I created an image in Sodipodi and saved it as a standard SVG file.
When I opened it in Illustrator 9.0, the XML appears instead of the
I ran across another post where someone turned their sodipodi
objects into paths, saved the SVG file, and opened it successfully
That's fine if you don't need to edit the image, but how can I open
the file in Illustrator and still modify the objects?
Thank you for your help.

Good day, Shade.
Try copying the image to the clipboard and then pasting it into AI.
(Happily, though trained and fluent in several versions of many of their
products, I don't own, support or use any Adobe products [aside from Reader so
I'm not sure it'll work.)
I could be wrong, but can't you just break apart/ungroup the image elements
once it's imported through the method you mentioned and then edit it from
If no of these help you, sorry.
If these techniques work, please let us know.
For future reference:
Although I rarely use Inkscape (though it has more features than Sodipodi and
it's also a great program), I noticed it does have an option to save a file in
Adobe Illustrator format.
(Note: I'm not sure how well it saves into that format because I don't have
Illustrator to check.)

I would be very interested to test, as i have both applications.
Allow me to introduce myself - I'm new here, and although not able to
contribute as a coder, I'm very interested in testing from a
professional graphic designer's point of view. I'd like to encourage
more designers to use GNU/Linux, and to encourage development of
applications to a professional standard.
I also wondered exactly what your aims and purposes are for Sodipodi? At
present I'm writing a round-up of graphics applications for Linux User
and Developer magazine, and wondered what your intentions are for
Sodipodi and its functionality in a professional graphic design world.
To be honest, I'm a little perplexed myself as very few designers use
pure vector graphics thesedays...
