I used it to convert a number of coat of arms SVGs taken from Wikipedia into pdf. It works very well; except, the resulting pdfs were turned on their heads. This wasn't hard to fix. SVG detective converted all SVGs without problems (except for the one mentioned), also those on which Illustrator failed. Thank you for making this available!

SVG Detective did exactly what it's supposed to do for me - I opened an SVG file and was able to export a PDF without any hassle whatsoever. That said, it's something of a one-trick pony, but for that trick, it's a very handy little app.

Downloaded this, put it in my Applications folder, launched it, then chose 'Open' to open a file. The app just blips out of existence, crashes and doesn't even trigger the crash reporter dialog. Using under 10.4.9.

Follow-up to my previous post: The converted SVGs are upside-down and horizontally flipped. May be a problem with the SVGs I used, but they display correctly in a web browser.
