Summary0000592: SVG export of circles in multi-element groups is incorrect
DescriptionThere is a bug when FreeCAD exports circles as part of multi-element sketches (exporting a sketch containing just a circle works fine).

The attached file contains a sketch consisting of a rectangle and a circle. The bug can be reproduced by opening the file in FreeCAD, selecting the sketch, and exporting it as SVG. The exported SVG file contains a group with two paths. The first path is the rectangle, and it is correctly encoded. The second path is meant to be the circle, but it is incorrectly encoded.

For reference, please see section F.6.2 of the SVG spec, <> It states:

"If the endpoints (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are identical, then this is equivalent to omitting the elliptical arc segment entirely."

Yet this is exactly how FreeCAD encodes the circle in the rectangle. (A sketch containing a circle by itself is encoded by a correctly formed SVG "circle" element.)

Manually changing the encoding the circle to two half-circles fixes the problem.
