Text not showing in LaTeX on PDFs made in Inkscape

I've not been blogging for a while, due to a pretty time-consuming combination of writing papers, making presentations and writing my thesis (on-going!).

Anyway, a quick post in the vein of it-could-have-saved-me-a-minute-if-I'd-seen-it: what to do when you've made a PDF in LaTeX which includes PDF figures make in Inkscape, but the text isn't appearing?

If you've checked out the two obvious search hits and still no text, try unticking both the 'Convert text to paths' and 'PDF+LaTeX...' options (the two that you'd think should ensure your text is correctly displayed!), it worked for me.
