My svg images work in Writer; when I export the *.odt to *.pdf then the svg image is static.

I have a document that explains a procedure. The svg image in the document shows the sequence of steps to be followed. Whenever I export the document to be an acrobat *.pdf file, the svg image is static and does not animate.
I just want add: I saved the odt. document as .docx (Microsoft Word) format. The svg images worked perfectly. So the problem is between Libre Office and creating a *.pdf document.

The solution maybe to convert your image into a Quicktime playable movie, flash or so. I doubt that LibreOffice can handle that. See discussion here: and linked German discussion here:

Thanks. I'll try that. I have never embedded a movie/flash in a Writer document. This problem comes with the export to *.pdf. I export my documents to *.pdf when I want to share my document with someone that doesn't have Libre Office. I'll look at the discussion also. :-)
