Displaying SVG in toolbar

I'm trying to code a custom toolbar panel, but I can't get an SVG to display on the toolbar button. I've tried everything I can think of, comparing with add-ons where they do work, but I just can't get my SVG to display. I did get it to work briefly before SU5, but since then. no.

It loads and displays fine in every other editor/viewer I've tried, just not in the toolbar.

Can anyone tell me how to get this to work?

I've attached my SVG file, if anyone can help it would be appreciated.

Using the template from github I copied the atc svg but renamed it to match the template svg. Sadly this still doesn't work so there must be something else at play here.

I downloaded the navigraph ingamepanel and they had the icon in a different folder structure.

I tested the github template with an updated layout.json and the icon now loads. I'm not sure if the icon needs to still be in both locations but the navigraph panel has it in both.

The folder structure needs to be.

That by itself doesn't seem to make a difference for me - it seem to be something in the SVG file itself. My SVG doesn't work while those created by other developers do (when copied to my project). I just can't work out what it is that's different!

I got mine working with the following...

Thanks for that - your icon works fine, but when I substitute my paths leaving everything else as-is, it doesn't. So there must be an issue with my path definitions, maybe it goes outside the boundaries or something? And what does that matrix transform do? Investigation continuing.

Hi, could you paste your layout.json too?

I'm having the same issue as you were and @RoscoHead is.
