Hi,
It seems that current SVG support is done via ImageMagick, which requires (a lot of) DLLs in the application's folder. I suspect that many ImageEn users also have a subscription to DevExpress which supports SVG images: support is already backed in the application and used to display most user interface icons... Would you consider supporting DevExpress' SVG importer in a future update ?
Thank you.

Hi,

Not all users have DevExpress, but Skia4Delphi is free to use. Maybe that way SVG support or better yet native support. :)

Hi Marko,
If I'm not mistaken, Skia4Delphi also requires quite heavy DLLs to be deployed, which would be the same problem as ImageMagick for me.
Native SVG support would be great but while this is available, it might be easy enough to add a conditional compilation option and use DevExpress to draw the SVG to a canvas.

Hi

I have used DevExpress in the past and they are very good. It would be interesting to know how much overlap there is with ImageEn customers. Unfortunately we don't have DevExpress, so cannot test this at our end.

You could easily add support for it using the add-in functionality:

See the demo:

Let us know if you have any difficulty, and it would be good to see your code when it is done.
