Well, once again, I was not clear.

What you mention is not what I am looking for because I already Save in 
Intaglio/SVG and also Save A Copy in cropped pdf which is what gets 
included with \includegraphics{pdf}.

But if I were to send you the book for you to edit, I would have to send 

    - the LaTeX source
    - plus all the pdf that are included so you can typeset it
    - plus all the SVG so you can edit the graphics.

That is why I said it would be rather cumbersome.

So, my question, triggered by the  threads  "Should I install X11" and 
"making pictures", is whether there is a way automatically to convert 
SVG graphics into code that could then be inserted into the LaTeX source 
which would then result in a single source file that you would then be 
able both to print and edit.

Best regards
