SVG re-rendering when zoomed

Post by Shores » Tue Oct 16, 2018 12:49 pm


May I suggest a feature, maybe optional?

While when you zoom in a raster image it's perfectly OK that you get to see bigger and bigger pixels of the image, the vector images contained in the SVG format are supposed to resize perfectly without any bigger pixels; their vector nature means that the image can be infinitely zoomed in or out and it should remain pixel perfect, just as it remains pixel perfect if resized in a web browser.

XvViewMP, instead, renders the image only one time at the internally indicated size, and then uses it just as if it was a raster image.

Could an option be added to re-render SVGs any time they are zoomed in or out? That would be a very welcome addition!
