front panel drawing where writer fails to render the test correctly

Writer imports many svg files without a problem. However, whenever an svg file which includes the "vector-effect=non-scaling-stroke" property in inserted into a document the result of blocky and burred. These files are rendered correctly by Firefox and Chrome browsers.

Please attach a sample svg and then set to UNCONFIRMED. Thanks

Confirmed the thickness when compared to Firefox.
Inkscape has the same error, though..

Firefox 60.0.1 (64-Bit) and Inkscape 0.92.3 (2405546, 2018-03-11) render the file correctly.

Issue reproducible in Writer and Draw (no difference between inserting as graphics in Writer or opening directly in Draw).

Dear Ian Thompson-Bell,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
