Also same with 0.48.1.

Ah. May be an issue with gradient strokes. Why not just strip that?

Please provide additional information:
1) Which OS are you using? Do other python-based extensions work as expected?
2) Could you attach a sample SVG file which fails (with the quoted error message) to save as "Desktop Cutting Plotter (R13) (*.dxf)" in the latest stable release and a recent development snapshot build? It would be helpful and allow easier testing with different versions/platforms.

I just tested it by replacing all gradient strokes with solid colors and it worked fine.

Thx, that much was already obvious from your quoted error message.

thanks for the sample svg file, I'll take a look at this next week.

- attached is a modified version of dxf_outlines.py.
- this version avoids the crash by checking to confirm that the color is a valid color before attempting to interpret it.
