Splitting svg with icons into squares (individual icon files)

Postby PrzemoF » Sat Mar 02, 2019 4:40 am

I'm not sure where to post it - please move it if there is a better place.

I'm looking for a way of automatic splitting an svg file containing icons for FreeCAD into individual svg files. Is there a way of extracting content of svg from a given coordinates + box size? The icons are located in a regular grid. An inkscape plugin/extension/script would be perfect, but I'm ready to use any open source solution. I can provide a sample file.

Please share any ideas, as I have none at this moment :)

Try https://gitlab.com/su-v/inx-exportobjects (just make sure they are all individual objects and that the objects have the desired bounding box. If needed, add an invisible rectangle or square to each one).
