Unable to accurately scale SVG graphics in PD.

Post by Chris Knudsen »

V5.3.28

While placing our SVG logo I noticed that there are no convenient ways to enter image size.

And even less convenient, is that PD seems to resize/re-scale the image when it's imported... so, it is always necessary to re-scale when placing a new image.

Currently, one can only enter the origin.

Re-scaling must be done with a mouse (cannot enter distance/coordinates anywhere). This is complicated by the fact that the aspect ratio has been changed by PD during import, and the X:Y aspect cannot be locked.

Hey Chris,

The aspect ratio not coming in not correctly and is a bug if it is happening.

Good point it would be good to have a tool were you can change the scale exactly. I'll add this for a future feature.

Thanks,
Matt

Opening the file with Inkscape on the left. PD on the right.

No changes made in either program on opening/importing.

The PD SVG import looks to be 'square'.

ah. Looks like it normalizes to 1:1 ... for some reason but that is wrong. Will get a bug fix in to keep the proper aspect ratio. 8-)
