SVGZ File
Hi,

I have an SVGZ file.

Can I manipulate it and save it in the same format in GIMP?

Thanks

Thank you

Also, If you want to edit your svg further in Gimp after editing it in Inkscape. You might have to make an export copy of it in .BMP format in Inkscape first.

RE: SVGZ File
FWIW

Inkscape will only export in png format
edit I had better expand on that, that is the export bitmap option, which is the way to go.
You might find a bitmap option in Save-As, Cairo png is known to be buggy, gimp xcf is there, does it work, sometimes


Gimp will open a SVGZ vector same as an uncompressed SVG
Either click-n-drag into the 'wilbur' area top of the tools dialog
or using File -> Open then in the drop down box of file formats select All files so that the svgz shows.

Depends how complicated the SVG is, some objects such as gradients might not show.

But that defeats the OP requirement of "save in the same format" so it is back to Inkscape Smile

RE: SVGZ File
Thanks to all
Time for a little experimentation

Ps. I have noticed in KUBUNTU that vector graphics are often used. Any idea why vector over bitmap graphics are chosen.
