Sketsa SVG Editor is a vector drawing application based on SVG. It features various tools for optimizing content creation, giving designers unsurpassed support for creativity. It offers both visual design tool and source editing tool.
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an open-standard language for describing two-dimensional (2D) graphics in XML. It is a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) recommendation. SVG allows for three types of graphic objects: vector graphic shapes (e.g., paths consisting of straight lines and curves), images and text. Graphical objects can be styled, transformed and composited into previously rendered objects. The feature set includes nested transformations, clipping paths, alpha masks, filter effects and template objects.
The SVG specification is available from the W3C Web site.
Currently, Sketsa SVG Editor only support SVG Profile Full, there are no formal support for other SVG Profiles eg: SVGT or SVGB yet.
However, Sketsa produces very clean XML code and no proprietary namespace added. This means you could use Sketsa to produce SVGT or SVGB compliant
code by changing document version and baseProfile attributes. The most important things regarding SVGT or SVGB are that you
must be aware the supported features set in each profile, for example: Filter is not supported on SVGT.
For information in specific profiles please check out the following specs
- Mobile SVG Profiles: SVG Tiny and SVG Basic
- SVG Mobile Requirements
Sketsa SVG Editor requires Java 6 Update 26 or higher.
Java is available from Java site (http://www.java.com/getjava).
Currently, not all SVG features are implemented by Sketsa. However, you could still use the Source Editor to write SVG features you want. The unimplemented features will be implemented through time and subsequent release.
Currently, Sketsa Visual tool generate all coordinates and lengths without a unit identifier. Which mean the given coordinate or length is assumed to be in user units (i.e a value in the current user coordinate system).
All modern web browser support SVG. eg: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari
In order to save as a svgz (compressed SVG file), on the file save dialog box, specify ".svgz" as the file extension. For example type "test.svgz" instead of "test.svg".
In order to move or resize Text Object, please use Transform tool (translate or scale).
You can change in the Preferences - Code Format. In there you also can change several other values like tab witdh, line width, or line break. For style it only affect new or modified element, it does not change existing element.
You can change canvas size using source editor and change the outermost SVG width/height attribute.
Later, you can change the width/height attribute during the deployment.
- Why do the canvas show nothing when I load some SVG File?
Because there is not enough memory to perform the required task. To specify Sketsa memory, please use Java option -J-Xmx to specify the maximum size of the memory allocation pool.
For example to use 512 Mb memory in Sketsa SVG Editor
- Edit the following file [install_dir]/etc/sketsa.conf
- Find the following
default_options="--branding sketsa -J-client -J-Xss2m -J-Xms32m ..."
- Edit by adding -J-Xmx512m eg:
default_options="--branding sketsa -J-client -J-Xss2m -J-Xms32m -J-Xmx512m ..."
note: The '#' indicate it is a comment.
It is because the Sketsa use relative path to reference external resources. Please check the external references is available and in the correct path.
Current Sketsa release requires width and height attribute in absolute length (not percentage) in
outermost svg during editing. Later, you can change the width/height attribute during the deployment.
We are still looking for good solution for this problem.
- How do I change canvas size?
It could be the viewbox attribute. Please try remove the viewbox attribute and check whether it solve the problem or not.
It is because some image viewer does not support alpha channel correctly. Those viewers display black transparent background instead of white background. In order to avoid this please select Force Transparent White option on the export dialog box. It controls whether the encoder should force the image's fully transparent pixels to be fully transparent white instead of fully transparent black. This is useful when the image is displayed in a viewer which does not support transparency correctly and lets the image display with a white background instead of a black background.
However, by using Force Transparent White option the result image will display differently over a white background in a viewer that supports transparency.
It is because cut, copy, and paste only copy the element itself, it does not copy the referenced element. For example gradient, filter, etc do not copied.
