    Tableau-generated PDF imports to Inkscape with text missing

    David Roers

      Not sure if anyone else out there likes to use the open-source Inkscape to tweak visualizations (e.g., ugly charts drawn by R, or a Tableau viz that just needs a little something).   It's with the Tableau viz that I'm having a problem.  I can "print to...PDF" from Tableau Desktop and the PDF looks great.  But when I try to import the PDF into Inkscape, everything looks great EXCEPT all the text is missing -- titles, headers, axis labels, text within legends -- everything.   Has anyone seen this behavior?  I don't have access to Adobe Illustrator, but I wonder if it, too, would repro it.  Attached is a simple Tableau PDF.   Cheers.  --dsr
