SVG - Scalable Vector Graphics - Adobe SVG Viewer etc

oh-- sorry-- the BUG (if that's what we should call it... it does occur on each SVG view, per Zoom attempts)... all of this viewwing is great, but the SVG's often take up a whole lot of space (for i often design "off of the canvas", or page of the SVG in [my design prog of choice, Inkscape - see inkscape.org for mre info] ), so i wish to ZOOM in or out-- and when hitting the Zoom button when viewing the SVG image, that's when XnView MP does crash.

UPDATE:

SVG ZOOM IS POSSIBLE IN XNVIEW MP , AND NO CRASH!

however, in the current beta release :wink:, the user must right click to access Zoom in / Zoom out, the built-in Adobe SVG viewer** which appear on-right*-click [*alt-mouse], not unlike the Adobe (former, Macromedia) Flash viewer controls replace the 'default' context-menu, when the mouse hovers a 'Flash object' from the browser viewport



**as tested on windows Xp sp3. considering this seems to be associated w/ the XnView MP integration w/ Internet Explorer v8, again, as tested on Win XP, I apologize for I must warn that this info could not be accurate for Linux, as there is no OEM iE for linux [known to this user], and i can't speak for OS X. I suspect that XnView MP has accommodations [currently, or at least under development] for each platform. For example, on Linux, perhaps Konqueror, Galeon, or Epiphany is loaded [where iE is, in XP] in which case the WebKit or Gecko native capabilities would probably take over , (as it does by default, InternetExplorer in win while my default browser might be Safari [Webkit on Windows XP], or Gecko some such... Fire / 'monkey / 'zilla-mino-- it's always IE, in XnView MP). I believe it is also worthy to remark upon Internet Explorer being [methinks] the lone-ranger w/out SVG support, right? And, although Presto/ Opera supports SVG, as previously mentioned/rambleababled, albeit, it is not a default htmlviewer for any platform known to this luser, so is likely not-- ah who knows! Whatever the situation, on whatever platform-- i am confident that XnView development has this under control-- considering the whole point of MP is to be portable, cross-platform!... uh... right?
:-)

my apologies again, for less-than brilliant feedback. i'm sure the leaders will have a more informative direction on this topic, once they have time to address it properly. thanks again. for those who have yet to check it out-- you may find most success by using "Open With" from XnView 1.9x, pointing to XnView MP-- to open an SVG image (as i've found it the only way to successfully get MP to "view" SVG at all, but once you get there-- you're good to go! do a slideshow, right click, zoom out, do whatever. enjoy!)
