### Goal

Generate SVG file for TikZ graphics.

### Method

- TeX → PDF with PDFLaTeX
- PDF → SVG with
`dvisvgm -P filename`

Example: I generated a PGF plot from the source code on my personal template.

### Problem

When I applied this method to the following TeX code in my previous post,
`dvisvgm -P`

returns a blank SVG.

```
\documentclass[tikz,border=2pt]{standalone}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\pgfplotsset{compat=1.6}
\usetikzlibrary{patterns}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{axis}[axis lines=center,legend style={at={(0.7,0.7)},anchor=south west}]
\addplot [domain=-3:3, thick, smooth, yellow] { 1/sqrt(2*pi)*exp(-x^2/2) };
\addlegendentry{$y = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}} e^{-x^2/2}$};
\addplot [dashed, yellow] coordinates {(1.5,0) (1.5,0.14)};
\addlegendentry{99th percentile};
\addplot[domain=-3:1.5, pattern=north east lines,draw=none, fill opacity=0.3]
{ 1/sqrt(2*pi)*exp(-x^2/2) } \closedcycle;
\end{axis}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}
```

This code passes the compiler.

### Related GitHub Issue

mgieseki/dvisvgm#158: OP used `pattern=bricks`

in his LaTeX code.

- failed: TeX → DVI → SVG
- succeeded: TeX → DVI → PS → PDF

He claimed that that’s reproducible with TeX Live 2021.

The project owner said that that’s a known issue with version 2.11.1, and that’s fixed in later version.

However, I would wait until MikTeX includes this update to avoid compatibility issues.
