Hi greensock community,


Its been a long time since I have used Morph SVG plugin. Anyway, originally I was getting the "convert to path" error even though I had no shapes and everything was in path already. When I use the "MorphSVGPlugin.convertToPath" it throws a namespace error after that. Not sure what I am missing.

Hey jstafford :)


Looks like you're naming and trying to morph the entire SVG. Just move your ID to the paths themselves and it all should work fine for you.

//switch this
<svg id="arrow-left-post-hover" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 451.8 451.8">
<path d="M97.1,225.9c0-8.1,3.1-16.2,9.3-22.4L300.7,9.3c12.4-12.4,32.4-12.4,44.8,0c12.4,12.4,12.4,32.4,0,44.7L173.5,225.9

// to this
<svg  version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 451.8 451.8">
<path id="arrow-left-post-hover" d="M97.1,225.9c0-8.1,3.1-16.2,9.3-22.4L300.7,9.3c12.4-12.4,32.4-12.4,44.8,0c12.4,12.4,12.4,32.4,0,44.7L173.5,225.9

Hopefully that helps.


Happy morphing.
