I created a logo where I have a text outline filled with a gradient.
Looks great. Unfortunately, when I convert it to EPS, the gradient fill
is lost. The text outline shows up as empty in both Microsoft Word and
Photoshop. Is this a limitation of EPS itself or of Inkscape's EPS
convertor? (I'm sure I've seen gradients in PostScript documents,
so I suspect the latter.)
It's a limit of Postscript/EPS, or at least, a limit of the version
we're using. It may have been added in later versions of Postscript.
Some fonts simply don't work in Inkscape. For example,
"Modern No. 20"
is rendered as Arial. It's a TrueType font and otherwise unexceptionable.
Report this as a bug, including a pointer to where the font can be
obtained. Font support for Inkscape has improved but is still
not 100% perfect
