pdf to svg ? Inkscape doest import text as paths.

Inkscape doest import text as paths and if it doesnt has the font it replaces it.

I want the exact same font even though it will be convertet to path , but i want the exact shape.

Any ideas other thatn rasterizing ? as rasterizing still changes the shape.


If you open the .pdf with Gimp you will get a dialogue that will allow you to increase the resolution, so you can smooth the font as much as you need, then save it as a bitmap.

Gimp also has an export as .svg script:-

…or you could install the font…?
