When I upload a plain svg file made in Inkscape to the GlowForge , I get an anomalous gray background the size of the page as a separate layer in the GF GUI that wants to engrave it.
When I upload the same file in PDF format, I get only the vectors I desire, in this case the border of Montana.
I have the background in Inkscape set to transparent. Any idea why this is happening? Are others experiencing this?
I just set the “bad” layer to ignore, but it does interfere with being able to see the vectors.
SVG File: Note the two layers in the Art Panel on the left and the gray background that obscures the vector data
PDF File: Note there is only one layer in the Art Panel, the desired vectors of Montana that are more easily visible.
