I have the following directory structure:


This is the content of main.tex:



This is chapter/chapter1.tex:

    \includesvg[width=0.7\textwidth, svgpath = img/]{image}

How to use import package to keep relative path references in subfiles and at the same time use svg files?

If I use the svg in a main file and not in a subfile, it's generated correctly.

  • Does svg work normally on your system? Did you ever try it without \import or svgpath? Consider egreg's comment – Symbol 1 Mar 1 '15 at 6:53
  • Yes, as I said at the end, this works properly without import. Without svgpath attribute it won't work. – bryant1410 Mar 2 '15 at 6:34
  • Oops, missed that. It looks like svg package does know the correct path and did try it. You can prove/disprove it by testing any other extensions (.png/.jpg/etc). Turns out this package reports poor error messages so I cannot tell where things go wrong. A stupid fix may be adding the current directory in \Ginput@path to svgpath by hand. – Symbol 1 Mar 2 '15 at 7:06
  • How can I add \Ginput@path to svgpath? Can you give an example? I've tried, but failed. – bryant1410 Mar 2 '15 at 9:01



to the start of chapter1.tex works.
