    Save as SVG is "expanding" transforms

    Steven Churchill

      When I apply a transform (such as a Shear) to an element, say a Rectangle, and save it as SVG, the rectangle is converted to a polygon where the vertices are tranformed by the shear. Due to our SVG workflow, we'd like to preserve the Rect in the SVG where the Rect has the trasform="matrix..." attribute containing the affine shear transform.

       

      Note that the save as SVG operation even gives an error message before saving: "transforms are expanded" (but then it goes ahead and saves anyway.)

       

      Is there any way not to "expand" the transform when saving the SVG?

       

      Thanks,
