SVG files with Layers import to CC

The feature request is to include the SVG layers on import.

I am using InkScape for designs. A have a single SVG file with multiple Layers.
Each Layer was generated using different Trace techniques, which will get different tools.

When I import the SVG the layers do not come across to CC.
CC will not allow you to import multiple SVG files into a single CC model.

I have to create multiple SVG and CC files in order to make this work.
This means changes may effect multiple files.

If the SVG extents on a given layer are different, CC moves the SVG contents which make re-alignment tough. I add the same extents box to all files in InkScape so CC handles them the same.

Do you mean all at once? Because otherwise, you can import as many SVGs as you want.


The open dialog allows a single SVG. I must have missed a separate import option. Hmmm.

Keeping Layers would still be nice.

Use the “Import External File” command to bring in additional files (works for DXFs or SVGs).

I just found it, I was assuming image file types. Thanks !

To separate by Layer i would pre-make the Layers on CC.
Activate a Layer and import, repeat. Got it.

I will still have to make an extents box in InkScape so the merged SVG are located correctly relative to each other…

So what I am looking for can be done by procedure, but I am sticking to the request for CC honor SVG layers.
