Introduction

SVG files generated by IGb sometimes include vector graphics that extend outside image area. This is due to problems with the SVG export library IGB uses, and we aim to fix this in future versions of IGB.

Until then, you'll need to use a vector graphics editor to remove the overhanging data (see below) if necessary.
