Inkscape doesn't seem to support visibility="hidden" (which would be
shifted into the "style" attribute by Inkscape). It does support
display:none in the Object properties dialog (Hide check box). It
shouldn't be too hard to add support for visibility.
Yes I realized it just after I set the email.
For all practical purposes display:none and visibility:hidden. The gui
implementation is fine I just missed it.
I'm not overly trilled that it's part of the style, mean I have to
to do it.

This can already be done using the "Links attributes" dialog. See:
Wow. That is some strange gymnastic. That could be simplified a bit.
But thanks for the info.

Adding visibility would be easy... once Inkscape actually supports the
Yes but as I said above in my case display:none; will do just fine. I
just want something to go away when I click somewhere.

Adding <switch> to Inkscape would be non-trivial. You would probably
want to have to have a mechanism to choose which branch is selected from
within Inkscape (i.e. choose between French, Spanish, and Italian in the
above example) so that you can edit on-screen each separately. It would
be nice but I don't see this happening soon.
yes. I would imagine it would be a massive amount of work. Considering
you'd have to create something to handle the text, style and positioning
of each separate language.
