Issue with importing file from Inkscape

I’m new to Easel Pro, still waiting for my Xcarve. I have created a very basic carve and each time I try to import it from Inkscape into Easel. When I do I keep getting this error message
I try to go to Inkscape and select everything and then I do CTRL+Shift+C but nothing happens. I have also tried to covert image all to path. Nothing is working. Anybody that can I would appreciate it.


(EDIT: After re-reading your post you were creating discrete vectors all and good, but the embedded text is still part of the file. This copy/paste into a new instance of inkscape is the method that I’ve always used, however I know there are other methods to not included embeds in the file, i just find this copy/paste method simple enough to perform…& it’s worked for me every time going on 3 years now… :man_shrugging: so you can just jump ahead to that part in this video if you like :+1:)

The Text needs to be converted (you were doing this already) and then pasted into a new instance of inkscape Like this:

Thnks Seth that worked perfect. I never realized it but the wreath was the one not a vector. Thnx for your help.

Im getting a similar error message when trying to upload an already existing “AI” file into inkscape. Copy, paste into a new instance and save as SVG basic. Literally my first night using inkscape so by all means, you can consider me a rookie with design software. My goal is to upload into easel with a bit more accuracy than converting to a jpeg and utilizing image trace.

what am i doing wrong here, do i need to further convert ai files into svg before opening them into inkscape?

You may also need to perform the object to path step … you can double click the designs to verify that they are noded vectors and not just an image embedded into the svg file…
