Oxygen 19.1 not displaying BMP files inside SVG

Post by lkollar » Wed May 23, 2018 8:10 pm

Using Windows 7, 64-bit

When a DITA topic has an SVG image, and that SVG refers to a BMP (embedded or external), Oxygen displays a placeholder instead of the actual BMP image. All the SVG components display properly. Turning on "display very large images" makes no difference.

Is this something Oxygen 20.0 fixes?

Hi,

The Apache Batik library Oxygen uses to render the SVG does not seem to have default support for BMP.
Oxygen 20.0 also does not have support for this.
Could I ask you about your use case? Probably most people refer to PNG or JPEG images inside the SVG.
Do you want to use the SVG for web or for print?
The support for BMP inside SVG does not seem that hard to add though, I think I can create for youan extra JAR library to add this support to the SVG image renderer, if you are interested you can contact us using our "support@oxygenxml.com" email address.

Hi,

I created an Oxygen add-on to add this support, installation instructions can be found here:
