    Thumbs down SVG Application Icon cracks in E61/N73

    Hi,

    I have an svg icon created for my application. It is displayed properly in 5700 and N95 8GB models. However, in N73 and E61 the icon on the application menus cracks.

    This is one known issue I could locate

    Compatibility problem with binary-encoded SVG images

    However, N73 and E61 uses 3rd Edition FP1 SDK so this should not have been a problem.

    Any idea what could be the problem.

    Re: SVG Application Icon cracks in E61/N73

    Hi,

    I had a look at the Recommended SDK link at the bottom of the page.

    Which provides a link for 3rd Ed. FP1 SDK.

    However, it was clearly mentioned on top that

    Developer Platform S60 3rd Edition (initial release)

    is used.

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    Recommended SDK(s)-link goes to a page where you can download 16 Symbian C++ SDK-s actually.
    For selecting the proper one, focus a bit on the top of the device-pages, "Technical Specs", "Developer Platform".

    I've asked for this problem to be fixed, by providing a true recomandation for the SDK with direct link to the SDK suitable for the device selected.

    Your feedback is also welcomed whenever you see that the information provided on the site is less than optimal. There's a "Community Notes" feature on all the site pages.

    Re: SVG Application Icon cracks in E61/N73

    Hi,

    I tried using the mifconv.exe from 3rd Edition SDK. But I am still facing the same problem. The application icon cracks for N73 and E61 works fine with others N95, N82 and 5700.

    What could be the problem?


    Thank you,

    You can check if the SVG encoder (C:\Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd_MR\S60Tools\svg2svgt\installer\svg2svgtconverter.exe) does anything good for you.
    Have you actually tried that /X switch, described in the link from your initial post?

    Re: SVG Application Icon cracks in E61/N73

    Hi,

    svg2svgtconverter - is used for converting svg file format to svg tiny format if I am not wrong. My file is according to the svg tiny 1.1 format. Also it would not have worked in N95/N82 if it wasnot in svgt format.

    Also the mifconv.exe of 3rd Edition SDK does not have the /X option

    On executing

    mifconv icon.mif /X /c32 qgn_menu.svg
    It shows error

    ERROR: Invalid argument: /X

    You are supposed to use the /X with the S60 3rd Edition FP1 SDK.
    On S60 3rd Edition MR the compression is not used (or you can asume /X as set by default).

    As you have already noticed, noFP and FP1 devices have different capabilities in terms of rendering SVG files.
    So you may really want to test that converter.
    Also the mifconv.exe of 3rd Edition SDK does not have the /X option
    Ok, that is true. That test could have been done when using the FP1 SDK. Now (with MR) the plain mifconv is enough.

    I will try generating the SVGT file again and check if it works.

    Depending on the tool you use, you may also try creating SVG-T 1.0, instead of 1.1

    Re: SVG Application Icon cracks in E61/N73

    Hi,

    I got the problem fixed. I was initially trying with converting my image from .png to svgt, which didnot work.

    Now this time I tried making my icon in corel draw and then exporting it to svgt. This worked for me. I think not all icons get converted properly. Especially if they have odd shape and transparency.

    Thank you for helping me out.
