We use a lot of SVG's here, ie graphs of plots, but without any problems
at all really. Very occasionally I have seen minor issues when the SVG
has a gradient in it, but there were a lot of fixes that really helped
around version 126.96.36.199.-6 The PDF's generated with the SVG files are
perfect and give excellent vector graphics, exactly what you need for
Its a dumb question, but what version of Scribus are you using ? If its
older that 188.8.131.52 (ish) that may be the reason.
Probably best to post one of your problematic SVG's to the bug tracker,
and one of the friendly Scribus dev's will take a look and see if it
works for them in Scribus ok.
