I’m using SVG for my figures in LibreOffice Writer. Mostly it’s working really well, but I’ve come across a few limitations. There are two I’d particularly love to find solutions for: importing macros and importing bitmaps. The two lines below work when viewing svg files in Image Viewer but when I import the images into my LO .odt document the elements don’t show up.
use href=“defs.txt#widget” x=“20” y=“20”
image href=“screenshot.png” x=“100” y=“100” height=“100” width=“100”
The first is so I can have a library of macros that all my figures use without having to copy and maintain big chunks of svg code into each figure I create.
The second is for doing screen grab markup (I’m writing user manuals). I can only get bitmaps to show up by dumping the base64 pixel data directly into the svg image. That isn’t viable for large images.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
