Importing an Inkscape SVG


I have a vector file I would like to import into Videoscribe, but when I try it's not performing as expected.  The file was originally an .ai that I first imported into in InDesign and saved as an .eps so I could edit it in Inkscape.  Once I finished editing the file in Inkscape I saved it as a plain svg.  Then, I uploaded that file to Videoscribe and tried adding it to my canvas.  But, the drawing shows up very small with a lot of blank space around it.  See screenshot attached.

Any ideas what's causing this issue and what I can do to resolve it?  Thanks in advance!    

Attach the actual SVG please.
Also, if you are using an inkscape version newer than 0.48.5, uninstall it and install the older version.

Hi Mike,

Here's the SVG.  Thanks again for the help!

The SVG contains a clipping path. I removed it and resaved it in AI using the recommended settings. New file is attached.
