Danyang Yi (nirenyang) set Type to Bug.

The issues here are caused by overlapping faces (which give flipped normals).

Please upload the blend file before pressing Alt+C on the SVG file.

Thanks for Campbell Barton' explanation. That's my fault. Sorry.

Best Wishes and Merry Christmas!

SVG file is OK. The problem is Removing Doubles after (alt+c) convert to mesh.

Remove Doubles will bring some Overlapping faces.

So. I Make a pre-wishes (for next year). Remove doubles didn't bring Overlapping faces.

@Danyang Yi (nirenyang), Remove Doubles is simple - and prefer it doesn't attempt to be clever and make decisions about what is nice geometry or not.

It sounds like you really want to be using some polygon reduction tool (like decimate modifier).

@Campbell Barton (campbellbarton)
If we like morphing and decorating the Text. so. Text Curve should be convert to Text Mesh.

But alt-c will bring some Hard Edges (rips) then we do remove doubles (auto merge the overlapping points).

A sketch for signaling that.

Sometimes We just enjoy jobs And don't notice that Remove Doubles will bring Overlapping faces.

Should we need a kindly Overlapping Faces Detecting/Waring in Remove doubles?
