I know from experience and from Strange overlap in SVG that if an SVG file contains partially overlapping shapes filled with the same color and not stroked, GF will engrave the areas where there is no overlap and where there is an odd number of overlaps, and leave the areas where there is an even number of overlaps untouched.
It could be that I misunderstand the SVG spec, but I think it’s pretty clear that the result should be that all overlapping areas are treated the same way as the parts with no overlaps. It’s as though GF is treating all of the same-filled and -stroked shapes an a single shape and applying an evenodd fill-rule.
Is this how it’s supposed to work? Is it just a matter of being in beta? What am I missing?
