Thank you so much for this tutorial!
I converted my floorplan to SVG and it works great.
One thing that I would like to share though: I had issues with text elements in the SVG (they would just not show in HABPanel). The solution:
Inkscape inserts text as “Flowed Text” and it has to be converted to an actual text element (select the flowed text element, click “Text” >> “Convert to Text” in the toolbar)
Then the text will show up just fine (and with it the item values).
