FYI: SVG with option "svgfont" enabled hangs inkscape

Hi,
it's not directly a problem with matplotlib, but I just wanted to let
you know that SVGs generated with

matplotlib.rcParams['svg.fonttype'] = 'svgfont'

hang inkscape <https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/800265>.

Greetings,
Dieter

Yep. That's the reason that's not the default setting. The docs for svg.fonttype says:

#svg.fonttype : 'path' # How to handle SVG fonts:
# 'none': Assume fonts are installed on the machine where the SVG will be viewed.
# 'path': Embed characters as paths -- supported by most SVG renderers
# 'svgfont': Embed characters as SVG fonts -- supported only by Chrome,
# Opera and Safari
