I created a simple drawing in piglet and exported a .svg file. I am unable to select rectangles in 6.14 for editing. If I first load the file into 5.2 and save it as .odg, then I can edit it in 6.1 and add the desired fill. Loading the .svg into 6.1 and saving it as .odg does not fix the problem. Seems like file corruption to me.
Steps to Reproduce:
4. Try to select any of the rectangles
The outline of the drawing is selected instead.
One of the rectangles should be selected.

small .svg file that is corrupted on loading
mcbob, you should right click on svg in Draw and select context menu item Convert to->Polygon, then you select shape, right click on it and select context menu item Ungroup.
And you get your rectangles as different shapes.
Armin, is it a bug or it's expected behavior when insert SVG file into Draw?
I just tried it on 22.214.171.124 (stable), and the file is loaded correctly
It fails in 126.96.36.199 as I originally reported.
I also tried 188.8.131.52, and the problem is still there
This is not a rendering problem. I don't think it has anything to do with the graphics stack. This is file corruption on load. It does not appear in the stable released versions.
Roman, I do not get that context menu. On loading the file it seems that the .svg has been inserted into a blank file rather than opening the file for editing. I cannot select or edit anything inside the .svg. None of the stable versions have this problem as far as I know.
Roman, I tried again and found the menu item. That does indeed fix the drawing.
Ungrouping was not required in any previous version that I have used. It is
a change in behavior that will confuse others as well as me.
I leave it for you guys to decide whether this is a bug or a feature.
Thanks for the help.
Just to confirm, this change is due to https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/plugins/gitiles/core/+/3ca7be09834a26fbd1c371deabd7a58111092676%5E!/
Replace SVGFilter using SVGIO
How to do it in LibreOffice 6.3, 6.4 or master
1. Open svg file with Draw
2. Right click - break
-> Now you can edit the different rectangles for edition.
