Description

SVG is a pretty idiosyncratic choice. Is it something to do with jsroot? You must have pngs already available for the fallback. Other popular formats are eps and pdf.

History

I picked SVGs for the fallback because they're the vector format natively supported by browsers. There aren't any other formats currently being made.

However, the JSROOT canvas will produce PNGs for you (click the little camera icon).

I was hesitant to produce any more formats because (a) it will slow processing down more and (b) we already make zillions of files (MCCheckout, for instance, literally produces 4000 files as it stands).

Is the need so desperate that we need anything beyond what's already there?

#3 Updated by Christopher Backhouse about 3 years ago

Ah, now that I'm not in fallback mode I don't even see the svg option. Can the camera button be made to give a better filename than just name.png?

#4 Updated by Jeremy Wolcott about 3 years ago

Possibly, I'll look into it. JSROOT isn't hugely configurable so I won't promise anything...

Based on their documentation and a bit of trawling through the source, I don't see any way of changing the default name for that image, so I'm going to close this bug. (I will note that in most browsers you can change the name of a downloaded file in the save dialog that pops up during a download -- hopefully that's good enough?)
