svg text not showing

I am new to plugin dev. I have everything working except for the svg import part. I tried to generate svgs in Inkspace and Gravity Designer with the same results: the svg does not show text. I know from Laguna Ruiz tutorials that the svg compiler in VCV is flawed. I was wondering if there are any solutions? (it is not a matter or opacity)

See: SVG Limitations in the VCV Manual.

tl;dr: Text/Fonts not supported in nanosvg used by Rack. In your SVG editor, convert text to paths, or you can draw the text in code using the text api.


Thanks much!
