I have a symbol which I would like to use in a document as a math symbol. (In a manner akin to the symbol $*$, say - as a subscript, most often.)
This symbol is a black-on-white inkscape .svg file, with native dimensions 3mmx3mm. If I follow this solution to the same problem, exporting the symbol first as a .pdf, the on-screen document looks great and does exactly as I want.
However, when it comes to printing such a document, every piece of math involving this symbol prints in a low-resolution, fuzzy 'picture' style. I presume that the printer is parsing these pieces as images, and whatever clever thing it tries to do to make images look correct is doing something bad to the surrounding text.
Is there a way to include my symbol in a manner that the printer parses it as a normal character, and doesn't ruin the surrounding math?
For full transparency, I'm printing using Preview on a Macbook pro, through my university's printing system.
