I've downloaded the templates and am using version 0.4.2 on a Mac OSX 10.6.4. In the Parts Editor, I am making a new part from scratch (using the templates). I have successfully loaded the part as an SVG image in Breadboard view, but the schematic view part is cropped along the top and sometimes along the right side. I'm using Illustrator CS5 and saving the SVG file in SVG Tiny 1.2 format, and I've tried using the "Fit to Artwork Bounds" in the Artboard mode. Depending on how the image is cropped, I can get the right side to appear but the top is gone. I've even tried outlining the fonts in case this was a problem; it's not. Do you have any suggestions?
Problem resolved. I copied and pasted the schematic artwork into a new file, and re-saved it as an SVG Tiny 1.2 file, and it imported ok.
