# Is there a way to export text to SVG as text, rather than paths?

When I use Export to export graphics in SVG format, all text in the the exported file seems to get converted to paths. Is there a way to prevent this?

Is there a way to get Export to include font information in exported SVGs?

I can't reproduce this. It exports as text in a basic test (ExportString[Graphics[Text["boobooboo"]], "SVG"]). Can you please expand your question with more information to make it reproducible? –  Szabolcs Jan 16 at 21:39
@Szabolcs: How about something like Export["test.pdf", Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}], "PDF"]. –  raxacoricofallapatorius Jan 16 at 21:41
Are you talking about SVG or PDF? –  Szabolcs Jan 16 at 21:45
Anyway, I cannot reproduce this problem. Text is exported as <text> tags even in your last example (if I change it to SVG). I have M version 9 on OS X. –  Szabolcs Jan 16 at 21:48
@Szabolcs: OK, that's weird. That simple example works for me too. But with more complex figures I get no text, just paths. I'll need to whittle down something from one of my notebooks into a MWE. –  raxacoricofallapatorius Jan 16 at 21:59
