I would like to import SVG files like symbols. But when I do it, then some elements inside my former SVG file are not in the right place.

As you can see below, on right is after import inside yEd like symbol. On left the original svg file.

yEd uses the Apache Batik SVG toolkit for displaying SVGs. If your SVG symbol does not look right, this is either a Batik shortcoming or a problem with the SVG document. Unfortunately, I do not have enough SVG know-how to determine which of the two cases it is.
