I used Libreoffice 3.6 to create some documents with some SVG images (insert -> image). When I open now these documents in Libreoffice 4, the SVG images are not shown. Is there some bug in Libreoffice 4? Can you reproduce it?

I also tried to create a new empty document and insert the SVG image but the image still isnt visible after inserting.

I tried to deinstall and reinstall Libreoffice 4, but the images are still not shown and embedded SVG images are just white square / not shown at all ...

This is really annoying, thought 4.0 is final and SVG images dont work anymore? Really embarassing =>

Please fix this as soon as possible =(

Hi @Daniel Ruf,

Per fdo#60471 "After upgrade from 3.6 -> 4.0, SVG images no longer display properly", this bug is being actively triaged.

Is there some bug in Libreoddice 4?


Can you reproduce it?

Yes. The OP, you, and the QA contact assigned (@jorendc) have all confirmed this problem.

Jorend has also bibisected the bug so that the developers can more quickly hone-in on what particular set of commits introduced this regression.
