File:Envelope cast.svg

@User:Incnis Mrsi, could you please help fix the font problems in this image? I changed to Helvetica, as well as the UTF hyphen-minuses. But apparently the rendered PNGs are not working correctly. --Shiyu Ji (talk) 21:11, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

Did you look for a font-family in meta: SVG fonts? Unsure where did you get an idea that Helvetica and other proprietary fonts have to be supported here, even hypothetically. Install free fonts, yourself, and use them. Also look at Commons:Village_pump/Archive/2018/01 #More fonts now available for SVG rendering. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 21:21, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
The SVG is a full (garbage) of redundant code, all code is duplicated 100 times (error in the Gnuplot function), which makes the font display really worse. @JoKalliauer: That would be a task for RazrFalcon, but his tool can also not handle this code (should kill all double code, we should open an issue there). -- User: Perhelion 23:27, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
I repaired the Source-Code, now the Gnuplot makes one plot with 100 red Lines instead of 100 Plots over each other with one red line each. Now Gnuplot would create a valid file (without postprocessing).  — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 00:11, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
@Perhelion: I think there is no need that I upload the file created with the new source code, since it looks identical?  — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 00:11, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
Oh* good, yes I think so. :-) -- User: Perhelion 00:17, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
Double lines and text should not be removed if they have ocupacy. If you use two times the same line, RazrFalcon would also have to assure that they have the same attributes in groups which are above. Yes thats a possible feature, but in my opinion it is not necessary. In this case I prefer fixing the source-code of Gnuplot. Sometimes you might need to create objects at the same place in different groups and then replace the groups manually. Therfore I wouldn't stat a new issue. But it is up to you.  — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 00:20, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
@JoKalliauer: OK, may you are right here. There are some more graphs with this error (from this user). Maybe you can fix these: File:Envelope string art.svg, File:Envelope astroid.svg. gn8 -- User: Perhelion 00:45, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
Will be fixed tomorrow (or actually today in some hours)  — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 00:56, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
  Done File:Envelope string art.svg, File:Envelope astroid.svg, File:Drini nonuniformconvergence SVG.svg, File:Sintay SVG.svg  — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 09:49, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

@JoKalliauer:, I greatly appreciate your efforts, but could you also get ASCII balderdash for minus signs out of File:Envelope astroid.svg and File:Sintay SVG.svg? Note that were I overly pedantic, I could also sue for italic k in Envelope_string_art.svg. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:11, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
