Summary0000593: SVG export encodes 'style' in a hard-to-see way
DescriptionFreeCAD encodes sketches into SVG files in a way that leaves the sketches invisible.

Here is a section of an SVG incorrectly exported by FreeCAD (reformatted for clarity):

            stroke-width="0.02 px"

Two issues make this circle hard to see.

1. Note that the stroke color is white (#ffffff), which blends in against the white background usually used to display SVG files (for example by inkscape, firefox, and rsvg-view). Changing it to black (#000000) makes it much more visible.

2. The stroke width is 0.02 pixels. Changing it to 1 pixel makes it much more visible.
TagsNo tags attached.

There is no easy solution to this, many colors will be hard to see in other applications with other backgrounds... But we could at least make everything white export in black. I'll also add a preferences option too so users can disable if needed.

Fixed in commit 601d292b54f2663d727b856f72c78672ceaa0b23

In Draft preferences there is now an option that allows to render white objects as black when exporting to SVG.
