Optimized SVG "could not be saved."

Hi, there, doesn't anyone know why I get this "C:\users\desktop\dsdsk.svg could not be saved" message when I try to save a svg as Optimized SVG.
I don't have the same problem when I'm saving as Inkscape SVG.

Thank you.
David

Hi David, that sounds strange.

Can you:
- give us your exact Inkscape version (see Help > About)
- try out if extensions work
- share the SVG file

Hi Moini,

The Inkscape version is 0.92.
What I want to do is to turn PNG image to optimized SVG file, so what extension option should I choose to use?
Here's the original PNG file and the Inkscape SVG that I saved.

I resized page size to drawing and saved as optimized SVG without an error:

Hi, Polygon
What size did you use when you save that as optimized SVG?
No matter how small the image I use Inkscape always pops out a windows say" ....could not be saved."

Well, you don't need to resize the pace to fit the artwork, but that is the easy way to get the artwork inside the page boundaries.

The artwork in the uploaded svg is way outside the page.

I don't believe that saving as optimized SVG yields a 'could not be saved' error, when the object is outside the page boundaries.

So, please try what happens if you use any extension (in the extensions menu). E.g. Document info, those don't need any objects selected in the file.
