    Default remove white background in SVG

    I have an svg numbered hex map that from http://hexmaps.appspot.com/. It's a nice generator but the one thing I need is for the map to be transparent. is there a way to remove the white from an svg in inkscape or something similar?

    Have you tried Isomage's hexmap generator? It produces transparent SVGs. Just do a search on 'Isomage's House' in google and you'll find it.

    Open the file in a text editor and delete the group labelled "hex fill"

    In the default generated grid you would have to delete this:
    Code:
      <g inkscape:groupmode="layer" inkscape:label="Hex Fill"> 
      <polygon points="86.4,0.0 115.2,49.9 86.4,99.8 28.8,99.8 0.0,49.9 28.8,0.0" style="stroke:none;fill:#fff;"/><polygon points="86.4,99.8 115.2,149.6 86.4,199.5 28.8,199.5 0.0,149.6 28.8,99.8" style="stroke:none;fill:#fff;"/><polygon points="86.4,199.5 115.2,249.4 86.4,299.3 28.8,299.3 0.0,249.4 28.8,199.5" style="stroke:none;fill:#fff;"/><polygon points="86.4,299.3 115.2,349.2 86.4,399.1

    Thats a good way to do it. :-) Fortunately though the author of the hex map engine told me how to remove the layer in inkscape. I simply lacked the knowledge at the time on how to do that. I should have realized it would be similar to photoshop in that respect. Thanks for your help though.
