Please can you advise me ? I made posters in Inkscape, being equations on coloured backgrounds. I blurred the equations because I think it looks “artistic” 🙂 I then saved the Inkscape .svg files to pdf files, and had a copy shop print them out. On printing, the text has acquired a rectangular background of a colour which contrasts with the rest of the page:
How can I avoid this ? On screen there was no such rectangle.
Opening the svg in internet explorer, it looks fine, i.e. there is no contrasting rectangle.
The Inkscape settings I used to save as pdf are:
Restrict to PDF version 1.5.
Convert text to paths: UNCHECKED
PDF and Latex: Omit text in pdf, and create LaTeX file: unchecked.
Rasterize Filter effects: checked. (Otherwise the text will not be blurred in the pdf file.)
Resolution for rasterization: 300 dpi
Output page size: Use document’s page size
Bleed / margin (mm) 0.0
I don’t know how to work with Layers.
The svg code is here:
My answer probably doesn’t help with your issue from the program itself but you could now just print the SVG from the jsfiddle link.
You have to turn the fill to 0
<rect style="opacity:1;fill:#63058f;fill-opacity:1;stroke:#ffffff;stroke-width:0.08000001;stroke-miterlimit:4;stroke-dasharray:none;stroke-opacity:1" id="rect4291" width="663.66199" height="917.18317" x="-31.549295" y="-36.983276" />
<rect style="opacity:1;fill:#fffffff;fill-opacity:0;stroke:#ffffff;stroke-width:0.08000001;stroke-miterlimit:4;stroke-dasharray:none;stroke-opacity:1" id="rect4291" width="663.66199" height="917.18317" x="-31.549295" y="-36.983276" />
See example https://jsfiddle.net/5qs1sffh/
This will take out the background color of the graphic and you are going to be left with the shade of blue or whatever you make the background color. I just removed the color from your SVG graphic.
An alternative to this is to make the background the same color as the background color in the SVG.
