# Sharelatex - “Package svg error file is missing” while I have not changed anything

I was using Sharelatex a few days ago and I made some changes to my file, compiled it and I saved my file as PDF. It has all the figures and plots I used via the svg package. Today I tried to open Sharelatex to make some changes again and I got lots of errors. One for every svg figure I have used and it says:

main.tex, line 136
Package svg Error: File fig1_svg-tex.pdf' is missing.
See the svg package documentation for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
...
l.136 \includesvg[scale=0.335]{fig1.svg}
Did you run the export with Inkscape? There's no file ./svg-inkscape/fig1_svg-tex.pdf'


I have not changed anything, the \usepackage{svg} line is still on the top of the document and my svg files are still there without name changes. I tried uploading them again and it didn't help.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! I don't know ShareLaTeX that well, but does is allow you to run with shell escape because this is required for automatic execution of the conversion? – TeXnician Aug 19 '18 at 7:47
• @jinkouishiki said, in an answer: I have the exact same issue. I did not change anything and suddenly all my svg files are not displayed with the same error. – Harald Hanche-Olsen Aug 19 '18 at 9:41
• Try to reproduce the issue in a small example document and alert ShareLaTeX staff. If this really worked before and does not any more they should be able to figure out what the problem is. – moewe Aug 19 '18 at 11:31
• @TeXnician No, I don't think it does really. It doesn't have that many options. The straightforwardness and easy sharing are the main reason I have been using it. – Alireza Aug 19 '18 at 11:44
• @moewe Tried it in a new project and got the same error. Reported the issue. – Alireza Aug 19 '18 at 12:02

Yesterday I had setup a MWE and reported it to Sharelatex. My MWE is :

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[notransparent]{svg}

\begin{document}
\includesvg[width=1.5cm,height=1.5cm]{info}
\end{document}
`

The info.svg file was an icon publicly available on the Fontawesome website, but any svg file named "icon.svg" in the top-level folder would work. My setup looked like the image below

## Update 20 Aug 2018, 8:30 (UTC+2)

This morning, I tried my MWE again and it compiled. So I'd say that the issue was solved by Sharelatex team. this internal Sharelatex issue looks solved.

Result is inline with expectation :

• Hi, John from Overleaf/ShareLaTeX here: yes, it was a bug, sorry. It should be fixed now. Thanks for reporting this. – jdleesmiller Aug 20 '18 at 14:24
