Steps to reproduce

When a use element is moved to another group in an SVG, it seems to lose the reference to its definition and becomes invisible.

This is the case in IE11: Version: 11.1358.14393.0 / Update version: 11.0.43

Update: issue also appears in:
IE11: Version: 11.1198.14393.0 / Update version: 11.0.42

Works fine in Edge.

    • I have the same issue as described on an embedded website.
      The OS is windows 7, can’t put Edge in that equipment.

      So the web interface status is currently at:
      “broken for IE 11 later than 11.0.9600.18665,
      please use Firefox or Chrome”

      The embedded browser is IE 11 though and none else so… this is a problem!

    • Anyone have a workaround?

    • Solution:
      all nodes who got a change in their father dom tree (for example with appendChild) have to be reset at their href attribute ;

      such as : useNode.setAttribute('xlink:href’, useNode.getAttribute(‘xlink:href’))

      And then voila, it shows on screen alright.

      nb: to detect tree change on use nodes, you can use a MutationObserver and then do a query to extract ‘use’ children.
