I am writing a document in LyX 2.1.4 on Mac OS 10.11 using MacTeX-2015. I insert svg files created in Inkscape 0.91. Some of them are entirely created in Inkscape. Some are outputs from R that I imported into Inkscape from pdf and edited a bit.
What happens if I compile the document via pdflatex is the following:
- some graphics have black rectangles over the image (I think where text boxes where)
- some have a white rectangle over the image (also where the text boxes are supposed to be)
- some graphics have text boxes or other boxes inverted so that the content is a mirror image of itself
The part of the svg that originated from R usually is alright. Mainly the parts I added in Inkscape show this strange behavior. All svgs look alright if I open them in any Viewer and also if I export them to pdf directly from Inscape.
I recently had the thing with the black boxes in a poster I created in Inkscape. But now the pdf export directly from Inkscape looks alright.
I can convert all my graphics to pdf before I use them in LyX. But why does this happen anyway? Is there something wrong with my settings or packages installed?
