Once, long ago, I made an SVG Icon that worked, but many times since then I've spent hours failing.
The shape I want is a speech bubble with a butterfly in it I usually use Affinity Designer on the Mac and it took me about 3 minutes to make it... but it doesn't import into Filemaker.
The shapes are started with are from www.indats.com Icon Manager (their website seems to be down, but it was a Filemaker file with a bunch of "Filemaker safe" SVGs (source attached). Both work fine in FIlemaker alone.

I tried manually adding some code I found online to make it Filemaker-friendly, but no dice.
I tried Vectornator, but it crashes.
I tried Sketch.app but it crashed, and also didn't seem to be able to subtract one shape from another for me.
I tried using Geist's SVG converter, with no luck https://fmsvg.proofgeist.com
I tried SVG Minimizer https://www.svgminify.com in the hopes that it would streamline my SVGs.
I tried the Filemaker exporter by @cheesus and it shows up correctly in the web view, but the exported shape doesn't include the cut out butterfly.
I tried exporting as PDF, and converting that to an SVG and also exporting as an EPS and converting that into an SVG... no joy... butterfly goes away.
When I import into Filemaker sometimes I get a speech bubble that's the right size. Other times the wrong size. But never a cut out butterfly.
Any thoughts? I was wondering if it has to do with the "cutout", but the other shapes I started with had cutouts.
Here's the file I ended up with that doesn't work.
