If I go back into Inkscape, and copy and paste the circles (holes), from the first (frontwards facing) file over to the second (backwards facing) file, essentially replacing the circles in the copied version with the original version, it shows up ok:
6 . It took several days to work out what was happening, and what was consistent about it, because this seems to happen with any file I make and then flip backwards, but if I copy a design and dont flip it backwards, it seems to show up fine in the GUI.
I have updated Inkscape to the newest version, and I have checked the object properties on the circles every step of the way. It does not seem to make a difference if they are ‘circles’ or ‘paths’, and I’ve tried both. In the examples above, every cut hole is a ‘path’.
Thank you in advance, this is driving me a bit nuts.
So I dragged and dropped your file into my interface and then copied the non mirrored one and pasted it and mirrored it in the interface. As you can see, your file had replaced the circles with the diamonds, but when mirrored in the interface, the circles remained circles.
