There are a lot of SVG files located in the "QGIS Dufour" Program Files folder on my PC. I was thinking that I could find the symbol that I want to change in the GUI in this listing in InkScape so I can actually have my own custom data points. However, when I transfer the edited .svg file back to the folder it's contained in I get an error: "Error 0x80070570"


I don't know what these data are, but this is the data associated with the symbol I want to replace:

<!DOCTYPE qgis_style (View Source for full doctype...)>
- <qgis_stle version="1">
 - <symbols>
  - <symbol alpha="1" type="marker" name="star3">
.
.
.

It goes on. I'm not sure what this is.


I just want a biohazard symbol and a school symbol.


Just as an aside, can these images have JavaScript animations?

Perhaps those icons are stored as XML files... I'm not sure. –  Trancot Dec 1 '13 at 5:09

Are you just trying to change the color? –  Nathan W Dec 1 '13 at 6:21
    
I want to be able to insert my own images, so if I want a wild squiggly, then I can have a wild squiggly. If I want a picture of my very unique foot, then I can have a picture of my very unique foot, for example. –  Trancot Dec 1 '13 at 22:37
