Dragging and dropping will open the insert the svg in Draw, this bug is about opening the svg in Draw through the open file dialog.

On Windows, trying to open it simply gives:
General Error.
General input/output error

.. just like every SVG file!
Comment 8 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-09-24 20:59:42 UTC
I've reported that Windows only error as bug 84296 and CCed you. If you could add your build number to the bug. That would be great.
Comment 9 Buovjaga 2015-01-07 10:11:30 UTC
Tested on 4.5: now it opens and the only problem is that the 1s and *s next to the connectors have switched from right to left.

Comment 10 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-01-07 12:19:57 UTC
Confirmed that the only thing remaining to be fixed with it is the incorrect placement of the all text (e.g. 'Apple' should be in the center of its box).
