefer Inkscape as my Vector editor of choice. What would be really nice to see is for Inkscape to support the Adobe FXG Format which I believe is published as a standard now.

FXG is used by all adobe software now to trade graphics details for use in other IDE's they offer. Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder both have the ability to import FXG files for use in projects. If Inkscape supported this format any Flash Applications designer could build their graphics in Inkscape and import them into Catalyst or Flash Builder easily. This would make Inkscape a nice alternative to Adobe graphics products when the complexity or price of such is not warranted or possible.

Exporting to FXG is now available in the trunk (see Bug #625140 “Support export to FXG”).
It doesn't convert all the SVG features, but some just don't exist in FXG and thus are very difficult to implement with workarounds. I'm still working on it anyway. Details available in the report.

Not sure the opposite conversion is worth the effort. As far as I understand, most Flex users just want to use Inkscape as their vector editor, and importing FXG probably is far less useful than exporting.
