Theme Studio v5.0 - Cannot Import SVG File

I have read numerous tutorials on how to create themes using the Theme Studio, and I have created an SVG file with the Composer. When I load up the Theme Studio, I cannot import from File>Import, and there is no browse box for SVG files under the HomeScreen tab. How can I import the SVG file I have created...

Hello...that's in the "Theme the Home Screen" part, right under where you choose the background pic.  Click the folder all the way to the right where it says SVG File.

It is in the "Theme the Homescreen" and there is nothing underneath the choose background pic option, apart from the Tab options, Tab Focus options, Zen Application List and the Application list.  And i cannot import from File>Import.  It says "example.svg cannot be loaded"...etc.....?

Hi....does your screen not look like this?  File>Import is to import .thm files, not .svg files.

Re: Theme Studio v5.0 - Cannot Import SVG File

aah...for you to be able to import a .svg file, the layout of the theme you're building must be "custom".  You choose that when you go to File>New.  See if that does the trick.
